Extending OpenStack – Advanced Networking Features and Deploying Multi-tier Applications


In this chapter, we learned about the design characteristics of OpenStack and the core components of such an ecosystem. We have also highlighted the design considerations around OpenStack and discussed the different possibilities of extending its functionalities. Now, we have a good starting point for the purpose of bringing the other incubated projects into production. You may notice that our first basic design covers most of the critical issues that one can face during the production. In addition, it is important to note that this first chapter might be considered as a main guideline for the next parts of this book. The next chapters will treat each concept and technology solution cited in this chapter in more detail by expanding the first basic design. Thus, the next chapter will take you from this generic architecture overview theory to a practical stage. Basically, you will learn how to deploy and expand what was designed by adopting an efficient infrastructure deployment approach—the DevOps style.
