Virtual Machine

The virtual machine parameters define the left and right Linux servers. The name of the port tuple is defined here and referenced by the heat template. In Contrail, a port tuple is an ordered set of virtual network interfaces connected to the same virtual machine. With a port tuple, you can create ports and pass that information when creating a service instance. The heat template creates the left, right, and management ports and adds them to the port tuple. The port tuple is then linked to the service instance. When you launch the service instance using the heat templates, the port tuple maps the service virtual machine to the virtual machine deployed in OpenStack.
