Extending Service Chaining Functionality to Bare Metal Servers

Contrail Networking Release 1912 extends the service chaining functionality to bare metal servers (BMS). In earlier releases, Contrail Networking supports traffic flow between a virtual machine in one virtual network and a virtual machine in another virtual network. However, traffic flow between a virtual machine and BMS through a service chain was not supported. With Release 1912, Contrail Networking supports the movement of inter-LR traffic by using virtual network functions (VNF). This EVPN-based VXLAN (Ethernet VPN-based Virtual Extensible LAN) service chain supports bidirectional traffic flow through a service virtual machine.

VNF service chaining uses EVPN with VXLAN to enable traffic flow between two bare metal servers, a bare metal server and a virtual machine, and a virtual machine and a bare metal server.

For more information, see Creating VNF Service Chains for Inter-LR Traffic
