This session is a 201 level technical deep dive on the VMware/Nicira Network Virtualization Platform (NVP). NVP is a virtual networking platform powering many OpenStack production environments as the networking engine behind Quantum. In this session we’ll explore the distributed systems architecture of the NVP Controller Cluster, the core functionality and behavior of NVP’s primary system components, and the logical networking devices and security tools NVP produces for consumption. High availability deployments, and packet flows for common scenarios will be discussed. And finally, we’ll take a look at how the physical network fabric can be architected for NVP deployments.
