TelecomTV: Panel session on ‘Fast Data’ @ Intel Network Partner Builders Day

The Linux Foundation’s Fast Data ( is an open source project established earlier this year with the aim of building a cross-platform I/O services framework so that developers can rapidly develop the sort of high-throughput, low latency services that are required for (amongst other things) Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV). (Fido) is hardware-, kernel-, and deployment-agnostic so can run on physical servers, virtual machines and containers.

This distinguished panel – brought together at a recent Intel Network Partner Builders Day – discussed the vision and scope of the project, how it relates to and complements other open source efforts and where members are taking it in terms of proposed work items.
