Description

The current shift from IaaS-based node-by-node management towards Platform-as-a-Service deployments across multiple cloud sites requires a solution for networking -- a solution that, in essence, makes all components forming a platform deployment visible to each other, while maintaining outward privacy and tenant isolation in individual sites. This need was originally addressed in the INDIGO Project and the integration now continues in DEEP. The Virtual Router is a platform-agnostic appliance that is intended to provide routing between isolated islands of a platform that is deployed across multiple cloud sites. The Virtual Router is designed for simple programmatic deployment, so that it can be deployed in each target island by automated platform management tools. The concept of the Virtual Router is modular, and the current version uses Ansible for deployment and configuration, and OpenVPN as the primary routing and virtual networking technology. This poster explains the basic architecture of the virtual router, the intended topology, and integration into a real-world platform orchestration stack.
