Netronome Outlines Acceleration Techniques for Carrier NFV Applications at the Linley Tech Carrier Conference

Netronome, the leading provider of data plane processing solutions for software-defined networks (SDN), today announced that one of their industry experts will discuss network functions virtualization (NFV), its implications on carrier system designs and the relationship to software-defined networking (SDN) in today’s networks at the Linley Tech Carrier Conference on June 11, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara, Calif.

“SDN and NFV are two emerging areas where OEMs and ODMs are using x86 based architectures for networking applications,” said Bob Wheeler, principal analyst at The Linley Group. “Netronome has long espoused using their flow processors as coprocessors to the x86 in these designs, making its NFP-6xxx based FlowNICs and Flow Environment software well suited for these new growth segments.”

Daniel Proch, vice president of product management at Netronome, will present, “Network Function Acceleration for COTS Servers,” during the Network Processors and Accelerators for NFV track. This presentation will focus on the challenges in using COTS server platforms to house high-touch virtualized networking functions. It will also describe acceleration and offload techniques to scale these networking and security application platforms to extreme throughputs.

The two-day, single-track conference focuses on system design for wired and wireless infrastructure including Carrier Ethernet, optical transport, broadband infrastructure, and wireless base stations.

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps for delivering enhanced customer experience (with mobile and cloud adoption), how to accelerate development and management of SoE app APIs with API management.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data. However, to capitalize on the cost-efficiencies and time-to-value opportunities of analytics in the cloud, big data and cloud technologies must be integrated and managed properly. Pythian's Director of Big Data and Data Science, Danil Zburivsky will explore: The main technology components and best practices being deployed to take advantage of data and analytics in the cloud, Architecture, integration, governance and security scenarios and Key challenges and success factors of moving data and analytics to the cloud
For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity. The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properly managed, is poised to bring about a digital transformation to enterprise IT. We will discuss the trend, the technology and the timeline for adoption.
