OpenStack is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform developed by the Open Source community and is designed to provide orchestration for building clouds on the fly. OpenStack allows virtual machines to be spun up in dynamic environments and benefits from the contributions of thousands of developers working on several components including but not limited to compute, networking, and storage.
In this talk, we will talk a stroll down memory lane from a networking perspective. We will recall the early stages of Nova-Networking, how it evolved to Neutron today, and look at what to expect in the future of OpenStack networking. We will discuss the network functionality and its shortcomings over the evolution of Neutron. Let’s network!
