The Neutron team was busy during the Kilo cycle adding many enhancements to the the latest release.  In this session, we’ll dive into the new Hierarchical Port Binding feature and why deployers will want to enable it.  The session will start with a look at traditional pre-Kilo architectures using VLAN, GRE and VXLAN and cover the inefficiencies present in the deployments.  We’ll then walk through the basics of hierarchical port binding and how current architectures will benefit.  This session will include a demonstration of hierarchical port binding that combines open components of Linux, Neutron and switches supporting ONIE from the Open Compute Project. We’ll close with a survey how this architecture compares with other open source deployment options for Neutron.
