“B-201: Open Networking (Edge/Data Center Applications Track) – DPUs in Open Infrastructure Deployments”

April 28, 2022, 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

Presented by Frode Nordahl, Senior Engineer at Canonical

The success of smartNICs in hyper-scalers has led to the growing popularity of this cutting-edge technology, eventually finding its place in data centers in general. The capability to offload applications and functionalities that typically run on host servers to smart NICs has proven advantages in enhanced performance and programmability. Learn about how we improve OVN’s performance with SmartNIC DPUs during the session.
