Network Virtualization REST APIs?

I've noticed that (in my version anyway) there are no network virtualization APIs. Most other SDN controllers seem to have this sort of functionality today, and I know that HP is active with OpenStack, which provides a network virtualization abstraction as a fundamental aspect of Neutron.

 

So I'm wondering if either (a) I'm just missing the virtualization stuff, or (b) it is not currently present, but will be soon?

 

Thanks!

Re: Network Virtualization REST APIs?

That’s is a really good question. Yes, HP Networking will be delivering network virtualization through an application rather than as a native component of the controller.

Thanks for the reply, that helps a lot. Will this application be available at, or near, the time that the controller releases? Or soon after?

 

Also, will there be REST APIs for the virtualization functionality (e.g. for creating networks and attaching hosts), or will the application functionality be self-contained?

 

Thanks again.
