Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is one of the major driving factors in the adoption of OpenStack in the Service Provider industry. In this session, you will learn how using the integration of Cisco ACI with OpenStack makes it simple to deploy advanced NFV features and increases visibility with a tight underlay and overlay integration.
ACI offers a solution for VNF service chaining and BGP peering with high performance, DPDK-based virtual switching and seamless automation. In this session, we will cover:
- An introduction to OpenStack and ACI Integration
- NFV features of the ACI Neutron Plugin
- High performance HW Load Balancing to OpenStack VNFs through BGP ECMP
- Deployment of service chaining using Neutron SFC API - a demo is included
