In this tutorial we will show detailed instructions and debugging info, in order to deploy a DPDK enabled OVS on an Openstack Newton environment, on Ubuntu 16.04.
First and foremost you must have a working Openstack Newton environment with OVS networking.
Secondly you need to have a DPDK enabled OVS, built and running on your system.
The easy way to do that is to just download and configure the official package.
Following these instructions:
https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-open-vswitch-with-dpdk-on-ubuntusudo apt-get install openvswitch-switch-dpdk 1 sudo apt-get install openvswitch-switch-dpdk sudo update-alternatives --set ovs-vswitchd /usr/lib/openvswitch-switch-dpdk/ovs-vswitchd-dpdk 1 sudo update-alternatives --set ovs-vswitchd /usr/lib/openvswitch-switch-dpdk/ovs-vswitchd-dpdk This will install the ovs with dpdk in it. But we also need to add More >
Single Root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) in networking is a very useful and strong feature for virtualized network deployements.
SRIOV is a specification that allows a PCI device, for example a NIC or a Graphic Card, to share access to its resources among various PCI hardware functions:
Physical Function (PF) (meaning the real physical device), from it a number of one or more Virtual Functions (VF) are generated.
Supposedly we have one NIC and we want to share its resources among various Virtual Machines, or in terms of NFV various VNFCs of a VNF.
We can split the PF into numerous VFs and distribute each one to a More >
In this post we will show how to configure a compute node in OpenStack to launch Docker containers. We assume that you already have a working OpenStack installation. The configuration we describe below worked for OpenStack Juno, while the controller and compute nodes were running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.Install Docker and Docker driver for OpenStack on the compute node

In the frame of the EU funded ICT T-NOVA Project, Medianetlab will host one of the project’s pilot sites. The project has presented an initial reference demonstrator architecture based on the integration of Openstack and Opendaylight constituting the Virtualised Infrastructure Manager for the Network Function VIrtualisation Infrastructure (NFVI. The first take on T-NOVA high-level architecture of the project is presented in the public deliverable D2.21.
Medianetlab provides lessons learned and guidelines used for the appropriate deployment from scratch of ODL, plus Openstack over Ubuntu using GRE networking. The setup and the details of the deployment setup and configurations used are More >
