Kaloom and Red Hat

Kaloom has collaborated with Red Hat to build an automated and more easily deployable, next-generation, software-defined network fabric technology that interfaces directly with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat OpenStack Platform. Kaloom has the capabilities of scaling to 1000's of racks, with 100,000+ servers and its fabric essentially offloads data plane functions from virtual machines and containers to the fabric itself. It's fully P4-independent protocol programmable.

Kaloom’s solution can offload key data plane functions in 5G directly on the switch silicon, increasing throughput performance by 2x while delivering 7x lower latency than traditional data center networking solutions. The solution runs under the scenes atop of Red Hat technology, including Red Hat OpenShift as the core platform.
