Contributions To OpenStack From Cavium

The Cavium suite of FastLinQ® Performance Ethernet Adapters and Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) interoperate with the OpenStack cloud operating system for networking as well as block, file and object storage. The core networking and storage services provided by QLogic products enable OpenStack users to focus on building scalable applications and services with a robust underlying infrastructure.

For networking connectivity under Neutron, Cavium FastLinQ® Ethernet Adapters support a comprehensive list of virtualization and multi-tenant services, including Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) and Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) offloads for the most sophisticated enterprise data centers, as well as private, public, and hybrid cloud deployments. Cavium adapters also support fully offloaded iSCSI and the highest performance Fibre Channel over Ethernet transports in the industry to guarantee peak workload service-level agreements (SLAs) for performance-sensitive applications, with minimal consumption of expensive processing resources.  


To simplify the deployment of Cavium adapters in OpenStack environments, administrators can utilize the following helpful resources:

• Interoperability Guides or "cookbooks" of proven solutions configured with Cavium adapters for OpenStack

• Automated configuration scripts to simplify deployment

• The Cavium QConvergeConsole® adapter management suite gives operations staff visibility into relationships between physical interfaces and the virtual services running over them through comprehensive topology mapping adds powerful capabilities alongside the OpenStack dashboard


Cavium solutions are compatible with OpenStack Keystone, Neutron, Nova, Cinder, Glance and Swift services for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) applications. Cavium offers a comprehensive portfolio of 10, 25 and 100Gb Ethernet solutions that take I/O performance to unprecedented levels in OpenStack environments!
