The Microsoft Scalable Networking initiative seeks to deliver innovative networking technology solutions for the Microsoft Windows family of operating systems focused on eliminating potential operating system bottlenecks associated with network packet processing. Through the introduction of new architectural innovations like TCP Chimney Offload and NetDMA, the Scalable Networking initiative seeks to deliver support for the latest network acceleration and hardware-based offload technologies without requiring changes to existing applications or network management practices.
The Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Scalable Networking Pack supports IT professionals in scaling their network-based applications while optimizing server performance and maximizing network throughput on Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 or later. The Scalable Networking Pack includes TCP Chimney Offload, Receive-Side Scaling, and NetDMA.
