Scalable High-Performance User Space Interface/Stack for Containers in NFV - Jianfeng Tan & Zhihong Wang, Intel

Container-based NFV is becoming more and more popular in academia and industry because of the short provisioning time, low overhead, good scalability and reusability. But container networking based on kernel space interfaces and stack remains limited in performance and scalability.

This paper describes virtio for container technology, providing a scalable, high-performance, user space virtual network interface for L2/L3 VNFs and a customizable stack for L4+ VNFs. This allows NFV container instances to be easily integrated with OVS-DPDK and FD.io (or other vSwitch technology). This approach has been prototyped with DPDK. Initial performance testing shows a significant performance gain for both L2/L3 and L4+ VNFs comparing with existing kernel-based networking technologies. Besides, we also present next steps to gather industry feedback to help guide the future direction of this project.
