Enhancing Network Performance with RDMA on Microsoft Azure Network Adapter


This abstract explores the integration of Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) on the Microsoft Azure Network Adapter, a specialized network interface card optimized for RDMA workloads in Azure environments. It discusses the advantages of RDMA technology, including reduced latency, improved throughput, and lower CPU utilization. The abstract highlights the configuration options and network protocols supported by the adapter, such as InfiniBand and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE). Benchmark results demonstrate the performance benefits of RDMA-enabled Azure Network Adapter deployments, showcasing reduced communication latency and improved network throughput. The abstract concludes by emphasizing the importance of RDMA in enhancing network performance and scalability in the Azure cloud environment.
