Accelerate key workloads, improve performance and agility, and enable new uses cases from the data center to the edge with Intel’s smartNICs.

Service providers and enterprises are investing heavily in large and hyper-scale data centers to deliver content, data processing, and communication services. The applications delivering these services must have access to high-speed storage and networking, be secure and run in virtualized and bare metal environments. However, infrastructure services such as virtual switching, security, and storage can consume a significant number of CPU cycles, especially at higher performance thresholds, reducing the number of cores available for revenue-earning services. Smart network interface cards (SmartNICs) can accelerate these infrastructure services, freeing up cores to increase network and application performance.
