OpenStack is a very flexible platform for a wide variety of workloads. However default open source plugin uses OpenVswitch project which imposes throughput and latency constraints on network heavy applications.


SR-IOV based approach has been available for a while which accelerates throughput and reduces the latency while still preserving the ability to provide network segregation to OpenStack tenants. Up to now SR-IOV implementation has been limited to Mellanox hardware. This presentation will describe Mirantis effort to add SR-IOV support using a common Intel 82599 network chip and other enhancements to add ability to bond SR-IOV interfaces in the VM. These changes can provide high performance, low latency, multi-tenant networks using a commodity chip built into a large number of server platforms.
