OvS manipulation with Go at DigitalOcean

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

DigitalOcean runs Open vSwitch on every hypervisor in our fleet. For several years, we generated and applied flows by concatenating strings and shelling out to OvS control commands from Perl. However, as we have grown and developed more features for our customers, we have found several limitations to this approach.

This talk will discuss the current and future state of OvS orchestration at DigitalOcean, by examining the technologies that power our hypervisor flow manipulation daemon: hvflowd. Attendees will learn about the challenges we have faced along the way, and the processes and tooling we have developed to confidently make changes to our OvS flow pipelines.
