Unikernel + SRIOV on NFV


#1

What type of network performance do we expect from NFV Platforms with MirageOS Unikernels.
Most network virtual functions like firewall and LB operate at high throughput. OVF might not suffice the needs.
Is it possible to expose hardware nics to unikernels using PCIE passthrough or SRIOV?

Hi @bhushan, thanks for the question. Have you already looked over the post from Ericsson? http://unikernel.org/blog/2016/unikernel-nfv-platform

I’ll ask Wassim and Heikki to comment here.
