A Little Sneak Peek At The Future Of Low Latency Ethernet

Look at the table below, network latency has improved far more slowly over the last three decades than other performance metrics for commodity computers.

While the 5-10μs round-trip latency seem achievable within a few
years, what about to reduce RPC latency to 1μs in the long term?

And if we just integrate NIC functionality onto the main CPU die…

Stephen M. Rumble, Diego Ongaro, Ryan Stutsman, Mendel Rosenblum (one of the co-founders of VMware), and John K. Ousterhout at the Stanford University co-authored a paper called: It’s Time for Low Latency

If you want to sneak peek at the future of low network latency, that’s definitely a paper to read 😉
