Smart NIC is getting more and more important. Faster networking and data center impose too much networking overhead on the CPU cores, not a doubt, the compute virtualization, software-defined storage (SDS), and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and other network applications, make this problem worse, as they create more east-west traffic.
Smarter NICs – IEI PulM series can resolve all this virtualization and packet processing faster, more efficiently, and at lower cost than standard CPUs. It is ideal for users want to, for instance, build up a network server with virtual machine and provide storage function.
IEI provides four brands of NIC from Aquantia, Intel, Broadcom, Mella-nox, and with 1G, 2.5G, 5G, 10G or 25G different kinds of speed.
