Network Cloud Unicycle with OVS-DPDK support is an Akraino approved blueprint and is added as a new species to existing Akraino’ s Network Cloud Blueprint Family. This blueprint integrates Akraino feature project Support for OVS-DPDK in Airship which primarily focuses on up-streaming OVS-DPDK functionality in to the Openstack Airship project. This blueprint will address multiple edge usecase supporting virtual machines based workloads.
The primary usecase of Network Cloud Unicycle with OVS-DPDK blueprint is to support vRAN and 5G Core applications which requires high performance through-put with low latency. The blueprint will be evolved further to support multiple edge usecases including containerized workloads.
