VPP - Vector Packet Processing is a open-source project with high community activity. How does it perform running on Napatech NICs?
In his latest blog, Sven talks about the network traffic replay at 100G and its benefits in a test scenario.
FPGA has shown that it can provide significant acceleration and a high level of reconfigurability and doing all that with an efficient compute power per watt.
So where does all this lead and who is the winner?
In the run-up to SDN World Congress in The Hague, it is interesting to note that it was at this very show in Dusseldorf 5 years ago that the original NFV whitepaper was first presented. How time flies!
I am writing this blog article in continuation of my previous blog - “Future-proof FPGA platforms the longevity and upgradability”. In this blog entry, I discuss the available pluggable front port technology, complementing the flexible properties of the described future-proof FPGA-based SmartNICs. Here are the properties of front port technology that define its flexibility: Level of backward compatibility Number of link types supported Number of link rates supported Available lane breakout functionality The market is swamped with different IEEE/MSA defined front port formfactors, that currently support link speeds up to 400G. Only a reduced subset of these meet the physical outline limitations imposed by the PCIe standard. With focus on the high-end SmartNIC use case, this blog will focus on…
In the world of fin tech, data capture has never exactly been the sexiest area of development.
But as market participants ready themselves for a new wave of trading rules, and as competition among cutting edge trading firms has shown no sign of abating, the importance of data capture has taken on much greater significance.
Following on from my last blog - “History of Ethernet - New "Rules" and The Ongoing Evolution”, in this blog, I will be discussing the evolution of FPGA technology supporting FPGA based network acceleration cards (NACs).
Data processing and computing power are these days moving into the cloud, which is mainly a virtualized environment with huge flexibility and scalability achieved through a massive infrastructure...
