Turbo Charged VNFs at 40 gbits Approaches to Deliver Fast, Low Latency Networking Using OpenStack – #OpenStack

High-speed networking, beyond 10 gig in OpenStack is still a very challenging area. OpenStack has 3 possible approaches: SR-IOV, DPDK enabled virtual switch, or offload via intelligent network adapters. SR-IOV while offering high throughput and low latency, limits advanced features such as VXLAN and MPLS based segmentation, security groups and live migration.
