Providing faster page loads, leading to higher capacity

Solarflare’s Onload Solution Improves
Performance, CPU Efficiency and Scalability

Web services scale entirely based on their capability. Solarflare delivers better networking through jitter-free, improved response times, by utilizing modern kernel bypass techniques.

While kernel-based drivers (and their context switches and buffer copies) inhibit web server performance, Solarflare’s Onload provides the maximum performance.

The Solarflare Performance Advantage

The Problem: Kernel IOPS Impact

Web server scalability utilizing kernel-based networking, is limited in efficiency due to large numbers of memory copies, lots of context switching, high interrupt rate, and lock contention. This limitation requires a large number of web servers to manage the load.

The Solution: Onload from Solarflare

Solarflare’s Onload software acceleration allows web servers to handle larger peak loads, improved quality of service, and deliver deterministic response times. This enables the presentation tier to realize lower costs, while creating unprecedented service levels.

Why Onload is the Right Answer for Web Hosting

Reduces Memory Copies

Eliminates Host CPU Context Switches

Traffic is Intelligently Steered to the Proper Core

Dramatically Improved Socket Reuse Capabilities
