Astara (Akanda Rug)
Astara is a service with an open plugin architecture that manages Neutron advanced services such as routers and load balancers within an OpenStack environment.
Astara is an open source network virtualization platform built by OpenStack operators for real OpenStack clouds. Originally developed by DreamHost for their OpenStack-based public cloud, DreamCompute, Astara eliminates the need for complex SDN controllers, overlays, and multiple plugins by providing a simple integrated networking stack (routing, firewall, and load balancing via a virtual Service VM) for connecting and securing multi-tenant OpenStack environments.
The code for the Astara project lives in several separate repositories to ease packaging and management:
|Categories||Networking > Control & Management Software > NMS, EMS, OSS, BSS, Management and Orchestration|
