6WIND Integrates with Mirantis OpenStack for NFV

6WIND announced integration with Mirantis OpenStack to simplify joint customer deployments for high performance data centers and Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI).

Specifically, 6WIND Virtual Accelerator, which is hypervisor acceleration software, will integrate an OpenStack Fuel plugin for increased application throughput and efficiency in KVM environments. Both companies have worked together to release a Mirantis certified 6WIND Virtual Accelerator Fuel plugin. Developed in open source, Fuel provides an intuitive, GUI-driven experience for deployment and management of a variety of OpenStack distributions and plugins.

Based on DPDK, 6WIND Virtual Accelerator provides a packet processing solution for a full-featured and high performance virtual networking infrastructure allowing:

  • High performance I/Os leveraging DPDK, with multi-vendor NIC support
  • High performance virtual switching (Open vSwitch and Linux bridge) and networking (Overlays, Filtering/NAT, IP Forwarding, IPsec)
  • Support for existing workloads through standard Virtio drivers

“Many Network Operators are working with Mirantis OpenStack as they transition to NFV,” said Kamesh Pemmaraju, VP of Product Marketing at Mirantis. ”The partnership between Mirantis and 6WIND expands the use cases for OpenStack NFV by leveraging Fuel to automate hypervisor scaling for critical high performance virtual networking requirements.”
