The Intel® Developer Forum has long become a destination for developers to gather, work together, and ignite the spark of innovation that is only made possible on Intel® technologies. It is also a place for the Intel® Builders ecosystem to showcase the bleeding-edge innovations driving the transformation of the data center.
The Intel Builders Community, among many other IDF Technology communities, showcases the latest ecosystem solutions and Intel® technologies that enable a more automated, agile data center infrastructure. This year, the community will be represented by partners from Intel® Cloud Builders, Intel® Network Builders, and Intel® Storage Builders and will showcase demos that help enterprises, cloud, and communications service providers build, operate, and innovate next-generation solutions for data centers, accelerating along the path to software defined infrastructure (SDI).
Registrations for IDF-SF are now open.
Technical Sessions at IDF-SF 2016
Intel will host a variety of technical content sessions during IDF-SF. Sessions of specific interest to Intel® Builders members include "Cryptography and Compression Acceleration for NFV, Cloud, and Hyper-Converged Solutions," "Strategies and Tools to Optimize Modern Workloads," and "State of the Stack: What to Expect of OpenStack,* Compute, Network, and Storage."

New SDN and NFV Essentials and DPDK Content on Intel® Network Builders University
Intel® Network Builders University is excited to announce the release of five new courses. We completed the Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Essentials Series within the Basic Training program. The four new classes are designed to provide conceptual yet practical examples of where these technologies are applied to a communication service provider's network and how the network will transition from today's physical network to tomorrow's virtualized and agile networks. The four additional class titles are:
The DPDK program was also expanded with the addition of DPDK 16.04, providing an overview of new features in a recent DPDK release.
The Intel Network Builders University online course content is growing. There are now 35 courses covering a broad spectrum of topics of varying technical difficulty. You can access the content by creating a login here, or Intel Network Builders members can use their member login. We welcome your feedback and new topic ideas for future course development.

Intel Demonstrates Commitment to Open Communities at OPNFV* Summit in Berlin
Intel had an active presence at the recent OPNFV* Summit in Berlin. John Healy delivered a keynote address for the event. He discussed how open communities are driving performance innovations that continue to improve the suitability of NFV for upcoming capabilities such as 5G, and how these innovations are creating opportunities for Intel ecosystem partners as they work toward network transformation. You can watch the address in this video.
Healy also discussed how the increasing maturity in project planning and code realization within OPNFV is becoming a predictor of its future success, and Intel's commitment to OPNFV–including key contributions in 2016 like contributing engineering resources to performance, service assurance, and test projects–in a blog post on the Intel Network Builders website.
Recent contributions to the Open vSwitch* open source project have enabled DPDK software accelerations in the datapath. The Open vSwitch 2.5.0 release provides users with a more performant software dataplane for network functions virtualization (NFV). This webinar presents three key enhancements made to the DPDK-enabled datapath in the Open vSwitch 2.5 timeframe: DPDK 2.2 integration, OVN Support, and vhost-multiqueue.
In this webinar, Intel experts discuss standalone SFC features (e.g., modeling, augmented ACL and control plane implementation) in OpenDaylight* Beryllium release to control the NSH-based SFC classifier. They also cover OpenDaylight SFC 103 Setup, a solution to OpenFlow multiple-writer issue in OpenDaylight, and an approach in OpenDaylight "Genius" project to resolve the multiple-writer issue.
The DPDK 16.07 release came out at the end of July. The release contains a number of enhancements, including:
The full feature list is available in the Release Notes. You can also watch an overview of the release features with the DPDK 16.07 New Features webinar.
