OpenStack Neutron (formerly Quantum) is a project to provide "networking as a service" for OpenStack. Neutron provides a rich set of logical constructs to develop a full featured virtual network deployment. We will cover the basics of Neutron and provide a preview of the new features available in the upcoming Havana release.
This talk is directed at an audience with a basic familiarity of networking. This talk will include a basic tour of Neutron’s architecture and how Neutron is used to create some common network configurations. We discuss the Open Source technology options used to implement Neutron and close with a discussion of the higher level services that will be available for deployers and tenants in Havana due in October 2013.
