Open vSwitch and the Intelligent Edge

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

Open vSwitch is the default software switch used by OpenStack Neutron. In this talk, we will discuss advanced operations that can be achieved due to its location at the edge of the network. With its unique position, it has greater context and the ability to enforce policies early. We will explore the effects on networking and security, and dive into specific examples that can be best handled with an intelligent edge.

  • Inferring state from the edge
  • Implementing efficient security policies
  • Elephant flow detection and handling
