The IBM PowerVM hypervisor provides virtualization on POWER hardware. This project will provide an ML2 compatible agent for PowerVM Shared Ethernet Adapter integration with OpenStack Neutron.

This PowerVM Neutron ML2 agent will provide support for VLAN networks across Shared Ethernet Adapters. It will provision the VLANs on the Virtual I/O Servers (VIOS) to support the client workload, via the PowerVM REST API. The Nova component will set up the peer adapter as part of VIF plugging. The design of this agent will attempt to match, where possible, the design of existing agents. However, only networks of physical type VLAN will be supported initially.
