Huawei has upgraded its status in FD.io, an industry group focused on developing solutions for data IO speeds for software-defined network infrastructures, from being a Gold to a Platinum member.
This upgrade shows the FD.io’s project and Huawei’s commitment to pursuing faster and open software-based packet processing.
FD.io offers the software-defined infrastructure developer community a landing site with multiple projects fostering innovations in software-based packet processing toward the creation of high-throughput, low-latency, and resource-efficient IO services suitable to many architectures (x86, ARM, and PowerPC) and deployment environments (bare metal, VM, container).
Huawei and other companies involved in driving software solutions can work with FD.io to address gaps that exist in the open networking stack to deliver dynamic data plane services for dynamic computing environments such as cloud, containers, and NFV. The design of FD.io is hardware, kernel, and deployment (bare metal, VM, container) agnostic.
“One of our focuses is to build a sound ecosystem with our community partners in order to enable Cloud Native Networking, and we truly believe that community collaboration will drive FD.io to a new level,” said Chenxi Wang, FD.io board member and VP of network strategy and ecosystem for Huawei, in a release.
The vendor’s upgrade to being a Platinum member follows the project’s recent Mini Summit, co-located with CloudNativeCon + KubeCon North America, held in Austin, Texas, on Dec. 5. Slides and video content from the event will be available in the coming weeks via the FD.io website.
