Network Infrastructure Virtualization with Embedded Power Architecture KVM - Varun Sethi, Freescale & Balaji Patnala, Freescale

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Network virtualization can address the requirement to launch network services dynamically in a cloud data centre environment. For example, there could be a run time requirement to provide network load balancing between two VMs running on different physical servers. This can be handled efficiently, if a network appliance which handles traffic between both VMs responds to dynamic service requests.In this session we describe how these dynamic network service requirements can be handled on embedded Power Architecture appliances using KVM, libvirt and Openstack.This session would be useful for device manufacturers, ISVs and system vendors. They can understand how virtualization can be used for designing systems for data centre environment. Basic knowledge of virtualization would be helpful while attending the session.
