Chelsio T6 iWARP Adapters with Windows 10 Enterprise Client RDMA and Ryussi MoSMB SMB3 server: Enabling High-Speed/Low-Overhead Media and Entertainment (M&E) Workflows

Live Event on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at 10AM US PST.

The digital film is rapidly evolving to 4K and beyond. As the Media & Entertainment industry moves towards higher resolution and multi-camera mode of production, the need for high performance as well as high capacity storage devices is increasing like never before. This pressing need for fast and scalable storage is seen across the entire lifecycle of digital content Capture, Creation, Editing, Archiving and Distribution.

The Windows 10 Enterprise Client RDMA feature provides I/O-intensive desktop applications, such as Media/Entertainment (M&E) applications, with high-speed/low-overhead access to Windows Servers enabled by SMB Direct (iWARP) networking. Chelsio iWARP-enabled T5 and T6 Unified Wire adapters provide out-of-the-box support for Client RDMA. As a result, customers using Windows 10 Enterprise for professional applications will see significant response time and improvements while taking advantage of the ease of use and low cost of ownership of Chelsio iWARP.

The goal of this webinar is to provide an update regarding the benefits of Windows 10 Enterprise Client RDMA feature for M&E applications, review performance testing of Chelsio 100GbE Terminator 6 (T6) iWARP RDMA adapters with Windows 10 Enterprise Client RDMA feature enabling high-speed access to the Ryussi MoSMB SMB3 server on Linux using SMB Direct.

The following questions are addressed:

  • What are the hardware and software requirements for Windows Client RDMA deployment?
  • What are the advantages that the combination of T6 100GbE SMB Direct (iWARP)-enabled Windows 10 Enterprise Client RDMA and SMB Direct (iWARP)-enabled MoSMB on Linux provide?
  • What are the CPU utilization and response time differences between hardware-based iWARP and L2 NIC-based communication between Windows 10 Enterprise and Ryussi MoSMB Server?

Ned Pyle, Principal Program Manager, Windows Server and Storage, Microsoft; Bob Dugan, Director of Engineering, Chelsio and Sandeep Bhambani, CEO, Ryussi Technologies answered all these questions and more.
