It is the only event dedicated to the skyrocketing SmartNICs market.

Panel: C-103: Panel on Optimizing SmartNIC Applications

Organizations routinely face the challenge of getting applications to run faster. One common problem is a slow network stack. Should enterprises replace the processor with a faster model? How can decision-makers tell if SmartNIC chips are state-of-the-art? Should they replace or upgrading the message-passing mechanism that starts up the SmartNIC and moves its results? These are all vital questions that affect application and network performance.

Attendees will learn:

  • Key reasons for network latency
  • How to evaluate SmartNICs based on current standards
  • How to overcome latency at the host level
  • What tools are available to predict performance gains from offloading
