The Venue

“There is no doubt in my mind that SmartNICs are needed components of any modern cloud-based architecture. The proof is in the pudding: all cloud providers run some form of SmartNIC.” 

Silvano Gai, Fellow, Pensando Systems

ATTENDEES

Engineers and managers who are looking for ways to help meet performance challenges, handle the explosion in big data, provide the modularity and scalability today’s systems require, and develop solutions based on the latest software and interfaces.  Designers of enterprise networks, telecom systems, high-performance computing, financial systems, IoT, and mil/aero applications all know that SmartNICs will play a big role in their future.

 

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND THE SMARTNICS SUMMIT

SmartNICs have become the best way to offload network overhead. They reduce demands on system CPUs, allow for processing of data as it arrives, and enable rapid upgrades for new protocols. They provide large, scalable systems to handle more applications and big data. SmartNICs can also do complex tasks such as compression, pattern matching, and media processing. The SmartNICs Summit will help designers optimize networks for applications such as business analytics, AI/ML, and HPC.

 

Key Points:

SmartNICs make systems easy to change and update by simply replacing a NIC or revising its software.

SmartNICs increase scalability and modularity.

BACKGROUND

SmartNICs add intelligence and programmability to interface cards.  Their use cases include handling network overhead, performing common tasks such as compression, deduplication, encryption/decryption, load balancing, or media processing, speeding up VMs and containers, virtualizing and sharing flash storage, stopping security threats, accelerating hyperconverged infrastructure, and enabling software-defined networking (SDN) and  network function virtualization (NFV).  

 

WHY YOU SHOULD EXHIBIT AT SMARTNICS SUMMIT FAST-GROWING MARKET

Only event focused on the expanding SmartNICs market. Analysts such as Gartner and Dell’Oro Group expect the market to rise to $600M by 2024, or 23% of the total Ethernet adapter market. All the major clouds are using SmartNICs, and most other data centers and telcos will soon follow them. The Summit is an ideal way for vendors to show their long-term commitment to providing solutions.
