Feature list


MidoNet provides VPNaaS support compatible with Neutron implementation. It enables setting up VPNs between tenant of the same or separate Openstack platforms. A VPN can also be established between a client outside of the Openstack platform.

Router peering

The router peering feature of MidoNet provides overlay connectivity between multiple sites with VXLAN tunneling. The following section describes the Neutron CLI and REST API commands to set up router peering. All of the following operations are executed only by the cloud operator.

The Neutron APIs defined for the router peering feature are not supported by the current upstream implementation of Neutron CLI, so they must be executed by making HTTP requests directly to the Neutron API server.
