CPlane is an extremely lightweight Neutron plugin for Openstack.
This charm provides the Cplane neutron plugin for OpenStack clouds.
CPLANE's software-only solution automates creation of WAN and LAN network services with a highly intelligent SDN platform. Through advanced discovery, modeling and service orchestration, CPLANE automates not only the low-level infrastructure configuration and management of data center and wide area networks, but also the higher-level, value-add functions such as network virtualization, routing, policy and QoS. CPLANE delivers network services faster and more reliably on existing network infrastructure. Since CPLANE is a software-only solution with no vendor-specific dependencies, it offers the added advantage of providing a path to new network architectures and technologies, and away from vendor lock-in.

This charm is subordinate to the neutron-api charm. It also requires the deployment of the neutron-openvswitch-cplane charm which is again a subordinate to nova-compute charm and the cplane-controller charm. It eliminates the need of the neutron-gateway charm as L3 routing agent since this is now handled by the compute tier.
The neutron-api-cplane charm has several core functions:
Instruction for deploying the CPlane openstack bundle is as follows:
Note: This bundle will install some components of Openstack as well as CPlane charms.
juju deploy cplane_openstack.yaml
cplane-controller_ip: Configures the CPlane-controller node IP, but this value will be overwritten if a cplane-controller charm is deployed.
cplane-controller_port: Configures the CPlane-controller node PORT, again this value will be overwritten if a cplane-controller charm is
