What you need to know about Astara

Astara provides OpenStack operators with a vendor-agnostic network orchestration platform that addresses the complex nature and scale of Neutron implementations. Astara features a driver-based orchestrator to manage network functions from different providers on bare metal, in virtual machines (VMs) and containers.

Project Astara – formerly Akanda – has been an open source project for three years originating from DreamHost with the core development work done by key contributors to OpenStack Neutron. The first supported release was made available in May 2015, with the second release slated for availability at the OpenStack Summit Tokyo in late October.
