A New Logo: Using Generative AI, of course

Since we renamed the project to bpfman we are in need of a new logo. Given that the tech buzz around Generative AI is infectious, we decided to explore using generative AI to create our new logo. What we found was that it was a great way to generate ideas, but a human (me) was still needed to create the final design.

bpfd becomes bpfman

Bpfd is now bpfman! We've renamed the project to better reflect the direction we're taking. We're still the same project, just with a new name.

bpfman: A Novel Way to Manage eBPF

In today's cloud ecosystem, there's a demand for low-level system access to enable high-performance observability, security, and networking functionality for applications. Historically these features have been implemented in user space, however, the ability to program such functionality into the kernel itself can provide many benefits including (but not limited to) performance. Regardless, many Linux users still opt away from in-tree or kernel module development due to the slow rate of iteration and ensuing large management burden. eBPF has emerged as a technology in the Linux Kernel looking to change all that.
