Toward Fog/Edge deployments - Evaluating OpenStack WANwide with EnOS (INRIA, EN)
Latency is a critical requirement for Internet Of Things and NFV/SDN applications that favors a more distributed Cloud Computing model deployed at the Edge. This model does not cope with the traditional vision that has been driving the development of OpenStack. Hence, the question of using OpenStack to operate Fog, Edge and NFV infrastructures is often debated due to potential performance/scalability issues. Although some efforts such as OpenStack multiple regions and Cells may allow operators to administrate these new infrastructures, there are no studies that evaluate how OpenStack will behave in such a massively distributed context.

This talk presents results of a study focusing on the impact of Wide Area Network communications on real OpenStack deployments. To this aim, we developed the Enos framework[1][2] to achieve reproducible performance experiments while doing traffic shaping. Experiments of this talk have been done over the Grid'5000 and Chameleon testbeds.

Integration of own network solutions in OpenStack Neutron (OVH, EN)
OpenStack Neutron is very easy to extend with own drivers and plugins. It allows to integrate own networking solutions with Neutron and extend its functionalities. The OVH vRack (the virtual rack) technology enables your OVH services to be connected, isolated or spread across one or multiple private secure networks within all OVH data centers.

In this presentation we want to show how to extend Neutron API and integrate own functionalities with it. We want to demonstrate it by showing how we integrate our "vRack" technology with Neutron ML2 plugin and how we provide Neutron tenant networks based on this technology to our customers.

Boosting your OpenStack with Distributed SFC (Huawei, EN)
Service Function Chaining is a mechanism for policy based forwarding in the cloud networking apparatus. It allows overriding destination based forwarding, and enables passing a packet through specific points in the virtual cloud. Can it be fully distributed across your cloud? With Dragonflow it can.

Dragonflow is an official OpenStack project. It is an open, pluggable and fully distributed SDN controller, that implements Neutron API. In Pike we introduced SFC support in Dragonflow.

This talk will cover:
* How Dragonflow can enable SFC environment in an OpenStack deployment.
* The new SFC sub-system, and how each local controller becomes a fully capable SFC forwarder, eliminating any centralized forwarding.
* The pluggable backend drivers, that can be easily extended to work with different types of topologies and protocols.
