  • Receiving Packets at the Speed of Light : Data Plane Acceleration for modern network when the amount of time to process packets decreases to as little as 6.7ns per packet at 100Gb/s. A memory barrier can cause stalls of 7ns or more strategies must be devised to mitigate in order to avoid wasting bandwidth. 
  • Multi-Host Technology in OCP-Server Track : Mellanox ConnectX-4 (100GbE)+Multiple Heterogeneous Hosts (x86, POWER, ARM, GPU) [slides]
  • slimFly : high-performance cost-effective network topology that approaches the theoretically optimal network diameter.
  • Kafka REST proxy : making it easy to connect to a Kafka cluster
