FDS - FastDataStacks

  • Proposed name for the project: FastDataStacks
  • Proposed name for the repository: fds

Project description

Project “FastDataStacks” creates and composes a set of scenarios which include the virtual forwarder supplied by the FD.IO project. The project also provides required enhancements to individual components such as SDN controllers or installers to allow for the scenario composition.


Initially FastDataStacks creates a scenario using OpenStack, OpenDaylight, and OpenVPP. The picture below shows the key components involved in the scenario. The project also includes installation and test procedures of this scenario.

Key work items include:

  • Create an ODL VPP/Netconf renderer for OpenDaylight GBP (Group based policy) for L2/L3 (v4/v6) to interface with OpenVPP.
  • Enhancements to ODL Neutron to allow for seamless integration with OpenVPP.
  • Enhancements to OpenStack ODL driver to allow for seamless integration with OpenVPP (e.g. support for vhost-user with non OVS switches, support for more reliable synchronization); Results of the OPNFV NetReady project are leveraged.
  • Testing (provide for Functest, Yardstick, etc. tests, consider tests which evaluate specific functionality of the data-path like encapsulation/decapsulation, address translation, etc.).
  • Integration into installers.
  • Add support for storage endpoints.
