Network Architecture for OpenStack (OSNA)

OpenStack networking has matured rapidly in the past year with the advent of Neutron, which is still one of the most poorly understood OpenStack components.In this half-day, hands-on module, we’ll take Neutron apart and help you answer some key architectural questions—starting with, why do I actually need it? We’ll look at the capabilities of Neutron, its current limitations, and how third-party vendors are leveraging the Neutron framework to provide advanced, next-gen networking services
