Connecting the Dots with Neutron: Unifying Network Virtualization Between Containers and VMs

Neutron has established a simple, and now broadly accepted, northbound API for network virtualization. In this talk, we will explore the use of Neutron for supporting multi-host and multi-tenant networking for Docker containers as well as OpenStack VMs. In particular, we use the new Docker plugin architecture along with the recently announced networking framework, libnetwork. We show how the libnetwork remote driver can be used to utilize Neutron as the networking backend and will discuss pros and cons of using Neutron in this role.

We will discuss performance comparisons between the use of Neutron with that of the built-in overlay driver, as well as other network drivers being developed for Docker. This talk will give attendees a clear picture of how Neutron can be the unifying networking engine for VMs and containers.
