RDMA iWARP runs over TCP/IP and works with all Ethernet network infrastructure that supports TCP/IP. RDMA RoCEv2 operates on top of UDP/IP and provides low latency and high throughput as well. Intel Ethernet® 800 Series supports both RDMA iWARP and RoCEv2, which are selectable via software per port for low latency, high throughput workloads.
Hyperconverged Solutions with Intel® Ethernet 800 Series
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) integrates elements of a traditional data center using virtualization to deliver a single platform with a unified management plane. HCI is a cost-effective way to scale network capacity and performance.
Intel® Ethernet 800 Series, with support for Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA), meets the demands of HCI, through higher throughput, lower CPU utilization, and lower latency.
