If you're going whitebox, I would check out Netgate's new product called
TNSR. It uses VPP for the data plane, which does all its processing in user
space, thus avoiding the inefficiencies of the kernel network stack. That's
particularly important at higher speeds like 40G or 100G.

Disclaimer: I have not tried it myself but I've only heard good things.
