One of Cisco’s key contributions within OpenStack has been the evolution and development of Neutron, the OpenStack Networking Service. Using Neutron’s plug-in model, Cisco has integrated a number of its products including Application-Centric Infrastructure (ACI), Network Function Virtualization, and Unified Fabric products to simplify the deployment of highly scalable, manageable, and secure networks.
This session will show how the addition of Cisco networking solutions can help orchestrate an entire OpenStack deployment, including networking, compute, and storage.
In this session, you’ll learn how:
- To increase the networking scalability of OpenStack with both hardware and software products including Nexus 3k/5k/6k/7k/9k, Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure, and Cisco N1Kv, CSR1Kv, AVS on Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology.
- How UCS Manager makes it easy to configure a bare-metal node for OpenStack pilot and production deployments with both blade and rack mount servers.
- How Cisco’s ACI architecture can be deployed and integrated with OpenStack.
