FD.io's Vector Packet Processor (VPP) is a fast, scalable layer 2-4
multi-platform network stack. It runs in `Linux Userspace <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_space>`_
on multiple architectures including x86, ARM, and Power architectures.
-VPP is built using the `Dataplane Development Kit (DPDK) <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Plane_Development_Kit>`_.
-VPP benefits include high performance, proven technology, modularity,
-and a rich feature set.
+VPP's high performance network stack is quickly becoming the network stack of
+choice for applications around the world.
+VPP is continually being enhanced through the extensive use of plugins. The
+`Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Plane_Development_Kit>`_
+is a great example of this. It provides some important features and drivers
+for VPP.
VPP supports integration with OpenStack and Kubernetes. Network
management features include configuration, counters, sampling and
-more. For developers, VPP includes plugin extensibility,
-high-performance event-logging, and multiple kinds of packet
-tracing. Development debug images include complete symbol tables, and
-extensive consistency checking.
