Nuage VRS-Gateway


The principle use of this charm is provide gateway service between the physical/external and virtualized networking environments. This permits the bridging of the hypervisor-focused overlay networking and physical devices in the data center.

NOTE: this charm relies on binaries that are distributed to customers of Nuage Networks VSP solution.


The VRS-G repositories are provided as an URL (ppa/http) by Nuage Networks to customers to download and deploy using Juju deployer.. The charm expects to find deb's; if they are missing the install hook will error out.
