Voting Just Opened for OpenStack Australia
The 2017 Openstack Summit just opened up voting for presentations to be given Nov. 6-8, Sydney, Australia. Mellanox has a long history of supporting OpenStack with technology and product solutions. Mellanox has submitted a number of technical papers and would like to urge readers to vote, vote, vote! The OpenStack Foundation receives more than 1,500 submissions and of these, they only select 25-35 percent for participation, so your votes truly do count.
In this blog, we will cover the topic and content of two of our submissions. There is only one short week to vote so please review the content and vote for your favorites. Voting begins July 25, 2017 and ends August 1, 2017.
First paper topic: Warp-speed Openvswitch: Turbo Charge VNFs to 100Gbps In NextGen SDN/NFV Datacenter
Overview: Red Hat, Nuage Networks and Mellanox will address new requirements from Telco-NFV and Enterprises for speed, secure and scalable nextgen datacenter networks with OVS offload to SmartNIC. Highlights include:
OVS Offload to SmartNIC provides best of both worlds; high performance with SR-IOV and offload OVS switching; firewall filtering, QoS marking, encap/decap tunneling.
Mellanox will discuss the OVS Offload architecture and POC results including all the building blocks; Linux kernel, OVS, Openstack and SDN controller coming together, to address the challenges of the nextgen datacenter.
Second paper topic: Harmonizing Openstack and Kubernestes Networking Services
Overview: When it comes to hosting workloads across Containers and VM, having parity in terms of networking services between Kubernestes and Openstack is of paramount importance. Today, hosting Kubernestes on top of Openstack results in inferior container networking compared to a VM. Openstack networking services are far advanced in terms of network provisioning, automation, support for 25Gbps/50Gbps /100Gbps network speeds, and advance features such as RDMA.
In this presentation, Mellanox will focus on following key topics:
By bringing Kubernestes CNI services at par with Openstack ML2 neutron, workloads can be hosted seamlessly across both VMs and Containers within Openstack environments.
Thanks for voting and see you in Sydney!
