    At the present time, the SmartNIC is supported only with the KVM hypervisor. F5 cannot comment on what the future support status may be for other hypervisor environments.

    Aside from the matter of the hypervisor, note that the SmartNIC hardware has power and cooling characteristics which may exceed the capacity of some server machines; prospective users should consult Intel's list of compatible platforms.
