Hi Joe,

Thanks for the information. I would say that yes multi-site, region is
hard to define and we struggled with it a bit, and perhaps still will.
:) But your email definitely helps, and I will pull information from
it to include in some of our documentation.

I attended one of the tricircle sessions at Barcelona, so have a
little bit of background on triciricle.

> 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...
