Netronome Flow Processors Bring Intelligence to the SDN Edge at Linley Tech Data Center Conference 2013

Netronome, the leading developer of network flow processors, today will discuss new processor requirements and system design implications driven by software defined networking (SDN) at the Linley Tech Data Center Conference 2013 taking place February 5 - 6 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara, California.

Niel Viljoen, chief development officer and founder of Netronome will present, "The SDN On-Ramp,” on February 5 at 10:20 a.m. An entrepreneur and veteran of the network communications industry, Viljoen will discuss how SDN is revolutionizing the way networks are designed and the growing importance of flow-aware intelligence at the SDN edge.

“Data center networking is undergoing a vast transformation in order meet the cost, manageability, and performance demands of today’s data-intensive applications," said Viljoen. “This change is driving a new network architecture which enables low cost silicon to form a simple, high capacity data center fabric while flow processors service the intelligent networking applications located at the edge of the SDN.”

“Given the latest advancements in data center and carrier networks, we are excited to watch industry experts share their diverse perspectives on SDN, virtualization and network convergence,” said Jag Bolaria, senior analyst at the Linley Group. “We look forward to hearing Niel discuss the future of intelligent networking, and the newest practices for data center SDN deployments.”

Powered by 96 packet processing cores and 120 multi‐threaded flow processing cores and over 100 hardware accelerators operating at up to 1.2 GHz, Netronome’s NFP‐6xxx brings breakthrough performance to a broad range of network, security and content processing applications used in 10-400 Gbps networks designs. The NFP‐6xxx delivers 200 Gbps of packet processing with deep packet inspection, network and security processing, and I/O virtualization for millions of simultaneous flows and is an Intel 22nm 3D Tri-gate design.

The two-day conference focuses on processors, components and interconnects for data center networking and servers. For more information about the Linley Tech Data Center Conference 2013 visit: http://www.linleygroup.com/data-center-conference

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
