The storage market continues to grow and new capabilities are needed to move, manage, and protect stored data. Storage processing features—such as virtualization, data protection, data security (encryption), and data compression—are essential to increase storage capacity. In addition, storage solutions are rapidly adopting PCIe*-based non-volatile memory express (NVMe*) while moving serial interconnects continue. Protocols such as Fiber Channel, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), and Serial ATA (SATA) and NVMe* dominate the storage protocol landscape.
With feature enhancement comes a need to do more with less. SoC solutions allow you to consolidate functions into a single silicon solution. The combination of the high-speed transceivers, dense logic, and deep memories of Intel® FPGAs coupled with the intellectual property (IP) solutions from us and our partners allow you to easily create an ideal solution for online, nearline, and offline storage. Intel® Stratix® series, Arria®, Cyclone®, and MAX® devices are invaluable to storage system architects. These platforms allow you to develop extremely flexible applications quickly, efficiently, and affordably. They allow you to craft unique, scalable, and optimized application-centric processing solutions for SAN and NAS appliances.

SmartNIC technology reduces server overhead by offloading infrastructure work usually performed by CPU cores to the SmartNIC itself. SmartNICs can provide better performance than host-based apps and allow for changes in network technology at the speed of software. Intel® FPGAs can be used in SmartNIC technology to free up CPU cores through vSwitch, storage, encryption, and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) offloads. Intel is a longtime leader in Ethernet connectivity solutions, including our advantage to combine the compute power of advanced Intel® FPGA, ASIC technology, and Xeon D, offloading CPU-intensive storage protocols to the SmartNIC for over-Ethernet storage. This provides a significant total cost of ownership (TCO) savings for service providers, as the server’s CPU cores are more efficiently utilized for IaaS and SaaS applications. In this way, Intel’s advanced FPGA technology is positioned to empower SmartNIC use cases to cut costs and maximize efficiency.
