Hybrid service chaining across multiple Hypervisors

OpenContrail supports multiple types of hypervisors and containers. These can spawn simple tenant VMs and also more complex service instances implementing a Virtualized Network Function (NFV).

This video demonstrates a service chain composed of two service instances. One is running on a KVM host, and the other on an ESXi host.

This hybrid service chain enables value-added services for tenant VMs which are also spread across KVM and ESXi hypervisors.
