Kaloom™ Virtual Switch

The Kaloom Virtual Switch (KVS) is an enhanced feature of the Software Defined Fabric™. It provides enhanced switching functionality that enables containers and virtual machines (VMs) running on application servers to communicate more efficiently. KVS delivers significant improvements over other existing virtual switch solutions on the market by providing key benefits to data center networking performance with regards to latency and data throughput. Furthermore, by interacting directly with Software Defined Fabric, KVS can leverage the Software Defined Fabric’s advanced networking functions and offload virtual switching functionality onto Software Defined Fabric, thus freeing up valuable resources from application servers.

As an enhanced feature within the Software Defined Fabric product family, KVS offers an innovative virtual switch solution for data center infrastructure providers (DCIPs) and virtual data center operators (vDCOs) such as telecom and cloud service providers, large enterprises, financial institutions, etc. It extends networking functionalities by directly communicating with Software Defined Fabric to offload the virtual switching functionality from the application servers and onto Software Defined Fabric, thereby delivering more efficient execution of traditional and Software Defined Fabric advanced network functions. As an optimized virtual switch replacement for OVS-DPDK, KVS provides key benefits in networks where it is deployed. Its use enables the minimization of compute resources, while reducing user space to user space latency and increasing data throughput.
