Clear Containers is an Open Containers Initiative (OCI) “runtime” that launches an Intel VT-x secured hypervisor rather than a standard Linux container. An introduction of Clear Containers will be provided, followed by an overview of CNM networking plugins which have been created to enhance network connectivity using Clear Containers. More specifically, we will show demonstrations of using VPP with DPDK and SRIO-v based networks to connect Clear Containers. Pending time we will provide and walk through a hands on example of using VPP with Clear Containers.
