Last year we announced Skala-SR / Postgres Pro database machine with a hardware and software support for remote direct memory access (RDMA) as a key feature. The first appliances have been already installed at customer sites, and even with the first version customers got some constructions, that were impossible without RDMA and CPU offload (got with Mellanox networking). However, capabilities of this equipment are much wider, and this talk is dedicated to current works and prospective developments for this topic.
