Icehouse, the 9th release of OpenStack, is out! Thanks to the 1200+ contributors. OpenStack Icehouse
We present the Openstack architecture that integrates Openflow based software defined networking (SDN) enabling automation and provisioning of network services spanning virtual switches (OVS) and physical switches. The talk will provide a deep understanding of the architecture components and the interactions. We will also discuss the unique benefits of SDN/openflow vis-a-vis Openstack, compare with existing Quantum supported networking architectures and share our deployment based experiences.
