vDPA, which stands for Virtio Datapath Acceleration, aims at providing
wire-speed and wire-latency L2 open and standard interfaces. The
fundamental idea of vDPA is to push the specification based virtio

After a short introduction to vDPA technology and a high level
presentation of both DPDK and Kernel alternatives, the presenters will
provide an update on DPDK's vDPA framework which was introduced two

Finally, the presenters will give an overview of the higher-level
picture, presenting the work being done with the Kubernetes community to
