• Accelerates NFV and SDN solutions
  • Focused on data IO speed and efficiency
  • More flexible and scalable networks and storage

The Fast Data Project: FD.io

A high-performance IO services framework for dynamic computing environments. In fact consisting of several related projects, FD.io aims at satisfying the growing demands of today’s cloud computing environments. The project utilizes Cisco’s widely spread and highly modular Vector Packet Processing library and implements DPDK capabilities favoring flexibility in packet processing solutions. It achieves acceleration in NFV and SDN through support of various additional projects. While developing high-throughput, low-latency and resource-efficient IO services, FD.io remains hardware, kernel, and deployment (bare metal, VM, container) agnostic. Due to its unique dispositions and high adaptability, its capabilities are expected to extend into additional areas and features including security and cloud solutions.
