A Flexible Scalable Approach
Intel® architecture provides a standard, reusable, shared platform for SDN/NFV that is easy to dynamically upgrade, maintain, and scale.
When you are ready for SDN/NFV, what choices must you make? Get several recipes for building virtualized network switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers, web servers, and other communication functions.
Service chaining is an emerging set of technologies that will enable telecom service providers to virtualize services currently being carried out by proprietary software and hardware. Learn about two proof-of-concept demos to address the technology gaps.
Ubuntu* distributions now include a standard system package for DPDK-enhanced Open vSwitch* (openvswitch-switch-dpdk). These steps are required to install, configure, and use this package for enhanced network throughput and performance.
Learn how to configure an egress policer Quality-of-Service (QoS) instance for a Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) interface on Open vSwitch* (OvS) with DPDK that enhances DPDK port types performance in Open vSwitch server deployment.
This firewall for OpenStack’s Neutron project is based entirely on Open vSwitch rules and on "learn action". It also uses the same public API to talk to the Neutron agent as the existing Linux Bridge firewall implementation, making it a straight swap for people already using OvS.
Intel® QuickAssist Technology accelerates and compresses cryptographic workloads by offloading the data to hardware capable of optimizing those functions. This article covers a variety of use cases, including improved packet processing performance, pattern matching, SDN/NFV integration, data movement in Hadoop* installations, and performance acceleration where data encryption is required.
