Cloud-native, containerized virtual network functions (VNFs) are among the hottest topics in the industry. In moving from “desiring a cloud-native VNF” to building one it has become clear that there is no appropriate platform to build on. Project “Ligato” (https://ligato.github.io/) has set out to change this. Ligato is an open source platform for creating cloud-native VNFs.

In this talk, we’ll provide the motivation and background for developing Ligato, describe its the architecture, and provide examples or real-world use cases. We will compare the performance and scale of Ligato-based VNF deployments with the performance and scale of VNFs deployed in other environments, such as OpenStack.
