Is your deployment resilient to common data center performance issues? This blog looks at the issue of duplicate traffic in misconfigured environments – and considers the benefits of adding deduplication via a SmartNIC.
Lately, Napatech has been working on a full OVS offload implementation. See how we've achieved a 6x performance gain compared to a basic OVS+DPDK solution running on a standard NIC.
CPU-bound security applications are severely challenged to process an ever-increasing number of packets. In this blog, Chief Product Architect Alex Agerholm discusses how flow shunting can help address this performance bottleneck and explains how the next level of acceleration is achieved.
The new Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card (PAC) with Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA can now run Napatech firmware. Chief Technology Architect Michael Lilja explores Intel's OPAE framework and takes a closer look at the PAC hardware and Napatech value-add.
When you stop to think about it, the entire IT industry is driven by the premise that Moore’s law will continue to provide double the number of transistors per square inch every 18 months and thereby help us to keep up with the relentless growth in data to be processed. What happens when this is no longer true?
In continuation of his previous blog on the history, vision and challenges of NFV, Daniel Proch now moves on to discuss the solutions that are required to overcome those challenges.
This article is a first of a two-part series, where Danny Proch, VP of Product Management at Napatech, will be outlining the history of the NFV concept, and the challenges in realizing the vision, specifically in the context of 5G networks.
Combining product development with ongoing maintenance can offer a series of challenges from an organizational perspective. In his latest blog, Project & Business Process Manager Ulrik Møller looks at the typical setups, and weighs the pros and cons of each model.
When it comes to balancing long-term development and short-term customer needs it is all about finding the right process. In his first blog article, Ulrik Moller looks into the benefits of combining stage gate and agile process models for product development.
VPP - Vector Packet Processing is a open-source project with high community activity. How does it perform running on Napatech NICs?
