Line rate hypervisor networking

Accelerated virtual switching (Open vSwitch and Linux bridge)

  Accelerated networking (Overlays for multi-tenancy, L3 routing, VRF, ACLs, NAT, IPsec, QoS, TCP offloads and more)

Ease of deployment and operation

Increase VM density and performance on COTS servers

Supports standard network management tools (OpenStack and SDN controllers)

Supports existing and unmodified workloads through standard Virtio drivers

Scalable software-based switching enables Service Chaining

High performance with no SR-IOV or PCI Passthrough

Popular use cases include uCPE and Software-defined Networking (SDN) virtual routing and switching solutions. It is deployed in the KVM hypervisor to offer a high performance alternative to SR-IOV and PCI passthrough that break virtualization.
