Hardware Accelerated Blockchain Operations

Presented by

Parmeshwr Prasad, Dell; Olga Buchonina, Chair SNIA Blockchain Storage Technical Work Group, ActionSpot

About this talk

The storage industry is working on ways to meet the demand for the very high throughput required for the volume of transactions per second in Blockchain operations. There have been numerous advancements in Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) logics to improve the number of transactions per second for Blockchain operations. But these FPGA/ASIC improvements will not be sufficient for increasing the demand of hardware resources required for Blockchain. Smart network interface cards (NICs) offload low-level functions from server CPUs, dramatically increasing network and application performance, offloading all network related processing. In this webcast, you will learn: • The features of a Smart Network Interface Card (SMART-NIC) and how this will improve Blockchain transactions • Why using SCM is ideal for in-memory databases • Advantages of direct data movement without involving filesystems • Benefits of using SCM to improve Blockchain transactions
