SoftGate is a self-operating VPC gateway. Depending on your performance needs, you can deploy SoftGate on any virtual or physical machine. SoftGate will apply DPDK-based network acceleration if a supported SmartNIC card is detected or otherwise will fall back to optimized Linux Kernel packet processing, using XDP and eBPF where applicable. This environmental adaptability makes SoftGate suitable anywhere between a home lab, AI/ML clusters, Edge sites, and large data center deployments.
SoftGate nodes run a Netris agent that understands when and how to properly auto-configure various well-known Linux Networking components such as FRR, WireGuard, NFTables, IPtables, DPDK, eBPF, XDP, and others. Our main job is not to move packets but to automatically configure the pieces to make your network work for you.
