Subnet Pools and Pluggable External IP Management in OpenStack Kilo

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In Juno and before, the End User needed to know the specific subnet CIDR at the time of allocation. This made it difficult to automate the allocation of subnets - especially for external or other routable subnets. In OpenStack's Kilo, Neutron adds Subnet Pools, allowing the Operator to define a network space from which tenants can automatically allocate smaller subnets, for both internal and external networks.


In addition, the Operator can now plug-in an external IPAM system to provide subnet and IP address allocation, enabling integration with existing provisioning systems and centralized control of addressing throughout the organization.


In this session, you will:

  • Learn the Kilo IPAM abstraction data model: IPAM drivers, subnet pools, subnet and address requests

  • Discovery how to create and manage subnet pools, and their uses cases for subnet allocation

  • Compare and contrast Neutron's built-in IPAM driver with those integrating with 3rd party IPAM systems
