Solarflare to Speak on "OpenOnload User-Level Network Stack" at Supercomputing 2012
Discussion highlights OpenOnload architecture for user-level networking, enables companies to receive de-facto standard for user-space protocol processing
Irvine, Calif.–November 13, 2012–Solarflare, the leading provider of application-intelligent networking I/O, today announced that Dave Parry, vice president of engineering, will speak at Supercomputing 2012 (SC12) on the OpenOnload architecture for user-level networking. The OpenOnload architecture is increasingly becoming the de-facto standard for user-space protocol processing of TCP and UDP, especially in latency sensitive applications. Parry will provide real world deployment-cases and performance measurements during this presentation.
Solarflare will also showcase their solutions for IEEE 1588 precision time, high-performance, network-attached storage, and their Performant Series of 10GbE server adapters, delivering industry-leading performance at a very cost-effective price point.
Solarflare is hosting, in Booth #3754 a three day series of technical talks about "Transforming the way applications use the network: New solutions and architectures for high performance computing" with speakers from Altera, Arista, Fusion-io, Gnodal, IBM, OpenFPGA, and Red Hat.
