Hardware-Defined Networking (HDN) explores the patterns that are common to modern networking protocols and provides a framework for understanding the work that networking hardware performs on a packet-by-packet basis billions of times per second.
“Today, massive compute problems such as machine learning are being tackled by specialized chips (GPUs, TPUs). So, how will specialized hardware handle the massive bandwidths from IoT devices to Mega-Scale Data Centers and equally massive bandwidths from those MSDCs to hand-helds? Here is just the book to find out: every time I open it I learn something new, something I didn’t know. Brian Petersen has taken a thoroughly modern snapshot of how it all comes together.”
“Brian Petersen has accomplished something quite remarkable with this book; he has distilled complex and seemingly disparate networking protocols and concepts into an eminently understandable framework. This book serves as both an excellent reference and as a learning tool for individuals from a broad range of networking disciplines.”
