HP Helion is the cloud platform HP is bringing to Enterprise for private cloud and used by HP to build their Helion public cloud. In this show, recorded at HP Discover as part of our show coverege, we talk about Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) for OpenStack that uses OpenFlow and OVSDB as a basis for implementing features in the physical network in OpenStack and Helion.
Thanks to HP for sponsoring Packet Pushers to cover the Discover Conference in Barcelona.
- Helion is a commercial distribution of OpenStack in a similar way to linux distributions
- HP has Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) for OpenStack that uses OpenFlow and OVSDB as a basis for implementing features in the physical network.
- OpenStack offers customers an standardised and open way of hosting virtual machines and orchestrating the networking, storage and compute resources.
- Neutron is the project within OpenStack that does networking today with over 150 developers.
- Neutron is the current networking solution which is simple VLAN tagging and configuration using programmatic interfaces from OpenStack.
- But Neutron doesn’t actually configure the underlying network but offers a plugin architecture for other modules to provide extended network functions.
