Turbocharge Your NGINX Deployment

Ahmet Houssein, VP of Marketing and Strategic Development at Solarflare

The modern‑day data center is a scale‑out, software‑defined infrastructure where generic servers are used with software applications to create compute servers, storage servers, and various appliance solutions. Today software load balancers are replacing purpose‑built hardware/software appliances in order to distribute data around the scale‑out environment.

In his session at NGINX Conf 2018, Ahmet describes how Solarflare’s XtremeScale technology with Universal Kernel Bypass accelerates NGINX performance, increasing queries per second (QPS) up to 4X compared to a kernel solution using a standard NIC and Linux kernel driver, while linearly scaling performance.
