I found your meeting logs about multi-site/kingbird/tricircle, and some of you get confused about that. Some short explanation here:

Multisite is a requirement project in OPNFV to identify the gap and requirement in OpenStack to make OpenStack work for NFV multi-site cloud.

Kingbird is one sub-project of Multisite, which is aiming at centralized quota management, centralized view for distributed virtual resources, synchronisation of ssh keys, images, flavors, security groups, etc. across regions in OpenStack multi-region deployments. Currently is working on key-pair sync, and centralized quota management feature has been implemented.

While Tricircle is one OpenStack big-tent official project, and focuses on networking automation across Neutron in OpenStack multi-region deployments. Tricircle has basic features L2/L3 networking across Neutron based on local network and shared_VLAN, and is working on VxLAN based L2 networking across Neutron, so that L2/L3 networking can also leverage the  VxLAN L2 networking capability.

During the last year(2015) discussion, both kingbird / tricircle are candidate solution to address the multisite clouds, but Tricircle has narrowed down its scope during the OpenStack big-tent project application. Kingbird and Tricircle can work together or separately in OpenStack multi-region deployment, they are complimented each other now. Kingbird has no features about networking automation, and Tricircle has no features related to Nova/Cinder...

Tricircle is mostly visible in OpenStack community, while kingbird is mostly visible in OPNFV community.

Welcome to join the meeting:
   Tricircle: IRC meeting: https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=openstack-meeting on every Wednesday starting from UTC 13:00
   Multisite & Kingbird: IRC: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=opnfv-meeting on every Thursday 8:00-9:00 UTC (During winter time, means CET 9:00 AM).

Best Regards

Hi All,

We will have our bi-weekly meeting tomorrow at the usual time/place [1].

We'll continue our conversation from last meeting  regarding what a
minimum NFVi OpenStack deployment is. In particular we got a bit stuck
around the whether or not it would be "multi-cloud/site/region" and
what those terms actually mean, which is quite hard to define IMHO.

Please feel free to add to the agenda [2]!

I noticed that OPNFV has a project around multi-site/region [3] that
perhaps we should be looking into if we do decide that
multi-site/region is something we'd like to pursue.
