Register for: DPDK Summit USA 2016 on August 10 – 11, 2016 produced by DPDK community!
Don’t miss the DPDK Summit USA 2016 on August 10 – 11, 2016:
The DPDK Summit events provide an opportunity for the DPDK community to meet face-to-face and discuss the future direction of the project in a variety of industry segments including telco, cloud, enterprise, security, and financial services. The agenda will cover the latest developments to the DPDK framework, plans for future releases, as well as an opportunity to hear from DPDK users who have used the framework in their applications. The summits also provide a great opportunity to meet and learn from other DPDK developers.
What is DPDK Summit?
DPDK Summit is a face-to-face gathering of the DPDK community gathering event taking place a few times a year around the world. It strives to advance a forward looking dialogue on the progression of packet processing technology. A variety of technical topics get discussed, debated, and agreed on in this event in a collegial fashion. DPDK Summit is open to all who care about packet processing at large, although you may find the discussion here driven by highly technical topics. Past event proceedings, including video recordings, can be accessed in the Past Events section of www.dpdksummit.com
What is Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK)?
Networking technology is pervasive. It’s used in a variety of industry segments including telecom, cloud, enterprise, security, financial services, healthcare, and defense. All these segments have networking infrastructure requirements in a variety of shapes and forms, and each of those infrastructures have one common theme, and that is data plane – a logical entity in the system which processes the bulk of the packetized networking traffic. This data plane in the networking infrastructure elements needs to be fast, flexible, and open. The Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) delivers that in the form of a community-driven open source software project.
DPDK accelerates data plane performance using general purpose processors by an order of magnitude when compared with other prominent software architectures. Currently supported CPU architectures are x86, TILE-Gx, PowerPC, ARMv7 and ARMv8. DPDK enables CPU cores to process packets continuously – unimpeded by the operating system, other applications, or interrupts – which greatly increases system performance and determinism. These benefits are applicable to purpose-built and emerging network functions virtualization (NFV) equipment.
