PLUMgrid Neutron Plugin enables PLUMgrid Open Networking Suite, which is a secure, comprehensive and open software solution that delivers terabits of performance and scales across tens of thousands of workloads. The product suite provides highly automated workflows that significantly reduce the deployment time of OpenStack clouds, enables users to create private Virtual Domains™ for their projects and is compatible with the leading OpenStack distributions.
