In the physical world in case two switches connected to each other with a cable, I can put a device in the middle, so all traffic would flow through that device.
Switch A <--------------------> Switch B | | | v Switch A <--> Inline Device <--> Switch B
This device in inline because it gets the traffic and can drop/redirect/whatever due to certain rules.
Is there anything similar in the virtual world? How can it be achieved virtually?
- I have 2
Dockernetworks. I want to have this inline process/container between them. Or
- 2 networks in
Openstackwhich I want to have an inline process/container/vm
Is there any simple trick to have it done?
- OVS ?
