You will learn how to manage the OpenStack networking service (Neutron) with network functions virtualization (NFV) to enhance network performance. You will configure distributed virtual routers (DVR), Open vSwitch with Data Plane Development Kit (OVS-DPDK) datapath, and IPv6 networking in OpenStack. You will also deploy software-defined networking (SDN) with OpenDaylight (ODL).
Course content summary
- Network functions virtualization (NFV)
- Distributed virtual router (DVR)
- Open vSwitch with Data Plane Development Kit (OVS-DPDK) datapath
- IPv6 networking
- Single-root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV)*
- Software-defined networking (SDN) with OpenDaylight (ODL)
- VLAN, VXLAN, and GRE networks
*SR-IOV is covered in the course as a lecture and a video. The specification is not covered as a hands-on exercise because it requires special hardware.
