  • This event has passed. Mini Summit @ Open Stack, Boston May 10th

May 10, 2017

Join Us for Open Source Day, Wednesday, May 10, at Openstack Boston 2017

Click Here for Detailed Agenda (Fast Data) is the first truly open data plane project focusing on data IO performance, scalability, efficiency, and programmable flexibility for networking and storage. 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 is hardware, kernel, and deployment (bare metal, VM, container) agnostic. has been integrated with OpenStack Neutron, OpenDaylight, and Calico to provide a drop in upgrade for all of your dataplane needs.

A key component of Fido 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 a focus on performance.

Join us at the Mini summit to hear and learn from community experts who will be sharing information about the projects, use cases, capabilities, integration between and OpenStack/ODL/OPNFV/Other communities, tools and many more exciting topics. This is a great opportunity for the OpenStack attendees to share their thought leadership and innovations at one of the industry’s premier events.
