I am a beginner in openflow. We want to set up a cloud in openstack consisting of compute nodes together with network nodes. About the network side I have some questions. Would that be possible to use Mininet which is controlled by opendaylight to create the network side? I know that opendaylight is supported in openstack and also mininet uses OVS which is also supported by openstack.
My other option is to use OVS directly to create my own topology. But since, I just have one server, I am a bit confused how I can implement several bridges connected to each other. Should I create some containers?
Please help me if you know any information about this.
