Procera Networks Sets Performance Standard for NFV

Collaboration delivers maximum possible performance on Intel Open Network Platforms

FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global Subscriber Experience company, announced today that PacketLogic/V, Procera's NFV software solution, has demonstrated theoretical maximum performance running on Intel® Xeon® processor E5, Intel Xeon processor E5 v2, and Intel Xeon processor E5 v3-based commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms, eliminating performance barriers associated with deploying NFV solutions.

"Today's results are significant to our customers and the NFV community," said James Brear, president and CEO at Procera. "Not only have we demonstrated on Intel technology that high-performance applications such as PacketLogicTM can successfully perform as software-only solutions, but our customers now have a choice in deploying PacketLogic as hardware or software with no performance penalty."

This performance was achieved through participation in the Intel Network Builders program and was focused on demonstrating that high-performance NFV applications can be successfully deployed on Intel® architecture-based COTS platforms. 

"We are excited to see companies including Procera bring their solutions to Intel® architecture-based platforms," said John Healy, general manager Intel Software Defined Networking Division. "Optimizing compute-sensitive network functions for Intel technologies like these is key to realizing the full benefits of software-defined infrastructures."

Additionally, as part of the Intel Network Builders program, Procera intends to continue performance optimization of PacketLogic/V software ensuring that Procera solutions are optimized to deploy on Intel® Open Network Platform Server Reference Design systems.  These results will be contributed to the NFV Community via a white paper entitled "Optimizing NFV Performance with OVS-DPDK". Procera intends to demonstrate proof of concept environments leading to potential deployments of Procera solutions on Intel technology.

The performance testing consisted of side-by-side instances of test systems based on multiple generations of Intel Xeon processor-based systems. The test utilized the new Intel Xeon processor E5 2600 v3, running PacketLogic/V software in a virtual machine with 4x10 10Gbps Ethernet connections. The PacketLogic/V software had a complete complement of traffic detection and management rules enabled, simulating a real world deployment, and line rate traffic was sent into the VNF.  In each case the PacketLogic/V software performed at bare metal rates and was able to achieve maximum throughput of all of the available Ethernet interfaces in the system.

Note: Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
"Space Monkey by Vivent Smart Home is a product that is a distributed cloud-based edge storage network. Vivent Smart Home, our parent company, is a smart home provider that places a lot of hard drives across homes in North America," explained JT Olds, Director of Engineering, and Brandon Crowfeather, Product Manager, at Vivint Smart Home, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
