Next Gen Virtual Switch
With the increasing prevalence of cloud computing, there is a proliferation of east-west traffic in clouds, and growing demands for virtualizing network I/O intensive workloads at telcos with big data. All those put huge amount of challenges on existing virtual switches. In this presentation, we will share with the DPDK community what we learned while building the CloudNetEngine virtual switch, which is based on great open source projects like DPDK, OVS, NPF, etc. We'll have deep dive discussions on how to boost performance, improve CPU efficiency, implement a rich feature set needed by public and private clouds — overlay, security group, QoS, HW/SW offload, load balance, monitoring and ease of integration with cloud ecosystem.
