OVN is a virtual networking project built by the Open vSwitch community.
OpenStack can make use of OVN as its backend networking implementation
for Neutron. OVN and its Neutron integration are ready for use in OpenStack
This talk will cover the latest developments in the OVN project and the
latest release, part of OVS 2.7. Enhancements include better performance,
improved debugging capabilities, and more flexible L3 gateways.
We will take a look ahead the next set of things we expect to work on for
OVN, which includes logging for OVN ACLs (security groups), encrypted
tunnels, native DNS integration, and more.
We will also cover some of the performance comparison results of OVN
as compared with the original OVS support in Neutron (ML2/OVS). Finally,
we will discuss how to deploy OpenStack with OVN or migrate an existing
deployment from ML2/OVS to OVN.
Attendees will learn the latest developments about OVN and how they may be used for OpenStack Networking deployments.
