neutron api contrail #0

Supports: trusty
Add to new model

Description

Neutron is a virtual network service for Openstack, and a part of Netstack. Just like OpenStack Nova provides an API to dynamically request and configure virtual servers, Neutron provides an API to dynamically request and configure virtual networks. These networks connect "interfaces" from other OpenStack services (e.g., virtual NICs from Nova VMs). The Neutron API supports extensions to provide advanced network capabilities (e.g., QoS, ACLs, network monitoring, etc.) . This charm provides the OpenStack Neutron API OpenContrail agent, managing L2 connectivity on neutron-api services.


Overview

OpenContrail (www.opencontrail.org) is a fully featured Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution for private clouds. It supports high performance isolated tenant networks without requiring external hardware support. It provides a Neutron plugin to integrate with OpenStack.

This charm is designed to be used in conjunction with the rest of the OpenStack related charms in the charm store to virtualize the network that Nova Compute instances plug into.

This subordinate charm provides the Nova Compute vRouter component which contains the contrail-vrouter-agent service. Only OpenStack Icehouse or newer is supported.
