Session Abstract

Cloud Native is an approach to building and running applications that exploit the advantages of the cloud computing delivery model. It typically means to use containerized open source software stack, dynamically orchestrated and managed to optimize resource utilization.
To build cloud native NFV infrastructure, in addition to containerized NFV orchestration engine, such as Kubernetes, we need high performance, scalable and micro-service oriented networking solutions to support the requirement of high performance network applications and services.
In this presentation, we would like to show the data plane acceleration(DPDK) usage and programming technique in building the cloud native NFV infrastructure on arm:
1. The data plane acceleration programming in support for high performance user space network stack with event model on arm;
2. The data plane acceleration usage model in high performance inter-hosts Kubernetes container networking solutions;
3. The para-virtualized data plane acceleration accessing mechanism(vhost/virtio) in supporting high performance container connection with virtual switches, such as VPP, OVS
4. The data plane acceleration utilization in cloud native applications deployment and service providing;
5. The performance tunning factors and analysis of data plane acceleration configuration in cloud native NFV infrastructure deployment
