To that end, VMware, in collaboration with Intel, is bringing DPDK
network acceleration to VMware vCloud NFV-OpenStack 3.0, to deliver the packet processing performance and throughput required by communications service providers to meet these new demands."
and netmap provide high-performance I/O framework for OpenFlow software switching.
Intel platforms allow applications and network functions to be implemented in a single, scalable multi-core architecture with up to 10x improvement in data plane processing performance using Intel DPDK
Featuring 8/12/16-core Intel[R] Xeon[R] D-2100 processors, 10x GbE RJ45 (8 Port PoE+), 4x 10G SFP, Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK
) and Intel[R] QuickAssist Technology (Intel[R] QAT) for improved network performance, the NCA-4020, a verified Intel[R] Selection Solution for uCPE, delivers significant performance enhancement in running multiple virtual network functions VNFs in SD-WAN, reduces testing and validation efforts, and accelerates time-to-market deployment.
The high-performance CPUs with acceleration via Intel[R] QuickAssist Technology combined with optimizations through DPDK
, enable exceptional throughput and latency performance.
The VEP 4600 is powered by the new Intel Xeon D-2100 product family, IntelA QuickAssist Technology (IntelA QAT), and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK
Moreover, though the forwarding performance for actuators is evidently lower compared with hardware path, this could be improved if high-efficient data path (e.g., DPDK
) is utilized for the communication between software and hardware on the switch.
- Full support for VLAN-aware virtual machines (VMs), OpenStack-based VMs can now send and receive VLAN encapsulated traffic while being deployed over Open vSwitch (OVS) or OVS Data Plane Development Kit (OVS- DPDK
For Communication service providers, the HPE adapter, powered by Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx with DPDK
Poll Mode Driver (PMD) and Accelerated Switch and Packet Processing, (ASAP^2), delivers record setting packet processing performance of 33 million packets per second, with zero packet loss, which enables highly efficient network function virtualization (NFV) deployments.
It is based on open software standards, including carrier-grade Wind River Linux, real-time Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), carrier-grade plugins for OpenStack, Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK
) and accelerated virtual switching, all optimized for Intel architecture platforms.
Developed by telecom experts, Wind River's NFV solutions are based on Wind River Open Virtualization with Wind River Linux, optimized real-time Kernel-Based Virtual Machine (KVM++), carrier grade enhancements to OpenStack, and Intel Data Plane Development Kit (Intel DPDK
) accelerated vSwitch technologies.
The FlowEnvironment includes standards-compliant support for Open vSwitch (OVS) 2.0, OpenFlow 1.4, Intel DPDK
, and network virtualization protocols such as NV-GRE and VXLAN.
