I think its sufficient to say OVS is a 'real' modern switch while plain
ol' linux bridge is not (so much any more). Of curse, maybe implementing
other things like macvtap and / or SR-IOV achieves just the same thing
(at least for me, as I then mange vlans/trunks and QoS, Spanning Tree
ect. on my switches).
I know you can point on OpenStack integration because you get those
features for 'free' (see Ceph). But what about users like me who do not
wish / can / should implement the whole OpenStack but rather want to run
I think this might not be a desirable way to add / modernize features as
it creates a huge overhead (at least in my use case, medium business. I
did this once for Glance 'just' to get a way to more easily handle
import / export of image files, now I need to implement Neutron 'just'
to get OVS?).
Don't get me wrong - OpenStack integration is a wonderful thing witch
leaves room for expansion - later on.
We did a lot of work in VDSM to make it more pluggable. part of it was
to extract the LB specific implementation to a configurator which
enables adding support to OVS. Take a look at -
We did not implement the OVS configurator, but it's an option we should
It would help if you can specify concrete work that you are doing with
OVS, is it just a general, traditional work or are you using the flows
in OVS, other?
