Openstack Group Based Policy

Project description

Group Based Policy (GBP) provides declarative abstractions for achieving scalable intent-based infrastructure automation.

GBP complements the OpenStack networking model with the notion of policies that can be applied between groups of network endpoints. As users look beyond basic connectivity, richer network services with diverse implementations and network properties are naturally expressed as policies. Examples include service chaining, QoS, path properties, access control, etc.

GBP allows application administrators to express their networking requirements using a Group and a Policy Rules-Set abstraction. The specifics of policy rendering are left to the underlying pluggable policy driver.

GBP model also supports a redirect operation that makes it easy to abstract and consume complex network service chains and graphs.

Checkout the GBP wiki page for more detailed information: <http://wiki.openstack.org/GroupBasedPolicy>

The latest code is available at: <http://git.openstack.org/cgit/openstack/group-based-policy>.

GBP project management (blueprints, bugs) is done via Launchpad: <http://launchpad.net/group-based-policy>
