Tolly Report: HPE NFV System

Helion OpenStack Carrier-Grade Performance & Reliability Powered by Wind River Titanium Cloud

Spirent Communications commissioned Tolly to evaluate the performance and reliability of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Helion OpenStack Carrier Grade (HCG) Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution powered by Wind River® Cloud™. Tolly evaluated the solution performance in various virtual switch configurations and benchmarked recovery time in a variety of scenarios, including VM live migration, LAG failure, compute, and controller failures. The solution delivered high-throughput, consistent performance, and effective responses to failure scenarios.
