NICA: AN INFRASTRUCTURE FOR INLINE ACCELERATION OF NETWORK APPLICATIONS
SmartNICs with integrated FPGAs (F-NICs) [19, 68, 89, 119] are an appealing platform for accelerating I/O intensive network applications. They have been increasingly deployed in data centers and public clouds [33, 66], e.g., in each MS Azure server, enabling line-rate throughput and low, predictable latency at high power efficiency [33]. Many hardware vendors, including Intel, have already announced F-NICs in their future offerings [98]. DOWNLOAD
