Providing users with programmatic control of their infrastructure has always been one of the primary value propositions of the Rackspace Cloud. The ability to deploy and manage a wide array of cloud resources with a few lines of code has brought new levels of automated efficiency to the IT industry and revolutionized how we think about managing our applications and workloads.
At OpenStack Summit Paris, Neutron networking drew a great deal of attention. From several well-attended presentations to daily book signings; there was a buzz around Neutron throughout the Summit.
Among the OpenStack projects getting the most attention here at the OpenStack Summit Paris is the Neutron networking project.
So after following the first three posts, we now have a Rackspace Private Cloud powered by OpenStack running with two Controllers (HA) and three Computes. So now what? Well the first thing we need to do is get our hands dirty with the OpenStack Networking component, Neutron, and create a network that our instances can be spun up on. For the home lab, I have dumb unmanaged switches – and I take advantage of that by creating a Flat Network that allows my instances access out through my home LAN on the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet.
