Wind River announced support, training and services for the development of applications based on the Intel Data Plane Development Kit (Intel DPDK). These offerings are immediately available to customers developing on any Linux operating system to help them create cost-effective, high-performance networking solutions based on the latest Intel processors. 4G networks and the constant flood of mobile devices have contributed to an ongoing data traffic explosion. Network equipment providers must deliver greater packet throughput and handle data more intelligently in order to accommodate a relentlessly stressed network. The combination of Intel multi-core platforms and the Intel DPDK, a set of data plane libraries designed for high-speed networking, can achieve high levels of packet processing. Wind River Linux is currently fully integrated with Intel DPDK for built-in high-performance optimizations for fast packet processing.
Wind River helps customers build, integrate and manage their Intel DPDK solutions with customized services and support. Wind River services for Intel DPDK include architecture consulting, design and integration, protocol porting, performance tuning and validation. Wind River’s support offerings for Intel DPDK include standard and premium support. Premium support includes a dedicated team of managers and engineers, service level agreements, detailed reports and extensive onsite coaching assistance. Wind River Test Management and Wind River Simics simulation tools also work seamlessly with the Intel DPDK and Wind River Linux as well as many other Linux distributions. Wind River can also provide trainer-led education courses with hands-on labs covering Intel DPDK APIs and configurations.
