Open Virtual Network (OVN) is an open-source SDN controller, providing abstractions for switching, routing, security policies, etc., with steadily improving adoption in the community. However, its implementation is predominantly overlay based, which limits its usage in on-prem deployments, where backend implementation is expected to be VLAN rather than an overlay. We would like to bring OVN control plane to on-prem deployments as well.

In this talk, we will go through the limitations in OVN for on-prem deployment and the corresponding enhancements done. We will explain how these fixes, allowed us to build a unified SDN networking stack which could be used for building on-prem private clouds and overlay backed multi-tenant public clouds. We will further explain, additional work done in OVN to provide hybrid cloud connectivity between on-prem deployments and public clouds.
