SmartNICs to xPUs – Why is the Use of Accelerators Accelerating?
Thursday, May 19, 2022
11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET

As applications continue to increase in complexity and users demand more from their workloads, there is a trend to again deploy dedicated accelerator chips to assist or offload the main CPU. These new accelerators (xPUs) have multiple names such as SmartNIC, DPU, IPU, APU, NAPU. How are these different than GPU, TPU, CPU? xPUs accelerate and offload functions including math, networking, storage, cryptography, security, and management. This webcast will cover key topics about, and clarify questions surrounding, xPUs.

SMB3 Interoperability Lab at SDC EMEA
Tuesday, June 14 - Thursday, June 16, 2022

The purpose of this IO Lab is for vendors to bring their implementations of SMB3 to test, identify, and fix bugs in a collaborative setting with the goal of providing a forum in which companies can develop interoperable products. There are several new features that have recently been added to the SMB3 protocol.

Storage Life on the Edge: Accelerated Performance Strategies
Wednesday, June 15, 2022
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

Edge is the new frontier of compute and data in today’s world, driven by the explosive growth of mobile devices, work from home, digital video, smart cities, and connected cars. An increasing percentage of data is generated and processed at the edge of the network. With this trend comes the need for faster computing, access to storage, and movement of data at the edge as well as between the edge and the data center. Attend this SNIA Networking Storage Forum webcast on June 15, 2022 where we will discuss:

  • The increasing need to do more at the edge across compute, storage and networking
  • The rise of intelligent edge locations
  • Different solutions that provide faster processing or data movement at the edge
  • How computational storage can speed up data processing and transmission at the edge
  • Security considerations for edge processing

We look forward to having you join us to cover all this and more. We promise to keep you on the edge of your virtual seat!

xPU Accelerator Offload Functions
Wednesday, June 29, 2022
11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET

As covered in our first webcast “SmartNICs and xPUs: Why is the Use of Accelerators Accelerating,” we discussed the trend to deploy dedicated accelerator chips to assist or offload the main CPU. These new accelerators (xPUs) have multiple names such as SmartNIC, DPU, IPU, APU, NAPU.   

This second webcast in this series will cover a deeper dive into the accelerator offload functions of the xPU. We’ll discuss what problems the xPUs are coming to solve, where in the system they live, and the functions they implement, focusing on:

  •  Network Offloads  
  •  Security  
  • Compute  
  • Storage
