Cloud, Security, AI & IoT Are Driving the Need for Application-Specific Coprocessors

Niel Viljoen, Netronome's CEO, discusses the changes happening in the processor market, parallel processing and how coprocessors are a must now due to the demise of Moore's Law. For example, networking and security processing requirements are outstripping general purpose CPU performance. Coprocessors, such as in SmartNICs, and kernel-compliant acceleration are quickly becoming critical to ensure network performance-related service levels and server efficiency.
