Netronome Announces Fall Extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) Webinar Series

Share:

Bi-Weekly Webinar Series to Provide Comprehensive Training on the
eBPF Architecture, Compiling eBPF Programs, Debugging and Diagnosing
Problems, Performance Tuning and Hardware Offload

Netronome, a leader in high-performance intelligent networking
solutions, announced today its three-part series of eBPF training
webinars running from September 11 through October 9, 2018. Operators
building infrastructures for hyperscale/cloud data center and enterprise
edge applications will learn basic and advanced fundamentals of eBPF,
how to compile and verify programs, tools and debugging, and finally,
how to marry the benefits of the eBPF framework with transparent
hardware acceleration via SmartNICs.

eBPF has shown increased attention and rapid adoption since its
introduction into the Linux kernel in 2014, and many useful eBPF
networking applications have been created by the Linux community; for
example DDoS mitigation apps, firewalls, load balancers, monitoring,
security and tracing. Programs using eBPF can be changed on the fly and
can be transparently offloaded to SmartNICs to dramatically improve
performance and efficiency.

"eBPF is an exciting and rapidly growing technology in the Linux kernel.
What is being produced within the kernel community stands to become a
massively powerful shift in networking, with more use cases and
innovations constantly being developed," said Nic Viljoen, associate
director of software engineering at Netronome. "Our eBPF webinar series
is tailored to help application developers and networking engineers
quickly get familiar with eBPF, the various toolsets, as well as how to
gain even further performance through hardware offload."

About Netronome

Netronome designs and markets server networking and coprocessor
platforms, including its market leading silicon accelerators, boards and
software, enabling customers to increase the efficiency and security of
their modern data center infrastructure. Netronome products reduce the
total cost of ownership (TCO) and drive significantly higher server
performance resulting in increased revenue per server for service
providers. The evolution of lower cost and standards-based
software-defined networking implemented in servers has enabled rapid
innovation and transformed the economics for data center compute and
networking. However, such new deployments continue to face significant
scaling and efficiency challenges with the rapid move from 10GbE to
25/50GbE and higher bandwidth network infrastructure requirements.
Netronome brings back much-needed scale and efficiency, without
compromising flexibility, simplicity or the speed of innovation needed
in today's cloud networks running businesses of all sizes. Netronome has
a global footprint and is headquartered in Santa Clara, CA. To learn
