The birth of SmartNICs -- offloading dataplane traffic to...software

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The next generation of network controllers will allow users the ability to take control of a set of processor cores that can inspect, drop, and forward network traffic before the standard server processors need to touch the traffic. Thus, data center operators can move their OVS workload currently running on the server onto the controller. This is valuable as all data-plane traffic is offloaded to the controller and can provide network isolation and security enforcement for bare-metal servers. The talk will include current SmartNIC deployment examples and performance data for software OVS running on the controller.
