6WIND Debuts 195 Gbps Accelerated Virtual Switch Demo At Open Networking Summit in Santa Clara

Open vSwitch (OVS) is widely used by open source hypervisors to perform switching for virtual machines (VMs). However, OVS runs in the hypervisor, which can experience bottlenecks due to the Linux kernel networking stack. 6WIND’s packet processing software, 6WINDGate, can accelerate the virtual switch function by 10X without any change to OVS. 6WINDGate software uses Intel® DPDK to bypass the Linux kernel stack and provides its own stack, including additional Layer 2-4 protocols such...

What’s The Difference Between SDN and NFV?

Posted on Jan 20, 2014 in Cloud Infrastructure, Data Plane Acceleration, High Availability, Industry Trends, Network Protocols, Networking Performance, Software Defined Networking

What’s The Difference Between SDN and NFV?

By Kelly LeBlanc, VP of Marketing for 6WIND   Most industry watchers agree that the networking industry is transforming from a hardware-centric approach to a software-driven model. A few analysts are using the word metamorphosis to describe the scope of this transformation. As you will recall from your high-school biology class, metamorphosis means a profound change in form, as in from a caterpillar to a butterfly. While it is difficult for the capital-intensive telecommunications...
