CASS Talks with José Azambuja, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil





In-Network Computing and Switch Virtualization are two known concepts that are yet to meet in a Programmable Data Plane. One the one side, virtualization has become the powerhouse for several networking concepts, from Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) to software switches, software-defined control planes, etc. On the other hand, In-Network Computing can delegate the performance of a set of operations on data flows (load balancing, aggregation/disaggregation, compression, etc.) from the end servers to programmable network devices. In spite of the progress achieved in combining these two powerful tools, the real potential of in-network virtualization remains untapped. This CASS Talk is the bar
