Hi Eugene,

Thanks for writing this up nicely and sharing it. One clarification on terminology I want to understand is in the diagram, do you consider "drivers" as vendor-specific parts like in today's implementation, or are you using drivers also to implement generic components that might not be vendor-specific like device inventory and scheduling?

Hi folks,

I've prepared a list of a major action items needed for futher development of multivendor and production-ready LBaaS: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Quantum/LBaaS/HavanaPlan

I'd be glad to here your feedback about it.
I think we need to start discussing these items in more details.

Aside from this list I imply that vendors will create their drivers choosing whatever architecture is reasonable for their solution, while quantum provides convenient way of integrating them.
Also, as you can see, some of action items (like service insertion or device inventory) have scope beyond LBaaS so I expect folks who are interested in other services to participate in corresponding discussions.
