Suresh Ramamurthy created CLOUDSTACK-6845:
---------------------------------------------

             Summary: Nuage VSP Network Plugin
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-6845
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-6845
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: New Feature
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Network Controller
         Environment: Nuage VSP Network Plugin supports XenServer hypervisor supported by
CloudStack
            Reporter: Suresh Ramamurthy
            Assignee: Suresh Ramamurthy
             Fix For: 4.5.0


The Nuage NetworksTM Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) is a Software-Defined Networking
(SDN) solution that virtualizes any datacenter (DC) network infrastructure and automatically
establishes connectivity between compute resources upon their creation. The Nuage Networks
VSP enables the deployment of massively scalable cloud-based services with the agility and
performance demanded by highly dynamic application environments. It deploys the full range
of L2-L4 networking services on a per-tenant or per-application basis using overlay technologies.

NuageVsp networking plugin will bring the Nuage VSP network virtualization technology to CloudStack.All
the network isolation and routing is handled by the Nuage SDN solution. Routing of the packets
happen at hypervisor itself. Virtual Router is not used for routing the packets thus the current
issue of the Virtual Router being the bottleneck is avoided. The Virtual Router VM is spawned
only for Password reset functionality. The Nuage solution also helps significantly improve
the agility and scale of a CS deployment as compared to a Virtual Router based deployment

NuageVsp plugin plans to support the following network model / service combinations:
	1. Advanced Isolated network mode:
               DHCP
               Static NAT
               Source NAT
               Firewall
        2. VPC network mode:
               DHCP
               Static NAT
               Source NAT
               Network ACL

This proposal for this feature was discussed in dev@cloudstack.apache.org mailing list
