Cloud networking runs at seemingly improbable scale - millions of networks from different tenants flow, sometimes with tens of thousands of instances per network - all on the same physical substrate. Often the performance requirements are huge - expensive GPU-intensive compute jobs must be fed with data in order to keep them efficient.
