Astara is an open source network virtualization platform built by OpenStack operators for real OpenStack clouds. Originally developed by DreamHost for their OpenStack-based public cloud, DreamCompute, Astara eliminates the need for complex SDN controllers, overlays, and multiple plugins by providing a simple integrated networking stack (routing, firewall, and load balancing via a virtual Service VM) for connecting and securing multi-tenant OpenStack environments.
