6. Kernel Socket Services

SuperSockets can also be used to accelerate kernel services that communicate via sockets. However, such services need to be adapted to actually use SuperSockets. This adaption is typically a trivial modification to make the service use a different address family when opening new sockets. Either the service can be configured to do so, or it needs to be patched and recompiled.

The Distributed Replicated Block Device (DRBD™, see http://www.linbit.com) for Linux has integrated Dolphin PCI Express software support.

If you are interested in accelerated kernel services like iSCSI, GNBD or others, please contact Dolphin Support.
