Lessons Learnt from Telco NFV deployments with SR-IOV

In this presentation, we will describe the limitations that SR-IOV networking has and the ways to overcome these. We will discuss the issues that customers are facing in OpenStack to have high throughput traffic with SR-IOV like:

  • Use of correct Nova Filters
  • Link Redundancy
  • VLAN Tagging
  • Link Monitoring
  • Packet Monitoring
  • VM Migration

We will describe the lesson learned from the real-world deployments with SRIOV on OpenStack.


What can I expect to learn?

This presentation takes a deep dive into challenges faced by CSPs and the solutions when using SR-IOV Networking on OpenStack.

What will be covered?

  • How the Nova Filters work in case of SR-IOV. What filters should be there for the SR-IOV use case to get the best performance?
  • How to achieve Link Redundancy with SR-IOV.
  • How support of VLANs with Link Redundancy causes issues and how to overcome this.
  • How Physical Link monitoring is done in SR-IOV
  • Packet Monitoring Challenges with SR-IOV. Why Tap-as-a Service is not an option here.
  • Real world telco customer deployment scenarios and lessons learned.
