Time for a new meetup, before 2014 runs out.
This time we will have two speakers and the topic focus is on networking:
• Spyridon Dosis: Neutron - Behind the Scenes
In this talk, we present a technical overview of Neutron, the advanced networking service for OpenStack clouds. We discuss the services' components, how they are positioned and interact in a multi-host installation and how they interface with other core components such as Open vSwitch, Iptables and Linux network namespaces. We examine the lifecycle of a network packet as it flows through an OpenStack cloud for various scenarios. The talk rounds up with a discussion of possible Neutron technical set-ups and configurations as well as recent advancements such as the Distributed Virtual Router (DVR).
• Oded Nahum will present a technical introduction to PLUMgrid OpenStack Networking Suite and live demo.
The PLUMgrid Platform™ is the foundational technology that makes large scale, secure and high performance clouds possible. The PLUMgrid Platform is an open, extensible and comprehensive platform designed for the needs of next generation of cloud infrastructure. It is built on a distributed architecture that runs on x86 servers.
If you wish to sponsor the meetup with snacks and beverages, you are welcome to contact the organizer.
In any case, there will be coffee available.
