Get ready for an upcoming DemoFriday™ that will help you learn how to build network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) and eliminate network bottlenecks when transitioning to NFV. 6WIND and Red Hat will team up next month to present a demo of high-performance NFV for a routing virtual network function (VNF) using 6WINDGate high-performance packet-processing software and the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.
The demo will highlight the 6WINDGate Open vSwitch (OVS) Acceleration module, a key feature for appliances based on generic platforms. The module makes it possible for customers to build high-performance networking applications using standard Linux OSs, hypervisors, and management without modifying existing architecture.
Join Yann Rapaport, product manager with 6WIND, and Red Hat’s Glenn Rudolph, global partner and alliances ISV director, as they cover:
- How 6WINDGate can accelerate virtual switch functionality to deliver more than 10x performance transparently without having to recompile the standard OVS
- How to accelerate virtual switch functionality without changing anything in Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, the KVM/QEMU hypervisor, or the OpenFlow controller
- How the 6WINDGate OVS Acceleration module can help users extend their existing Red Hat solutions based on OVS, KVM/QEMU hypervisors, or OpenStack to build high-performance applications on virtual equipment.
Join us for the DemoFriday™ with 6WIND and Red Hat when we webcast it live on Friday, May 23, at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Registration is limited to SDxCentral members. To become a member today, join here — membership is free! (Note: this event has passed. You can view the archive here.)
