Calico/VPP: Unlocking performance and innovation for large-scale Kubernetes clusters
The Vector Packet Processor (VPP) is a high-performance, open-source userspace network data plane, developed under the fd.io umbrella, that supports many standard networking features and is easily extensible using plugins. Calico’s VPP data plane allows managing highly available and high-performance networking applications in Kubernetes, and offers support for network policy, encryption via WireGuard or IPsec, and MagLev service load balancing.
In this session, Jerome Tollet (Cisco Systems) will talk about VPP and how to unlock performance and innovation for large-scale Kubernetes clusters using Calico’s VPP data plane.
