Open vSwitch (OVS) has been an important component of the most commonly used networking backend for OpenStack Neutron for several years. Both the OpenStack and Open vSwitch projects have evolved quite a bit. OVN (Open Virtual Network) is a new implementation of virtual networking from Open vSwitch that can be used by OpenStack, but also other projects such as Kubernetes.
This talks walks through the journey of OpenvSwitch in OpenStack and will cover the latest state of the OVN integration with OpenStack. We will discuss how OVN differs from the original OVS and OpenStack integration, as well as how to migrate an existing deployment to OVN.
Attendees will learn more about OVN (Open Virtual Network) and its integration with OpenStack.
