SmartNIC

SmartNIC

A network interface card (network adapter) that offloads processing tasks that the system CPU would normally handle. Using its own on-board processor, the smartNIC may be able to perform any combination of encryption/decryption, firewall, TCP/IP and HTTP processing. SmartNICs are ideally suited for high-traffic Web servers. See network adapter.
