Why Intel Wants a PISA Barefoot Networks


Silicon is, naturally, hugely important in the data centre as workloads grow ever-more demanding. But as more and more data flows through hyperscale data centres, so are interconnects, and network intelligence: these are crucial for numerous reasons, not least because a network outage can cost an investment bank user – by way of one example – millions per minute; yet current tools to identify network issues still often boil down to ping and traceroute: connectivity tools created over 20 years ago.

Despite this, the networks that are interconnecting servers in hyperscale data centres are typically built using fixed-function Ethernet switches: rapid
