The Network Cloud integration with TungstenFabric blueprint is based on the original code provided by Juniper Networks for the Akraino Network Cloud Blueprint Family. The NC TungstenFabric blueprint supports only a single server deployment (Unicycle) at the moment
The blueprint uses the Network Cloud family tools. It can be deployed from Regional Controller and creates a single server edge site running Openstack with TungstenFabric.
The TungstenFabric blueprint is primarily intended to demonstrate the automation and software components used by the Network Cloud family with the minimal hardware or network requirements. This blueprint provide SDN capability provided by TungstenFabric.
Where on the Edge
The TungstenFabric blueprint can be deployed at any location in a network where a single server Openstack service is required to support applications.
User clones gerrit repos nv/tf and api-server, generates ssh-keypair and put public key on EdgeSite (it will be used for authorization from Regional Controller).
Then user put private key and deployment script (deploy.sh) on web-server. (web server is not a good way for sharing ssh private key, we use this only for testing and we should use another
way in future). Then user changes file setup-env.sh with appropriate data and generate yaml files for edgesite, blueprint and load them to Regional Controller api-server using rc_cli tool.
When edgesite and blueprint are created user put their UUIDs to environment variables and generates POD.yaml and load to Regional Controller api-server using rc_cli tool.
API server creates Airflow DAG which goes to the Edgesite host using ssh-authorization and run script deploy.sh on it. The script runs airship-ib-the-bottle deployment.
