Use Cases for FD.io

What is Vector Packet Processing (VPP)?

FD.io VPP is the Swiss Army knife of networking toolchains - enabling astounding software packet processing.

Relentless speed and scale.
Up to two orders of magnitude greater packet processing throughput.
VPP's host stack comprises packet, transport, session, and application layer protocols enabling entire networking and security functions to be injected into software packet processing.

Easily programmable.
FD.io is easily extensible through plugins or by building applications on top of the FD.io VPP API.

Deploy anywhere.
Bare metal, VM or container. x86, ARM, and PowerPC architectures.

The future of packet processing. Now.
