Intel® ONP server is a reference architecture that integrates open-source and hardware ingredients optimized for SDN/NFV. This reference architecture eases solution development and accelerates SDN/NFV adoption and deployments in telecom, enterprise, and cloud.
The Intel® ONP server software stack consists of released open-source software based on the work done in community projects, including contributions made by Intel. Intel addresses open-source software integration gaps and showcases the capabilities of an open source foundation for developing virtualized network functions on Intel® architecture. It enables industry-leading manageability by exposing health, state, and resource availability, for optimal workload placement and configuration.
Key open-source software ingredients forming the Intel ONP server software stack:
OpenStack*—Manages and orchestrates applications running on network nodes
OpenDaylight*—Enables programmability of networks of any size and scale
DPDK—Accelerates packet processing on general-purpose processors
Open vSwitch*—Performs virtual, multilayer network switching
Linux*/KVM—Provides operating system and hypervisor support
