The expansion of data is forcing us to reimagine our data centers at the hardware and systems levels

Almost all of our information is now being digitized, forcing us to reimagine how data centers are built, down to the hardware and systems levels. An emerging data center trend is the rise of the SmartNIC: a programmable accelerator that accelerates and offloads an increasing number of tasks from the server CPU.

To achieve the best balance of performance, efficiency, and cost, SmartNICs require powerful, programmable, and flexible hardware. This is where FPGAs come in. To ensure that the SmartNICs of the future can handle data in a way that is efficient, low latency, and secure, FPGAs are going to be a critical component. Watch this webinar, “The Rise of the SmartNIC”, to learn how Achronix’s FPGAs are poised to enable the SmartNICs of the future.

In this webinar, Scott Schweitzer, Achronix Director of SmartNIC Product Planning and Jon Sreekanth, CTO of Accolade discussed:

  • ⚙️ SmartNIC architecture for 100GbE and beyond
  • ⚙️ Why the Data Plane needs to be dynamically programmable
  • ⚙️ The distinction between packet and flow functions
  • ⚙️ Why simply adding a sea of Arm cores in the Data Plane will not scale
  • ⚙️ The need for a highly performant on-chip network
  • ⚙️ Plus more Q&A from the live audience
