Cloud computing is exploding and the industry is grappling with an accelerating pace of technology innovation. Hyperscale data centers are breaking the traditional definitions of servers and networking while rapidly scaling performance. Optimal performance and power efficiency now demand heterogeneous computing, making the rack-scale platform more open than ever before. Carriers are adopting SDN and NFV, replacing purpose-built equipment with processor-centric designs that run virtual network functions. This environment is turning everything on its head, with innovation trumping traditional application compatibility, in turn leading to new opportunities and unique solutions.

This single-track event is the only one of its kind focused on the processors, accelerators, Ethernet controllers, new memory technologies, and interconnects for cloud computing and networking.
