DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) for Linux VMs now generally available

Community Manager

Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) in an Azure Linux Virtual Machine (VM) that offers a fast user space packet processing framework for performance intensive applications that bypass the VM’s kernel network stack, is now generally available in all Azure regions!


DPDK provides a key performance differentiation in driving network function virtualization implementations, in the form of network virtual appliances (NVA) such as a virtual router, firewall, VPN, load balancer, evolved packet core, and denial-of-service (DDoS) applications. Customers in Azure can now use DPDK capabilities running in Linux VMs with multiple Linux OS distributions (Ubuntu, RHEL, CentOS and SLES) to achieve higher packets per second (PPS).
