Subject [jira] [Commented] (LIBCLOUD-519) Standard API for networking
Date Mon, 10 Nov 2014 09:35:33 GMT


Tomaz Muraus commented on LIBCLOUD-519:

[~Mariem] It's still slightly early for GSoC 2015 (I don't know yet if we will participate
- it depends on the availability of the mentors), but to get a better idea of what this task
encompasses, you can have a look at this pull request -

In this pull request most of the basic functionality has been implemented, but it still needs
a discussion and agreement on the base API on the mailing list and a bunch of polishing (tests,
driver for AWS, docs, etc.).

> New standard API (e.g. libcloud.networking) for "Networking as a Service" for handling
services such as OpenStack Neutron / Quantum.
> Ideally there should also be some integration with the compute API. For example, compute
driver would instantiate a networking driver and use it to handle all the networking operations.
> Good example of this is OpenStack driver. Currently all the networking API is handled
using Nova networking, but once we have a new networking API, we could make this pluggable
meaning user could select which API to use (nova networking / neutron networking) when instantiating
a driver.
