New paradigms in networking industry, such as Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), require the hypervisors to enable the execution of Virtual Network Functions in virtual machines (VMs). In this context, the virtual switch function is critical to achieve carrier grade performance, hardware independence, advanced features and programmability. SnabbSwitch is a virtual switch designed to run in user space with carrier grade performance targets, based on an… CONTINUE READING
