Day One: Contrail DPDK vRouter

Inside the software-defined, high-performance, feature rich, open source Tungsten Fabric virtual router.

Let’s do SDN! By using DPDK as an open source data plane for Contrail/Tungsten Fabric vRouter, you’ll learn about DPDK and its related technologies (huge page, NUMA, CPU pinning, etc.) as well as the vRouter DPDK design and details on installation.

DPDK vRouter is one of the most important SDN data plane implementations and this book shows you how to increase its data plane performance, thus accelerating network applications and optimizing NFV and SDN data planes. It’s all here: six chapters and over a hundred illustrations to guide you through the world of SDN and Contrail Tungsten Fabric.

“This book is a must read for network software developers. It covers in great detail how Network Applications can be accelerated with Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK). In particular, it describes libraries, tools and techniques to optimize Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Network (SDN) data plane performance by more than a factor of ten. It is an excellent showcase of a close knit collaboration between Intel and Juniper engineers over many years to deliver high performance and cloud scale applications for the networking industry. I am impressed with its thoroughness and wealth of practical, hands-on information. In summary, this book rocks.” - Rajesh Gadiyar, Vice President and CTO, Network Platforms Group, Intel Corporation

“This is a superb book. Four Juniper engineers have combined their experience in working with DPDK and its use as an open source data plane for SDN (vRouter). Step-by-step the authors describe the innards of vRouter and show you how to configure, optimize, and troubleshoot one of the best SDN solutions in the marketplace. Congratulations to the authors, and to you the reader who are about to be impressed.”- Raj Yavatkar, CTO, Juniper Networks
