  • 7 benefits of Pliops XDP

    As the world moves online at an increasing pace, data and application workloads continue to grow exponentially. Unfortunately, processor performance isn’t. Increasingly, the overall server architecture cannot take full advantage of SSDs, making it more challenging to keep up with growing performance demands.

    Rather than expending more resources, companies need to work smarter - specifically by taking advantage of hardware accelerators that can deliver an order of magnitude for more efficient infrastructure.

    Access this data sheet to learn how acceleration using the Pliops Extreme Data Processor turns this potential into reality.
