Jumpgate: In-Network Processing as a Service for Data Analytics


Craig Mustard, Fabian Ruffy, Anny Gakhokidze, Ivan Beschastnikh, and Alexandra Fedorova, University of British Columbia


In-network processing, where data is processed by special-purpose devices as it passes over the network, is showing great promise at improving application performance, in particular for data analytics tasks. However, analytics and in-network processing are not yet integrated and widely deployed. This paper presents a vision for providing in-network processing as a service to data analytics frameworks, and outlines benefits, remaining challenges, and our current research directions towards realizing this vision.
