Neutron Service Model of Red Hat OpenStack

Neutron Service Model of Red Hat OpenStack

Figure 1-2 shows the logical network planes of the OpenStack.

  1. Management plane: used for internal communication between OpenStack components.
  2. Guest plane: used for data communication between VMs.
  3. External plane: provides Internet access for VMs.
  4. API plane: used for users to access the cloud platform through the northbound interface.

In terms of management, the OpenStack defines two logical objects: domain and project. A domain contains multiple projects that are managed by one system administrator and can be mapped to a company, an organization, or a department. A project defines the combination of available computing, network, and storage resources and can be mapped to an organization, a department, or a project. The OpenStack Neutron defines a service module with routers, networks, subnets, and ports, as shown in Figure 1-3.

Figure 1-3 Elements in a domain, project, and Neutron
  • Router: implements L3 access between different networks. Each router can manage multiple networks. The open-source router provides the FWaaS and VPNaaS functions.
  • Network: defines an L2 broadcast domain, which is isolated through VLAN or VXLAN. Each network can be associated with multiple subnets (IPv4&IPv6 dual stack).
  • Subnet: defines an IP address segment and the corresponding gateway. Each subnet is associated with a network.
  • Port: functions as a logical object for binding a VM or BM to a network. The object has the MAC address and IP address.
