High speed load balancing from the Linux Kernel Архитектуры, масштабируемость
Co-Founder and CEO of ZEVENET (formerly Zen Load Balancer) and Netfilter contributor. Developer of the load balancing infrastructure within Netfilter subsystem.
Bio: Laura García has a degree in Computer Science in Spain, entrepreneur and cofounder of the Open Source project ZEVENET. She has developed her professional career in big corporations like HP or Schneider Electric as a software engineer. She is a strong Open Source believer and she contribute actively as Linux kernel developer, specifically for the Netfilter subsystem.
The kernel provides an internal load balancer which has been used during decades and the performance is good enough for small and medium sized traffic loads, but also are well known the scalability problems and dependencies with other subsystems in order to be fully usable.
At ZEVENET, we've been working in the research and development of a high performance load balancing infrastructure at Linux Kernel side using the Netfilter subsystem via nftables user space tool.
Finally, we're going to present the new ZEVENET layer 4 core based on this new infrastructure and how it works.
