Fast Lanes and Speed Bumps in the Quest for Maximum Network Performance - Bruce Tolley, Solarflare

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With Ethernet server adapters running at 40 gigabits per second, Linux users are still determining the best way to connect network servers to keep up with these speeds and maximize network performance. While the move from 10G to 40G sped up Ethernet 4X, the move from PCIe 2.0 to 3.0, just sped up the nserver bus 2 x. This presentation will look at the network interface and the server bus from a standards perspective, and present an overview of what is possible over the next 2 to 3 years to get the maximum throughput through servers with PCIe 2.x or 3.0 busses. We will then look forward and provide the best strategy for approaching the release of PCI Gen 4. With an update from Intel on how soon PCI Gen 4 enabled servers may be arriving, we will discuss how to properly plan your networks for the future.
