DPDK and FD.io Mini Summit
Tuesday, June 13
9:00 - 17:00
The Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) is a set of drivers and software libraries for accelerating packet processing workloads on general purpose processors. It’s an open source, vendor-neutral project that runs on multiple different CPU platforms (x86, IA32, Power 8, ARMv7/v8) and supports NICs from a wide variety of vendors. It’s used in many different industry segments, including wireless core and access, wireline, cable, network appliances, cloud, and enterprise. DPDK is one of the foundation stones for NFV, providing the packet processing performance required to make NFV a reality.
Join us as the DPDK mini summit to hear about the latest developments in the project from community experts. Topics covered will include the DPDK roadmap, DPDK support in containers, the extension of the DPDK framework to support new accelerator types, and DPDK support for Service Assurance requirements defined by OPNFV.
FD.io (Fast Data) is the first truly open data plane project focusing on data IO performance, scalability, efficiency, and programmable flexibility for networking and storage. FD.io provides a modular, extensible user space IO services framework that supports rapid development of high-throughput low-latency resource-efficient IO services. The design of FD.io is hardware, kernel, and deployment (bare metal, VM, container) agnostic. FD.io has been integrated with OpenStack Neutron, OpenDaylight, and Calico to provide a drop in upgrade for all of your dataplane needs.A key component of Fido is the Vector Packet Processing (VPP) library contributed at the foundation of the project. The commercial-ready code targetable to run on standard x86, ARM, and Power servers is already running in products on the market today. VPP when connected to DPDK for network I/O has shown to perform two orders of magnitude faster than currently available open source options implementing switching or routing workloads, reaffirming one of the core principles of FD.io: a focus on performance.
Join us at the FD.io Mini summit to hear and learn from FD.io community experts who will be sharing information about the projects, use cases, capabilities, integration between FD.io and OpenStack/ODL/OPNFV/Other communities, tools and many more exciting topics. This is a great opportunity for the OPNFV attendees to share their thought leadership and innovations at one of the industry’s premier events.
