Introduction of packet optimised and HW assisted multicore processors made it possible to push the performance and efficiency to a new level over a traditional CPU and NIC architecture. We have seen the processing environment transition from RTOS to a bare metal to Linux. Combining cloud compute and SDN technologies to packet optimised multicore SoC brings new challenges to maintain performance and efficiency in virtualised environment. Building a high performance and efficient data plane requires optimised processing, minimised SW overhead and maximal utilisation of HW resources.
