RDO Newton with nuage

Originally posted on scotts tech blog:
In this post we’ll learn how to install OpenStack RDO (Newton) and integrate it with nuage. As a perquisite the Nuage VCS components must have already been installed and setup. The only requirements between the OpenStack controller and the VSD is that the root (or whatever user you plan to utilize for API access between the OpenStack Contoller and… Continue reading RDO Newton with nuage

OpenStack liberty- Remove elements like duplicated hypervisors or unwanted ports

When your are experimenting with openstack, It’s usual have failures. This post shows how to remove these unwanted ports or duplicated compute nodes. Removing Duplicated Compute Nodes I’ve used this trick several times. Cause my Nested OpenStack Nuage lab (and my several installations). I had to remove duplicated nova computes using this procedure. First, let’s check out our hypervisors. [root@ocs01 ~]# . keystonerc_admin [root@ocs01 ~(keystone_admin)]# nova … Continue reading OpenStack liberty- Remove elements like duplicated hypervisors or unwanted ports

Building a Nuage/PackStack Lab at home Part 3

Update – August 1st, 2016: I’ve made an update thanks to @karkull feedback. some changes to neutron.cfg and nova.cfg files. I’ve made important changes the way I was presenting the info over this post. Hi there, Through this post, I will install nested packstack liberty with a controller/network node and a nova compute node. Then, I will install the Nuage plugin for neutron and the metadata, heat, horizon … Continue reading Building a Nuage/PackStack Lab at home Part 3

Building a Nuage/OpenStack demo at home – Part1

update 05/05/2016: I’ve done some important changes over the next post. Like switching desvtack to packstack. Anyway, you are invited to check out both and create your own opinion. Also, I’ve changed jumpbox from ubuntu to Centos 7. I will update on the next posts some of my notes here. Next posts will take you to a step-by-step guide to create you on-premises Proof of Concept … Continue reading Building a Nuage/OpenStack demo at home – Part1

Sentinel.la | LATAM startups play global | OpenStack Monitoring & Healthcheck

Sentinel.la is not just another startup supported on the open source community mattress. It’s a live proof that LATAM’s talent is playing global. Founders Memo and Paco have been closed to OpenStack foundation over the last four years. They have a HUGE experience operating it. Sentinel.la has launched its beta last week. You would identify the value of the solution just seeing their posts and … Continue reading Sentinel.la | LATAM startups play global | OpenStack Monitoring & Healthcheck

Some Nuage Labs’ resources for NUTS

Hi there. I am just taking some tools over here, which I am normally using with Nuage’s labs (template: “Nuage VSP 3.2R4 with Red Hat OSP7 – blank”). More of these are being tested at Nuts ( A limited access labs we normally use to amaze customers). However, you can use them and modify them for your own purpose. Use these scripts at your own risk. If you … Continue reading Some Nuage Labs’ resources for NUTS

Nuage Networks: Agility relies on the overlay

Cell phones are keeping network configurations among different zones. No matters where you are, or what antennas, routers or switches your data/voice is being transferred through; you will be connected to your loved ones for sure. Your private cloud is distributed among different spots. Instances are moving among clusters or facilities driven by power/hardware failures, performance or proximity. Wouldn’t it be cool if instances’ network settings and rules could be taken wherever … Continue reading Nuage Networks: Agility relies on the overlay

OpenDayLight focuses on OpenStack Networks and Lithium is the proof

Technical Level: Medium OpenStack Knowledge: Medium (Architect) OpenDayLight Knowledge: Fundamentals The Universal OpenStack adoption has changed the way to develop new datacenter’s services. Questions like: How much storage capacity and bandwidth does this new App need? are being addressed by an emerging role of Cloud Architects. IT Storage/Network Architects, who used to care of it App by App, are facing orchestration challenges as their most important priority now. In other words, how … Continue reading OpenDayLight focuses on OpenStack Networks and Lithium is the proof

#Neutron and @AristaNetworks – Routing and #VXLAN encapsulation at wire speed

Before going further, I strongly suggest to read There’s real magic behind OpenStack neutron to understand in more details what is happening between Nova instances, OpenVSwitch and Neutron since IceHouse. We’ll take a walk on Neutron (Kilo release) and Arista Network L2 drivers and L3 plug-in throughout this post. Most of the networks orchestration changes between IceHouse, Juno and Kilo have been taken place into L2 drivers, stability, performance and … Continue reading #Neutron and @AristaNetworks – Routing and #VXLAN encapsulation at wire speed

#OpenStack Kilo/Juno – L3 High Availability VRRP for #Neutron

Started to work with Neutron since IceHouse. There was some important HA and scalability issues in neutron at that time. HA problems were mostly related to Routers and DNSMASQ resources. Neutron used to be hard to scale. An important workaround was to implement networks with much memory capacity. It makes you to spend more, but it’s better than a failure that can cost more. don’t … Continue reading #OpenStack Kilo/Juno – L3 High Availability VRRP for #Neutron
