Comparison of Datapath Acceleration Methods Using Netronome SmartNIC

Toyota Info Technology Center

Demand to define data plane behavior to accelerate various workloads specific to each use case is growing. The purpose of this project is to elaborate different approaches of datapath acceleration (such as OVS, SmartNIC programmability, P4), and check feasibility of each approach from various point of views such as datapath flexibility, ease to program, ease to operate.
