Subject Third party VR / L2 support
Date Mon, 01 Jun 2015 12:25:56 GMT
Hi Sebastien,

Thank you for publishing the roadmap.

> Replace VR with h/w (srx, asa etc)

A question for all - What are the implications of expanding this feature
to support s/w appliances, such as the ASA/CSR 1000V ?

This is something that I have been implementing manually to date because:

> Improve VR, VR agent, API for VR   :)

It involves a little bit of 'creative networking' in order to suppress the
CS virtual router. Any improvements in this area would be very useful.
Even a QuickCloudNoServices-like offering for isolated networks would be
great. I¹m aware that this can be created manually, but I¹m not convinced
that this is a supported configuration.

Pushing this concept further, I¹d like to see support for Layer 2 isolated
networks. I use these for running virtual L2 devices under CS simply by
creating dummy IP address ranges and ignoring them. Again, I have to
suppress the VR, because it¹s not needed at L2.

I¹ve been doing a fair bit to push the limits of networking in CloudStack
over the last year using just VLANs and the standard API calls . I¹m happy
to answer any questions anyone may have.

Best regards,


Christian Lafferty
