An Exploration of OpenStack Networking – Misconceptions, Assumptions and Expectations

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

How are problems with deploying Ceph, the management of IPs across regions and trouble with neutron node failover related? All of them stem from the underlying network - and many pitfalls await the inexperienced traveler when dealing with the beast that is OpenStack networking. We will present key lessons and best practices for networking in OpenStack clouds developed by the collaboration of Dell and Host Europe - a leading provider of managed hosting solutions across Europe. We'll take you on a tour across common network scaling misconceptions, silly vendor assumptions and user expectations. We share our views on and solutions for some of OpenStack's networking capabilities. You will learn to fear and loathe ARP and its cousin ND, and then there will be cake.
