It can be deployed in diversified platforms including smart NICs, ARM-based white box servers, and various network and compute converged hardware systems.
Standard container deployment
The base of FusionNOS-Franework runs with a standard Linux kernel and container deployment environment. It also provides additional ARM-based DPDK packages, which is no different from developing and deploying applications on the x86 processors.
A variety of DPDK applications and commonly-used Linux drivers & applications developed on the x86 procssors can be quickly ported to ARM-based platforms (including Asterfusion Helium Smart NIC) through a simple re-compilation process.
Agile application development
The modular design of FusionNOS not only shorten application development cycle but also minimizes interference to existing business operations and hence increase agility of application developments.
