LAS16-405: OpenDataPlane: Software Defined Dataplane leader Speakers: François-Frédéric Ozog Date: September 29, 2016
★ Session Description ★ You may think OpenDataPlane and DPDK are somewhat equivalent. But they are not. OpenDataPlane is about Software Defined Dataplanes while DPDK is a Software Dataplane. A Software Defined Dataplane can control a hardware only Dataplane in a way that packets can go from input port to output port without reaching a CPU core. With Software Dataplanes , all packets have to reach a CPU core. As a result, one vendor could leverage a Software Defined Dataplane to build a 100Tbps network box while it is not possible with a Software Dataplane.
