OVN: Scaleable Virtual Networking For Open vSwitch - Kyle Mestery, IBM & Justin Pettit, VMware

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

OVN is a new network virtualization project that brings virtual networking to the Open vSwitch user community. OVN includes logical switches and routers, security groups, and L2/L3/L4 ACLs, implemented on top of a tunnel-based overlay network. For physical-logical network integration, OVN implements software gateways, as well as supports hardware gateways from a variety of vendors.

In this talk, we will walk through the current status of the OVN project, including the upcoming first release planned for the fall. We'll also talk about the scale Cloud providers are utilizing OVN at. And we'll highlight the operational aspects of running a Cloud with OVN as the virtual networking layer.
