Quantum

The Quantum project provides "network connectivity as a service". This page tracks Fedora Cloud SIG's effort to maintain Quantum in Fedora.

This page will address the installation and configuration of the following:

  • Quantum Server

The Quantum service is installed as follows:

Quantum Plugins

The plugin is responsible for the dynamic configuration of the switches. The following plugins are supported:

The plugin needs to be installed on all of the nodes.
