Join 6WIND for a SDxCentral DemoFriday™ on how to eliminate your network bottlenecks when moving from traditional appliances to software-based network functions virtualization (NFV). During this DemoFriday™, 6WIND will review a high-performance NFV demo for a routing virtual network function (VNF) that leverages 6WINDGate high performance packet processing software and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. The demo will detail the 6WINDGate Open vSwitch (OVS) Acceleration module, which is a key feature for the new generation of appliances based on generic platforms so that customers can build high performance networking applications using standard Linux OSs, hypervisors and management, without modifying existing architecture.
Open vSwitch is widely used by open source hypervisors to perform switching for virtual machines (VMs). 6WINDGate can accelerate the virtual switch function to deliver over 10x performance transparently without having to recompile the standard OVS, neither change anything in Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, nor in the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)/ QEMU hypervisor, nor OpenFlow controller. With the 6WINDGate OVS Acceleration module, Service Providers, Cloud Providers and Enterprises can easily extend their existing Red Hat solution based on Open vSwitch, KVM/QEMU hypervisor, or OpenStack to build high-performance applications on virtual equipment.
This demo is designed for Service Providers, Cloud Providers and Enterprises to learn how to build Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) with 6WINDGate packet processing software and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform to increase performance towards the VNFs such as virtual routing and security applications.
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!
