The Fast Data (or fd.io) project is part of the Linux Foundation, and is dedicated to making open source
network services faster, more extensible and interoperable. Vector Packet Processing (VPP) is an fd.io
subproject utilizing DPDK to optimize packet processing. The VPP code base is still maturing, so when
VPP support became a requirement, it was time to take it to the next level – production-ready.
This talk will discuss the effort that it took to productize a still-maturing new technology, taking it from
the side streets to main street. We’ll start out with an overview of VPP, use cases, and then dive in to
specific problems that were encountered, and how they were tackled.
