plumgrid director #36

Description

The PLUMgrid Director is the control plane of PLUMgrid ONS for OpenStack.
The configuration of the virtual network infrastructure for tenants is
done through the PLUMgrid Director. The PLUMgrid Director is typically
co-located on the OpenStack controller nodes.


About the PLUMgrid Platform

The PLUMgrid Platform is a software-only solution that provides a rich set of distributed network functions such as routers, switches, NAT, IPAM, DHCP, and it also supports security policies, end-to-end encryption, and third party Layer 4-7 service insertion.

About Plumgrid Director

The Director is the brain of the PLUMgrid Platform. It is responsible for coordinating and managing all the other platform components. Based on PLUMgrid's distributed system architecture, it provides built-in high availability and scaling. The Director allows you to create Virtual Domains on a per tenant or application basis.

Configuration

Example Config

plumgrid-director:
    plumgrid-virtual-ip: "192.168.100.250"
    install_sources: 'ppa:plumgrid-team/stable'
    install_keys: 'null'
neutron-api-plumgrid:
    install_sources: 'ppa:plumgrid-team/stable'
    install_keys: 'null'
    enable-metadata: True
neutron-api:
    neutron-plugin: "plumgrid"
    plumgrid-virtual-ip: "192.168.100.250"

Provide the virtual IP you want PLUMgrid GUI to be accessible.
