Hi!
In the beginning I whould like to say that I share the same questions: about cells, and about the lack of resources on this matter. Probably the "only" community member that gives details about its deployment of cells is CERN (others like Rackspace or NeCTAR do not give much).

According to the openstack architecture guide provided here, CERN has used fo:

  • Control: nova-api (that is deployed on api cell as well as compute cells) to launch VMs in local compute nodes
  • Networking: nova-network for networking (flat network) and a pre-registered MAC+IP list associated with each compute node
  • Storage: MySQL database server in each cell in an active/passive configuration with a NetApp for local storage and HA

I still have the same question as you do about neutron. It seems like no one has deployed cells using neutron yet.
