The exponential rise in data volumes and variety of application workloads creates significant performance demands on virtualized cloud and data center infrastructures. To combat this, cloud providers have quickly moved their Ethernet networking infrastructures from 10Gb/s to 25Gb/s. However, not all 25GbE NICs are the same! In fact, some are “smarter”. 25GbE SmartNICs with full data plane offload capabilities provide even greater efficiencies that enable cloud infrastructures to free-up resources to support additional users and process more data.
