Presentation: "Achieving 10X WAN Efficiency in Globally Distributed Applications"

Time: Thursday 10:30 - 11:20

Location: Regency

Abstract: Summary: Specialized hardware is giving architects new high-efficiency options to accelerate the WAN and
avoid “long fat network” problems. This session will explore how network processors, FPGAs, flash storage, ultra capacitors, and other exotic silicon is increasing the capabilities and performance of WAN-based applications. Specific use cases include Distributed Message Routing, Web Data Streaming, Sensor Nets,
and Active/Active Data Grid Replication.
