A reliable etcd based messaging architecture for OpenStack

Join us to learn how we've architected etcd as a messaging framework within our OpenStack neutron ML2 driver. Our ML2 driver is called networking-vpp and it programs the Vector Packet Processing (VPP) platform within OpenStack. VPP is an open source production quality switch/router currently running in shipping products. Using our driver, you can easily use VPP within OpenStack to provide high-throughput, low-latency network services to your applications.

Specifically, you'll learn:

1. The software architecture of our driver

2. How we use Etcd within OpenStack Neutron to commmunicate network states data

3. The various networking features we currently support such as the ACLs, Layer3 Routing with HA,

    VLAN Port trunking and VXLAN GPE

4. How to deploy and use the ML2 driver in your environment

5. Security features such as message signing and RBAC.
