OpenStack networking supports several pluggable backends. Perhaps the most flexible and intriguing of these is the OpenVSwitch plugin, which is built atop the OpenFlow protocol. This talk describes the low-level details of the OpenFlow protocol, how it is implemented in both the software OpenVSwitch and in off-the-shelf physical switches, and how it is used by OpenStack Neutron to provide such features as tenant-isolated networks and overlapping subnets. Additionally, an OpenFlow sandbox development environment will be demonstrated, which provides a simple way to begin getting one's hands dirty this exciting technology.
