Secrets for approaching bare-metal performance with Real-Time Virtual Network Functions in OpenStack – #OpenStack

The transition of real-time applications like Session Border Controllers from network appliance to virtualized network function (VNF) in Openstack poses many challenges. A virtualized SBC (vSBC), which handles real-time audio, video and collaboration services, needs to deliver similar performance to its hardware counterpart. Services like firewall, transcoding, encryption and tunneling have different CPU, memory and IO requirements. A vSBC providing theses services demands high throughput, low l
