IDIO: Network-Driven, Inbound Network Data Orchestration on Server Processors


Researchers at the University of Kansas have created an intelligent, direct input/output (IDIO) architecture to help data move efficiently between processor cores and memories. New, high-bandwidth network interface cards, capable of transferring hundreds of Gigabits per second, are now being integrated into the servers of next-generation data centers and creating a large amount of pressure on the server’s memory subsystem.
Experiments show that this new IDIO architecture significantly reduces data movement, provides last-level cache isolation, and improves tail latency for receive-intensive network applications.


Market Application

This technology is useful for data management, particularly in data centers.
