A Terabit Secure Network Data-Plane
By The linux foundation | Apr 6 2021,
FD.io (“Fido”), relentlessly focused on data IO speed and efficiency supporting the creation of high performance, flexible, and scalable software defined infrastructures, today announced support for terabit rates of IPsec, as well as a billion packets per second of IPv4 routing at scale. Architectural improvements in 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors including PCIe bandwidth increase and overall decrease in cycles-per-packet due to CPU micro-architecture improvements combined with FD.io software deliver significant price-performance gains for both cloud- and appliance-based software router and secure networking solutions.
FD.io offers the software defined infrastructure developer community a landing site with multiple projects fostering innovations in software-based packet processing towards the creation of high-throughput, low-latency, and resource-efficient I/O services suitable to many architectures (x86, ARM, and PowerPC) and deployment environments (bare-metal, VM, …
