Networking lies right at the heart of MAAS.
Connect MAAS networks
The first step is to set up connections within MAAS, so that MAAS nodes will be able to talk to the MAAS controllers.
In MAAS, DHCP is required for node discovery - unless DHCP is set up correctly, MAAS will not be able to discover the machines.
Manage availability zones
Machines can be allocated to different availability zones for fault-tolerance.
