This document contains instructions for installing and configuring the PLUMgrid plugin for Fuel.
In order to use the PLUMgrid ONS Virtual Network Infrastructure for a Mirantis OpenStack Cloud.

Key terms, acronyms and abbreviations

Given below are some commonly used terms across this document:

| PLUMgrid ONS | PLUMgrid Open Networking Suite (ONS) is a comprehensive software |
| | suite that provides a virtual network infrastructure based on |
| | IO Visor technology. |
| VNI | Virtual Network Infrastructure |
| Virtual Domain | A Virtual Domain is a logical data center. It can be created on |
| | demand to provide all the networking services (e.g. Routers, |
| | Switches, IPAM, DHCP, NAT, etc.) necessary to build a vitrual |
| | network for a tenant in OpenStack. Typically, each OpenStack |
| | tenant will map to a unique Virtual Domain in the PLUMgrid. |
| Zone | Represents the physical deployment of PLUMgrid ONS. A Zone is |
| | primarily a collection of Edges & Gateways that are dependent on |
| | the same cluster of Directors in a single physical location. A |
| | data center can have multiple Zones. |
| Director | The control plane of PLUMgrid ONS. The configuration of the VNI |
| | for tenants is done through the Director. The PLUMgrid Directors |
| | are typically deployed in a cluster of three nodes to provide high|
| | availability and scale. Directors are co-located on the OpenStack |
| | Controller nodes. |
| Edge | An OpenStack Compute node running PLUMgrid IO Visor as a kernel |
| | module. It provides the data plane and network connectivity for |
| | the VMs of OpenStack tenants. Communication for VMs between Edges |
| | is enabled by creating overlay tunnels using VXLAN encapsulation |
| Gateway | Provides connectivity from virtual fabric (VXLAN based) to |
| | external IP networks (such as for internet access). Gateway(s) |
| | can be deployed as a pair in Active/Active mode for load balancing|
| | of traffic and high availability of external connectivity. |
| LCM | The Life Cycle Manager is a VM that is used to host the necessary |
| | PLUMgrid packages needed to install (or update) a PLUMgrid Zone. |

The figure below depicts how all these components fit in a PLUMgrid Zone.

The PLUMgrid plugin for Fuel provides the capability to use PLUMgrid ONS for Mirantis OpenStack as the entire networking backend.
It is configured through the Fuel UI.

PLUMgrid Open Networking Suite (ONS) is a comprehensive software suite that provides terabits of scale out performance, production
grade resiliency, and secure multi-tenancy for hybrid data centers. Built on PLUMgrid Platform and IO Visor technology, the software
suite lets users create private Virtual Domains to provide isolation, security, and policy enforcement across tenants.

PLUMgrid ONS features:

* Performance: Up to 40 Gbps per server; hardwarde Offload; terbytes of aggregate performance.

* Scalable: across virtual domains, workloads and multiple racks, geographies.

* Supports both hardware and software gateways in highly available configurations.

* Secure: end-to-end encryption within Virtual Domains and isolation across tenants.

* Operational tools: includes a comprehensive suite of powerful networking monitoring and troubleshooting tools.

In addition to the requirements set by a Mirantis 7.0 Installation. The PLUMgrid plugin also has the following requirements
for software and hardware:

Network Requirements

Nodes within the PLUMgrid Zone are connected using the following two networks:

#. **Management:** This network is mapped onto the Management network (br-mgmt) deployed within a Mirantis OpenStack Environment.

#. **Fabric:** This network is mapped directly onto the untagged interface deployed within the Mirantis OpenStack Environment. The fabric network **cannot be bridged or tagged**, it is automatically created by the Fuel PLUMgrid plugin on the interface being used by br-mgmt. The network cidr is specified through the Fuel UI, as explained later. MTU for the entire fabric network is set to 1580 (this is the minimum value for PLUMgrid to work correctly, it will also function for higher values).

Node Interface Requirements

Physical servers with two network interfaces are used as Controllers, Computes and Gateways. A PLUMgrid-Gateway node must also have an additional 1-2 interfaces for external connectivity (these are specified in the PLUMgrid Settings given in the install section). The interfaces configuration is the following:

* First interface is used for PXE network
* Second interface is used for Public, Management and Storage networks using tagged VLANs. The PLUMgrid fabric network is also created here automatically.

:width: 80%

PLUMgrid Repository

Access to a url hosting PLUMgrid packages is required before deployment. A common way to obtain this is to use a LCM image and create the LCM VM, which will host the needed packages. This VM then becomes the source repo for installing and upgrading PLUMgrid. The VM can typically be created on the Infrastructure Server hosting the Fuel VM. It needs to be provided with management and fabric connectivity. Contact PLUMgrid to obtain an LCM image with pre-baked PLUMgrid packages and a license []

Node Requirements
