I am a newbie and interested to know about open stack. And was trying to understand the Grizzly configuration and have few queries. (Grizzly Multinode conf)

Can anyone please let me know

  1. what does compute , controller and Networking node is for?

  2. In which node does the VM resides?

  3. Why is volume group created?

  4. Why there is a bridge between the compute and Networking node?

  5. If a VM needs internet access.. how is it routed?

  6. How does floating IP used to access internet?

  7. Is there any flexibility to write a security plug-in in KVM?

  8. What are the supporting API’s that I need to look for?

Deploying Openstack is very flexible. It can be deployed in a single VM to multiple baremetal systems (or VMs) depending on your need and the use case. Typically, compute node hosts workloads. You can configure openstack services to run in a single instance or spread them across different nodes to achieve desired high-availability, performance and security needs.
