Are You Ready to Innovate? Four New Virtualization Technologies on the Latest Intel® Xeon® Product Family
(By: Sunil Jain, Virtualization Marketing Manager, Intel Data Center Group)
The Intel® Developer Forum 2015 took place August 18–20 in San Francisco. Intel® also sponsored a day-long Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) and Network Builders Summit on August 17, 2015. There were several interesting sessions at the conference relating to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). In this blog post, we look at some of the highlights and share pointers to session slides or...
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) replaces existing networking appliances such as routers and switches, with virtualized, software-based implementations of these appliances running on standard high-volume servers (also known as Virtual Network Functions (VNFs)). By leveraging NFV, ISPs can provide a virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) solution to reduce their overall operating and...
Enable Virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) with OpenStack* Part 2: Prepare the Virtual Network FunctionsPart 2 of a three-part series, this blog post shows how to emulate two types of virtual network functions (VNFs) when setting up virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) in OpenStack*. The images being created are the bump-in-the-wire operation, such as frame-forwarding (L2 VNF), and software routing (L3 VNF).
Part 3 of the network functions virtualization (NFV) blog posts shows how to create networks in OpenStack* that are backed by physical networks. Use this procedure for virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) to provide additional functions between an Internet service provider (ISP) and your customer.
