Networking challenges in data center and cloud environments have received significant attention by industry and standards organizations. The data  center environment is dominated by the presence of software networking  components (vswitches) in server hypervisors, which may outnumber by an  order of magnitude the physical networking nodes. Bridging the gap  between  server based networking and existing network services is a significant challenge, since the ultimate goal is the design of end-to-end network  services. When it comes to advanced L3 services and interoperability  with  existing managed VPN services, existing solutions rely on static  routing  and/or centralized routing mechanisms that cannot meet the requirements  for resiliency and dynamic networking.

This talk will discuss a simple approach for this problem, which combines  traditional control plane and routing protocol approaches with the  flexibility of SDN architectures and Openflow. The mechanism relies on  maintaining an Openflow interface to hypervisors and utilizing existing  routing mechanisms when a scaled out data center deployment is  required to  federate a number of SDN controllers, or to interoperate with traditional  MPLS/VPN network services without the need for dedicated gateways or complex OSS integrations.

From a deployment perspective, we will discuss how this approach can be  easily integrated within the Openstack Quantum framework by requiring  minimal modifications. The solution also enables the federation and  interoperability of Openstack deployments at the network layer even  across  administrative domains as well as the extension of enterprise networks  into Quantum managed networks.

The presentation will conclude with a live demo of the solution.
