Widespread deployment of 10-gigabit Ethernet connections to servers has been hampered by the high cost of network interfaces and the fast-network, slow-host phenomenon. Although the cost of 10GbE connectivity is decreasing, the mismatch between network bandwidth and host computational capacity still needs attention. This article describes the challenges posed by 10GbE termination in modern servers, presents evolving methods that can overcome the computational challenges, and highlights future research trends.
