Introduction to Neutron

I recently gave an internal Red Hat talk entitled: Introduction to Neutron. It is a high-level, concepts oriented talk.

In it I talk about:

  • Why Neutron?
  • An example of network virtualization
  • Ports, networks and subnets
  • External, provider and tenant networks
  • L3 model – Internal and external subnets, routers, NAT and floating IPs
  • An overview of the different Neutron components
  • Nova <–> Neutron interaction when creating a VM
  • Explanation of the core plugin concept
  • Brief rundown of the service plugins (VPN, Load balancing and Firewalls)

Here’s the PDF.

And the video:
