Support for multivendor multi-instance L3-L7 physical and virtual network resources
This blueprint proposes the addition to OpenStack of a framework for dynamic network resource management (DNRM). This framework includes a new OpenStack resource management and provisioning service, a refactored scheme for Neutron API extensions, a policy-based resource allocation system, and dynamic mapping of resources to plugins. It is intended to address a number of use cases, including multivendor environments, policy-based resource scheduling, and virtual appliance provisioning. We are proposing this as a single blueprint in order to create an efficiently integrated implementation.
Nov-20-2015(armax): If someone is interested in pursuing it, this must be re-submitted according to guidelines defined in .
This is being submitted now for discussion in Hong Kong. We also plan to demonstrate a proof-of-concept at the summit. Target for this work is Icehouse.
This blueprint overlaps with the following later blueprint:
We need to coordinate the discussions.
