NAS4free & openvswitch

#1

Post by titi_Nas4free »

Hi,

Has someone ever expenrienced openvswitch to manage VMs network ?
I've tried it on centOS and it works fine. How about Nas4free ?

The packages are available :

Code: Select all

 nas4free: /mnt# pkg install openvswitch
Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue...
Fetching meta.txz: 100%    944 B   0.9kB/s    00:01
Fetching packagesite.txz: 100%    5 MiB   1.1MB/s    00:05
Processing entries: 100%
FreeBSD repository update completed. 24820 packages processed.
The following 6 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):

New packages to be INSTALLED:
        openvswitch: 2.3.2_1
        python27: 2.7.11
        libffi: 3.2.1
        indexinfo: 0.2.4
        gettext-runtime: 0.19.6
        perl5: 5.20.3_8

The process will require 123 MiB more space.
25 MiB to be downloaded.

Proceed with this action? [y/N]: n
But is it something working on Nas4free ?

I'd like to see such an implementation, too. It would be very useful to integrate nas4free with an OpenStack deployment for backup purposes.

You mean putting each tenant into a dedicated VLAN ?

If "tenant" = VM, then yes.

I installed centOS and Nas4free in a VM + the other VMs.
Things have worked fine so far, even better than before for Nas4Free, as the host has very good hardware and the computer that was dedicated to N4F was not very good.

Thanks to Nas4Free for being that stable.

I was thinking about vm=client with one or more VM.

Anyway, your implementation makes use of OVS to effectively segregate your traffic between n4f and your LAN. Pretty nice, but I wonder if GRE tunnels aren't better because with VLAN you need to set up membership on each side but not with GRE.
