According to Gartner’s Andrew Lerner, many of the networking practitioners running mainstream corporate networks have only surface-level knowledge of OpenStack as evidenced in his recent blog. To assist networkers to understand Openstack, we created an easy white-board style video illustration of OpenStack for beginners with specific use-cases, featuring networking in a Cisco ACI context. Lucien Avramov from Cisco’s Insieme Business Unit, a lead Technical Marketing Engineer and an OpenStack evangelist gleefully signed up to do the Videos. In this blog, I am pleased to present highlights of the videos.
Lucien rightfully starts his white-board Videos with one that discusses the basics, namely “What is OpenStack and Networking”.
This video covers OpenStack and Networking. Lucien does a deep-dive into the Neutron project and explains Neutron basics and its interaction with the physical and virtual networks of a Data Center.

The last video covers the benefits of ACI with OpenStack. In this Video Lucien describes the workflow between ACI and OpenStack. You will learn the benefits of ACI with OpenStack including the ACI policy model, physical and virtual environment integration, hardware tunnels, service chaining and telemetry such as health scores, troubleshooting and visibility.
