Introducing Virtlet: VMs and Containers on one OpenContrail network in Kubernetes — a new direction for NFV?
Virtlet is a Kubernetes CRI (Container Runtime Interface) implementation for running VM-based pods on Kubernetes clusters.
When it comes to NFV, Packets Per Second (PPS) is often overlooked, but it’s vitally important. How do you get the most of it over OpenContrail in OpenStack?

Load Balancers are very important part of cloud and OpenStack Neutron has enabled to use LbaaS features since release Grizzly. However upstream implementation with OpenvSwitch/HAProxy does not provide High Availability by design. SDN OpenContrail provides …

Normally, we’re talking about hardware–as long as you have the proper drivers, you can use pretty much any hardware to run your OpenStack cloud–but it also applies to additional systems such as Software Defined Networking components.
