Kubernetes and Network Function Virtualization (NFV): Friends or Foes?
Recorded Feb 07 08:00 am
About this Webinar
Kubernetes is typically used to run workloads of production web applications at massive scale. While NFV control plane functions are similar to the usual k8s workloads, data plane functions differ greatly and require special attention in order that the capabilities of k8s can be extended to support NFV use cases.
This work spans k8s resource management and networking to support NUMA, CPU pinning & isolation, hugepage memory, node feature discovery, multiple networks and high performance network i/o with SR-IOV, Device Plugins and user space networking(DPDK, OVS-DPDK & VPP). This talk will discuss these efforts and their current status and provide an opportunity for those interested to learn more about joining the effort to further these solutions upstream.
