> BVS is one of the SDN applications available for the BigSwitch network controller. BVS
application provides network virtualization, manages isolated and virtual networks on top
of the underlying physical and virtual switch infrastructure. These virtual networks correspond
directly to the groups of VMs, servers, and other devices that need their own secure connectivity.
The virtual networks are programmed into the physical and/or virtual switches without having
to separately configure individual network devices.
> The proposed CloudStack networking plugin will bring the OpenFlow-based standard network
virtualization technology to CloudStack.
> There won't be any change to the existing CloudStack workflow. In a typical deployment,
all OpenFlow-enabled physical and virtual switches and other network resources are configured
to be managed by the BigSwitch controller(s). When a guest network is created, the plugin
will create a corresponding virtual network in the BVS  When a guest VM is launched, the VM
is automatically assigned to its configured guest network(s). The BVS application will provide
network isolation and connectivities among VMs.
