Enhancing Performance and Security of Mission Apps with Enhanced Networking

Presented by

Scott Schweitzer, Bob Gourley

About this talk

It has been said that latency breeds contempt, this is especially true in the defense and intelligence communities where seconds can be the difference between life and death. In order to keep pace with rapidly evolving mission demands, agencies are constantly advancing their capabilities in the areas of distributed analytics and private cloud. Today, agency compute infrastructures rely on networking, not only for the delivery of content to end users, but increasingly for the distributed real-time processing of mission critical data. However, the server market, once dominated by differentiated offerings from a myriad of OEMs, has been commoditized by the adoption of virtualization and cloud computing technologies and services. While this commoditization has led to countless new analytic capabilities, it has also shifted the focus away from the hardware components and onto the software stack which has, in turn, created inefficiencies in both the overall performance and security of deployed systems. Join us to learn more about how enhanced networking capabilities from Solarflare can provide Agencies with a cost effective means of natively enhancing the performance and security of mission systems and applications.
