Library for VM-based service insertion (Edgar) Provide a library to insert "In-Path" and "Out-of-band" layer 2 & Layer 3 network services such as firewalls, LB, Routers or WAAS. There is no need for new APIs at this moment because the insertion of the services will be calling current APIs. This is an extra functionality for SPs who will be able to instantiate services as VMs in the network with or without L3 configuration. Services-Insertion using non-core Quantum API Extensions (danwent) Basic idea is how someone can use Quantum API extensions to provide a service that builds on top of the existing capabilities of the plugin. The idea is that you run the core plugin, but you can also run one or more services, which are essentially python modules that are loaded Quantum startup and that register API extensions that do not conflict with the core Quantum APIs (e.g., a module might introduce a new /load-balancers URL space). The logical network entities exposed by the services can use admin interfaces to associate interfaces (e.g., load balancer interfaces) into Quantum network ports. This generic service can be written in a way that it is compatible with multiple plugins, and can be enabled independently of any plugin. (Session lead is Edgar Magana Perdomo)
