Please join our third and last session in our series on OpenStack Networking with VMware. In case you weren’t able to attend the first two theory sessions, please find below the recordings. You can register for the upcoming hands-on labs at Meetup.com. We will host that session both online via IRC and Google+ Hangout as well as physically in Budapest.
Interview with the presenter: Yves Fauser, System Engineer at VMware
Q: Can you give us a brief overview over the OpenStack Networking sessions?
A: In the 3 OpenStack Networking sessions we try to lay some foundational understanding of how network connectivity is provided to Instances in OpenStack. In the first session we give a general Overview of OpenStack Networking, and what the key drivers were to move networking from Nova into the Neutron project. We also speak about network virtualization in contrast to traditional networking, and talk about the general concepts of Neutron. In Session 2 we go much deeper, and we speak about the implementation details of Nova-networking and the Neutron OVS Plugin, as well as of the VMware NSX (aka as Nicira NVP) plugin. In the final Session 3 we will have a mixed on-site (Budapest) and remote session. Those participants who are able to attend on-site will have access to an OpenStack environment with OpenStack Neutron and with the OVS Plugin pre-installed. We will go over the steps how networking is configured and how to view the results of the configurations.
Q: Who is your target audience?
A: The target audience are OpenStack savvy engineers, who want to get a better understanding of OpenStack Networking.
Q: What prerequisites do participants have to meet?
A: A base knowledge of OpenStack, its projects and concepts is required. Beside this we don’t require networking knowledge of the participants.
Q: Can you tell us what VMware is offering arund OpenStack Networking?
A: VMware offers a solution to networking in OpenStack using programatic overlays - so network virtualization - with its NSX product line. VMware was a key contributor to the OpenStack Neutron project, and VMware NSX is used in production in some of the largest OpenStack production deployments today.
