Openservers ConnectX-6

Hi,

Check Point Lighspeed is leverering the Nvidia ConnectX-6 for offloading some traffic flows.
As this NIC is availible to buy seperate for standard open servers,
https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/networking/ethernet/connectx-6-dx/

Is Check Point looking it to releasing this features for openservers aswell?
One of Check Point biggest strength is that its a software company, limiting these kinds of features to appliances only i think would be a misstake. Checking out the competition, its looks like both PAN and Forti is doing some sort of DPU acceleration with Nvidia.

Regards,
Magnus

Hi Magnus,

Not aware of any specific plans currently, but I'm sure others will advise in due course if that is planned to change. 

Suggest working with your local SE to discuss the HCL certification process for these cards in addition to your post here.
