There's a lot of talk now about VMware integrating with OpenStack now.
I've noticed that Nova network service is working with VMware's standard and vDS.
Deploying a full OpenStack instance is not currently viable in our environment, but we would like to use whatever technology they are for Standard vSwitch automation. I can't find any way to do this with libvirt other than using Open vSwitch which is not ideal for our existing setups.
Currently we're controlling vSphere standard network switches using VMware's virtual machine assistant (vMA) but would like to move to a technology that is more platform independent.
So I was wondering if anyone knows what tool/API Nova is using to automate VMware's vSwitches. Does anyone have an idea?
