The OpenStack integration with our Software Defined Fabric™


Welcome to this brief video of providing
a high-level overview of some key areas supported by the Kaloom™ Software Defined
Fabric™ simply known as SDF and its integration with OpenStack. A user can
log into a networking fabric via the fabric manager tool to view the network
topology and be presented with details and the ability to edit the attributes
of the nodes within the fabric the user can then view a listing of the virtual
fabrics within the fabric and by clicking on the add virtual fabric
button proceed to the creation of a vFabric in the following segments the
assigning of termination points from hosts application servers to a given vFabric will be shown note that the application servers shown are installed
either with the open vSwitch or the KVS the Kaloom’s optimized virtual switch and a service have ML to drivers installed to interface with an open
stack management system in the network services screen the user can view a list
of physical termination points previously assigned on the created
vFabric in this sequence we see a virtual switch that has been previously created
for the purposes of interconnecting the termination points on hosts within the vFabric as well we see a KVS enabled application server as an enhanced
feature of the SDF the KVS frees up resources from application servers and
offloads the virtual switching functionality delivering improved
latency and throughput performance the next sequence will provide a high-level
overview regarding the creation of a network via the OpenStack management
service used to manage and access the underlying compute resources for such
tasks as handling scheduling creating and deleting within the hypervisor
summary screen we see a summary of the compute nodes which will host virtual
machines to be created in a subsequent step by selecting the network’s menu
item and the create network button the user can create a new network and an
associated subnet by filling in the descriptor information in this case a
network called Kaloom Net1 and selecting the
check box for the subnet clicking the next button will show the newly created
network one can also observe ones own fabric manager the fabric
topology of newly created networks that have been created via OpenStack the user
can view via the OpenStack CLI a catalog of the various networks subnets and
virtual machines under OpenStack management once again users can view the
network topology either via the KFM or the OpenStack client in this sequence we
graphically show the attachment of virtual machines on client-server hosts
to a layer 2 network within the vFabric we have previously created termination
points packets can now be sent between the virtual machines that have been
installed with either OBS or KVS in the connected network via the OpenStack
service as well users can obtain performance monitoring
statistics for transmit and receive packets collected for the termination
points of a given network for more information please visit: www.kaloom.com
