Simple Network Model:
Cisco OpenStack Edition uses Quantum to provide networking services. A number of network models are possible with appropriate modifications to the Puppet manifests supplied here. Cisco has tested a simple network model that can serve as a starting point for COE users. The simple network model uses a single "control" node on which most OpenStack control services are run and multiple compute nodes. Network segmentation is provided by Open vSwitch via GRE tunneling. Two physically or logically (VLAN) separated IP networks with an external router or layer-3 switch that provides connectivity between these two networks are deployed: one to provide connectivity for OpenStack API endpoints, Open vSwitch (OVS) GRE endpoints, and OpenStack/UCS management. The second network is used by OVS as the physical bridge interface and by Quantum as the public network. More information can be found in our installation instructions here:
