Meituan.com, a market leader in online-to-offline (O2O) local life service platforms, offers a range of e-commerce services connecting millions of people. Due to rapidly increasing demand, Meituan needed to enhance the performance and efficiency of its data centers fast.
However, in addition to meeting user demand, the platform also wanted to keep costs low. This led them to deploying Intel’s OpenvSwitch with Data Plane Development Kit (OvS-DPDK), which offered clear benefits over their existing vSwitch (virtual switch), vanilla OvS.
Ovs-DPDK enables accelerated virtual switching, which has given Meituan greater manageability, as-well as significantly scaling up their performance capabilities. They were able to incorporate this into their existing infrastructure, bringing resource and cost benefits.
The high performance capabilities of OvS-DPDK give it powerful revenue generating potential. Since it can be added into an existing architecture, it gives CSPs the possibility to expand their businesses as quickly as possible.
