FD.io (Fast Data) is the first truly open data plane project focusing on data IO performance, scalability, efficiency, and programmable flexibility for networking and storage. FD.io provides a modular, extensible user space IO services framework that supports rapid development of high-throughput low-latency resource-efficient IO services. The design of FD.io is hardware, kernel, and deployment (bare metal, VM, container) agnostic. FD.io has been integrated with OpenStack Neutron, OpenDaylight, and Calico to provide a drop in upgrade for all of your dataplane needs. A key component of FD.io is the Vector Packet Processing (VPP) library contributed at the foundation of the project. The commercial-ready code targetable to run on standard x86, ARM, and Power servers is already running in products on the market today. VPP when connected to DPDK for network IO has shown to perform two orders of magnitude faster than currently available open source options implementing switching or routing workloads, reaffirming one of the core principles of FD.io: a focus on performance.

Join us at the FD.io Mini Summit to hear and learn from FD.io community experts who will be sharing information about the projects, use cases, capabilities, integration between FD.io and OpenStack/ODL/OPNFV/Other communities, tools and many more exciting topics. This is a great opportunity for the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon attendees to share their thought leadership and innovations at one of the industry’s premier events. 

*No Show Fee - Note that while FD.io Mini Summit is free to attend, anyone that is a no-show onsite will be charged $50 for each event not attended. This helps us in planning accurately for the event.
