In conjunction with our partner Converge! Network Digest, AvidThink is pleased to announce our fifth site in the Next-Generation Infrastructure series: the 2020 Next-Gen Infrastructure Acceleration Resource Site and Report.
The Next-Gen Infrastructure Acceleration Report provides technology readers with perspectives and insights on industry vendors like 6WIND, AMD, Cisco Systems, Ethernity Networks, Fungible, Intel, Marvell, Napatech, Netronome, NVIDIA Networking (Mellanox), Pensando, VMware, Xilinx, and more! It also covers hyperscale innovators in the accelerated networking space including AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, as well as perspectives from analysts like Dell’Oro and 21K Consulting and end-users like Digital Realty, Evoque Data Center Solutions (AT&T spinout).
Back in 2012, when carriers teamed up to launch what would become Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), they envisioned that the virtualized networking workloads would run on the same type of standard servers as they were deploying in their IT data centers. However, it became apparent that the workloads imposed too much CPU overhead. CSPs started considering acceleration technologies such as fast-path software, Smart Network Interface Cards (SmartNICs), Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and the newly-minted Data Processing Unit (DPU). The 2020 Next-Gen Infrastructure Acceleration Report discusses infrastructure acceleration technologies adopted by these CSPs and explores the products available from leading vendors.
Our report covers the following aspects of infrastructure acceleration
- Next-Generation Workloads for Next-Generation Use Cases
- 5G Services
- Edge Compute
- Storage Use Cases
- Data Analytics and AI
- Key Infrastructure Acceleration Technologies
- Software Accelerators: DPDK, VPP
- Semiconductor Platforms: SmartNICs with FPGA, NPU, GPU, DPU
- Infrastructure Acceleration in Public Clouds
- Vendor Solutions
- What’s Next for Infrastructure Acceleration
We would like to thank all the organizations for agreeing to speak with us about their infrastructure acceleration technologies, and our sponsors for making this possible.
If you would like to learn more about how to participate in our upcoming resource sites on Edge, SD-WAN, Network Automation, or Data Center Networking contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, we invite you to download our latest report on next-gen infrastructure acceleration from the site and learn about our views on infrastructure acceleration.
