OVN SFC is a mini project work that involves Service Function Chaining of VNFs (VMs and Containers) on OVN - which is Distributed Control Plane solution on OVS.
This Project involves,
1. Understanding the challenges involved in SFC with OVN on VM, CN and VM + CN combined environments.
2. Automation scripts to realize SFC.
3. SFC in Three Environments: VM, Containers (CN), VM + CN Hybrid Environments.
4. Installer support - Any of APEX, JOID (Requires writing JuJu Charms).
Note: VM + VM based SFC is of first priority. CN + CN and VM + CN based SFC is of next level of focus.
- Ability to work and learn with minimal direction.
- Ability to work in upstream open source communities.
- General Linux skills.
- Strong Networking Knowledge.
- Knowledge on Containers and Networking.
- Knowledge of OpenFlow, OVN and OVS is required.
- Intermediate expertise in Python and shell programming.
- Jenkins or similar CI experience.
- Experience with configuration management tooling like Ansible or Puppet.
- Knowledge of APEX and JOID installers.
- Realizing SFC with VMs.
- Installation document.
- Installer scripts to Automation
- Integration to APEX, JOID installers.
- Unit/Functional test scripts to test the scenarios.
- Documentation for use cases, scenarios and installer help guides.
