Hi,

Can anyone one detail the features of OpenContrail over neutron networking ? i.e., Why we need to integrate contrail with openstack ? does it provide any extra features than neutron ? I have gone through opencontrail documents but I'm not clear about what I read. So please help me with bullet listing answers.

Thanks in advance.

OpenContrail is a SDN solution which offers additional networking features such as vDNS, IPAM and security ACL on both subnets and individual VM levels. It has a centralized controller serving as control plane and a distributed virtual router serving as forwarding/data plane. OpenContrail vrouter operates on each hypervisor abd VM is attached to the vRouter by VRF (virtual Forward Routing). The forwarding plane supports MPLS over GRE, VXLAN, L2/3 unicase and L3 Multicase for interconnection between virtual and physical networks. This http://www.opencontrail.org/opencontrail-architecture-documentation/#section1 (page) has excellent architecture overview for OpenContrail.

Basically the Contrail is to replace the Neutron in Openstack. Contrail is highly scalabe where the Openstack-Neutron will panic. Following video provides a glance of networking scalability using Contrail. Have a look.
