Netronome Announces the Addition of Express Virtio (XVIO) Technology to its Agilio™ Server Networking Platform

Netronome has announced the addition of Express Virtio (XVIO) technology to its Agilio™ Server Networking Platform. An industry first, the innovative XVIO technology eliminates significant operational, performance and server efficiency-related challenges. XVIO brings to the standard Virtio drivers available in many Guest OS’s the level of performance of SR-IOV solutions but maintains full VM mobility. This enables virtual machines (VMs) managed using OpenStack to experience bare metal-like networking performance and at the same time supports complete hardware independence and seamless customer VM onboarding. For the cloud service provider, the benefit utilizing OpenStack cloud orchestration is a consistent and homogenous infrastructure where VMs can be placed and moved to optimize utilization of the data center while maintaining high performance. XVIO technology enabled in Agilio server networking platforms such as Agilio OVS and Agilio vRouter are now integrated with Ericsson’s Cloud SDN product and Juniper’s Open Contrail vRouter product respectively, enabling OpenStack-based networking to deliver higher application performance while reducing TCO by up to 6 times. According to multiple industry reports, mobile data traffic is forecasted to grow by 10X between 2015 and 2021, driven primarily by video, gaming, data, and IoT applications. These diverse and emerging applications will result in cloud workloads driving more than 75% of data center traffic. During the same period, cloud IaaS hardware and software spending is forecasted to increase 6X. The slowing down of Moore’s Law requires the use of hardware-based network accelerators to maintain and boost performance efficiency of servers and related power and cooling, which consume more than 60% of data center costs. To enable virtualized server-based network performance scaling the industry has deployed a number of acceleration mechanisms. DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) requires changes to applications and VMs, adversely affecting server efficiency and cannot use key Linux kernel-based networking services. Unlike SR-IOV, a PCI-SIG technology, XVIO does not limit VM mobility and availability of networking and security services needed by VMs, but delivers the same level of performance. The Netronome Agilio server networking platforms with XVIO technology deliver a simple deployment model that removes barriers and makes adoption of networking accelerators economical and practical, saving CAPEX and OPEX in a significant way. The advanced XVIO technology is based on and builds upon industry standard and open source technologies such as SR-IOV, Virtio and DPDK supported by OpenStack. The XVIO technology and software components are transparent and integrate easily with open source and commercial server networking software such Open vSwitch (OVS), Linux Firewall and Contrail vRouter. VMs and their applications do not require any changes and all popular guest operation systems with standard Virtio drivers are supported. Netronome has implemented solutions to seamlessly integrate XVIO technology into OpenStack and has an OpenStack request for enhancement (RFE) to Nova and Neutron components for the same. Agilio OVS, Agilio OVS Firewall and Agilio vRouter beta software with XVIO technology are available now, with production versions of the software expected during fourth quarter 2016 and first quarter 2017. The software is supported on all available Agilio CX intelligent server adapters designed for COTS servers.

Netronome and Ericsson Announces Joint Demonstration of Ericsson Cloud SDN Platform

Netronome and Ericsson announced a joint demonstration of the Ericsson Cloud SDN Platform accelerated by the Netronome Agilio server-based networking solution. The demonstration, featured this week in Ericsson’s exhibit booth (Hall 2, Stand 2N60) at Mobile World Congress, will showcase significant reduction of total cost of ownership (TCO) for Cloud SDN and NFV applications by utilizing hardware-based acceleration of virtual switch processing. The efficiency of modern data center infrastructures is driven by virtual machine (VM) capacity and network performance achieved by traditional IT and modern NFV workloads running in the VMs. Critical server-based networking functions, such as virtualization, security, load balancing and telemetry are required to run workloads in the VMs. When such server-based networking functions are implemented using software and server CPU cores, such as with a virtual switch, not only are the workloads in the VMs starved for needed network bandwidth, but they also become limited in density per server. The result is that more servers are needed for the workloads and required outputs, bloating CAPEX and OPEX significantly, and driving up overall TCO. The joint Netronome and Ericsson demonstration showcases how this problem can be solved using innovative server-based hardware and software solutions that can be easily deployed by service providers and enterprises.
