In this talk we describe Facebook’s ongoing experience deploying the Identifier-Locator Addressing (ILA) framework: an IPv6-only model for implementing per-process, location-independent addressing based on concepts originally developed in ILNP. The major benefits include logical addressing of application containers decoupled from physical infrastructure and the ability to uniquely name any process in the network. We present the motivation and concepts behind the ILA data and control planes and summarize our experience deploying it in the production, describing how we leverage the recent development in Linux kernel such as eBPF and XDP.
