OpenStack is awesome, but it cannot function without capable storage systems and powerful networking. This presentation puts an accent on the networking side of things: You will see how to create a Layer-3-based Leaf-Spine networking architecture that scales.
Mellanox 100GbE hardware is used to facilitate the physical link, and Midonet is used for Software-Defined Networking on the OpenStack Layer.
If you are looking into networking design for OpenStack, don’t miss this!
