Video: How SDNs Will Tame Networks

In this video, Nick McKeown from Stanford presents: How SDNs Will Tame Networks. Networks are notoriously hard to debug. Today, we only have a rudimentary set of tools available, such as ping, traceroute, tcpdump, and netflow. These tools try to reconstruct the distributed state of the network in an ad-hoc fashion, while the state is […]

Video: A Low-Latency Library in FPGA Hardware for High-Frequency Trading

In this video, John Lockwood from Algo-Logic presents: A Low-Latency Library in FPGA Hardware for High-Frequency Trading (HFT). Recorded at the Hot Interconnects 2012 conference in Santa Clara. Current High-Frequency Trading (HFT) platforms are typically implemented in software on computers with high-performance network adapters. The high and unpredictable latency of these systems has led the […]
