eBay Inc. has one of the largest deployments of Openstack clouds and has been at the forefront of deploying 

Openstack in several environments that include eBay MarketPlaces and PayPal production, development and 

QA environments.


In this talk we present the challenges faced in scaling LBaaS to serve our massive muti-tenant cloud needs 

and our architecture and solutions to address them. We will go through our topology, deployment patterns, 

migration, feature implementations and enhancements to Openstack LBaaS.


Some of the areas we will discuss are listed below:

  • Multi-Region, Muti-VPC Deployment Architecture

  • Migration Challenges (from legacy to LBaaS). Filling gaps. Challenges for hitless migration

  • IP reusability and Floating IPs for VIPs

  • SSL Cert Handling (API/CLI/UI)

  • Shared SSL profiles

  • Shared Network for Members

  • DNS/Designate integration

  • Advanced health monitoring

  • New Horizon LBaaS UI (demo)

  • North-South and East-West Load Balancing

  • Hardware LB device integration with LBaaS in overlay network (Also, deployment in SDN environment)

  • LBaaS agent HA and Automation
