Fast Data (FD.io) Project Mini Summit (Additional registration required)
Schedule announced!

FD.io (Fast Data) is the first truly open data plane project focusing on data IO performance, scalability, efficiency, and programmable flexibility for networking and storage. FD.io provides a modular, extensible user space IO services framework that supports rapid development of high-throughput low-latency resource-efficient IO services. The design of FD.io is hardware, kernel, and deployment (bare metal, VM, container) agnostic. FD.io has been integrated with Kubernetes, OpenStack Neutron, and OpenDaylight to provide a drop in upgrade for all of your dataplane needs.

A key component of FD.io is the Vector Packet Processing (VPP) library contributed at the foundation of the project. The commercial-ready code targetable to run on standard x86, Arm, and Power servers is already running in products on the market today. VPP when connected to DPDK for network I/O has shown to perform two orders of magnitude faster than currently available open source options implementing switching or routing workloads, reaffirming one of the core principles of FD.io: a focus on performance.

Join us for the Fast Data (FD.io) Project Mini Summit at KubeCon+CloudNativeCon North America in Seattle, Monday, December 10, to learn from FD.io community experts who will be sharing information about the projects, use cases, capabilities, how FD.io enables cloud native network functions, cross-community integration with Kubernetes/ODL/OPNFV/other communities, tools and many more exciting topics. This is a great opportunity for KubeCon+CloudNativeCon attendees to share thought leadership and innovations at one of the industry’s premier events.
