OpenStack Seattle Meetup: SDN with OpenFlow & Avoiding Installation Battlescars

We will have two presentations this month.


Software-Defined Networking with OpenFlow

presentation by Tim Miller of Blue Box Group

OpenStack networking supports several pluggable backends. Perhaps the most flexible and intriguing of these is the OpenVSwitch plugin, which is built atop the OpenFlow protocol.
This talk describes the low-level details of the OpenFlow protocol, how it is implemented in both the software OpenVSwitch and in off-the-shelf physical switches, and how it is used by OpenStack Neutron to provide such features as tenant-isolated networks and overlapping subnets.

Additionally, an OpenFlow sandbox development environment will be demonstrated, which provides a simple way to begin getting one's hands dirty with this exciting technology.


Avoiding Battlescars while Installing OpenStack

presentation by Tom Spoonemore and Raj Singh

Trying to install OpenStack from the online docs? There are a number of traps to avoid and this presentation will help you sidestep them and get up and running. Tom Spoonemore and Raj Singh will provide tips, tricks, and show you the painpoints for getting OpenStack going.

    We're actively recruiting both mentors and interns for the Outreach Program for Women. Rackspace is sponsoring one intern, and I'm still seeking funding for additional interns. Support levels start at $5750 for one intern.

    The program starts in December 2013, going until March 2014


    Thanks for helping us spread the word! Feel free to ask me any questions on or off (the [masked]) list.
