Metal as a Service is a tool that allows treating physical servers like virtual machines (instances) in the cloud.
The logical group of subnets that Juju will use to bind deployed services to networks.
Sets of interconnected VLANs that are capable of mutual communication.
a “layer 3” broadcast address range identified by a CIDR like (IPv4), or 2001:db8::/32 (IPv6). A subnet can be part of one and only one space. In MAAS, a subnet can be attached to one VLAN and one space.
we define a network as collection of subnets, all of which are in principle route-able to one another. It is an abstract, high-level concept, representing “network domains” with distinct boundaries, like the “office network”, “home network” or “the Internet”.
VLANs are a common way to create logically separate networks using the same physical infrastructure. While there are different ways to implement VLANs, here we specifically refer to the IEEE 802.1Q standard.

Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) is the fourth version of the Internet Protocol (IP).

Cloud self-service
User self-provisioning, also known as cloud self-service, is a system that allows end users to set up and launch applications and services in a cloud computing environment without the direct intervention of an IT organization or a service provider. Many self-provisioning user portals are paired with a service catalog, which is a list of applications and services that are sanctioned by an enterprise’s IT organization and available for self-provisioning. The IT organization can establish several back-end policies that automatically assign compute, storage and network resources to support the applications in a service catalog, along with specific security and performance settings.
