Extensible Neutron Service Function Chaining - Here It Comes

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

Service chaining allows dynamic steering of traffic from source, through a sequence of service function devices (physical or virtual), to destination. In current Data Center, the deployment of service chain for a tenant's flow is through static, complex, and rigid configurations and it usually takes days or weeks to deploy it. To reduce the OPEX and increase agility, automatic setup of service chaining is reuqired. 

Service Function Chaining (SFC) has long been a strongly requested feature in Neutron, and with the advent of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) as a major use case for OpenStack, that demand has only grown stronger. The wait for such feature is finally over in Liberty.

To address the needs, Service Chain feature is currently being developed as part of the Neutron Project. The community had gotten together and are developing a standard-based, vendor-neutral SFC functionality in Neutron using OVS as a reference driver implementation. In this talk we will give an introduction on the service function chaining project and its roadmap.

Attendees of this session will get to know:

  1. Architecture Design, APIs, and Data Models of the Solution

  2. Extensibility, Scalability, and Performance Consideration

  3. Current Project Status: Where are we now?

  4. Project Roadmap
