Interop Las Vegas 2010, LAS VEGAS, USA: Netronome, a leading developer of network flow processors, unveiled the industry’s highest performing network flow processing platforms.
Powered by Netronome’s NFP-3240 network flow processors, the Intel Xeon 5600-based servers deliver 200 Gbps of programmable L2-L7 networking in compact 1U and 2U form factors. These high-performance platforms are purpose-built for network and security applications that require line-rate throughput, low latency and high availability from standard IA/x86 systems.
Netronome’s Network Flow Processing Platforms utilize a heterogeneous multicore processing architecture to set new performance benchmarks over standard IA/x86 servers. This architecture provides independent layers of workload-optimized packet, flow, security and application processing to dramatically increase network performance. Simultaneously, it frees IA/x86 resources to provide more application and control plane processing.
Developers of Linux-based network and security applications can significantly reduce development time and costs by taking advantage of the price, performance, power and rate of innovation from standard Intel-based CPUs. The Network Flow Processing Platforms combine best-in-class Intel Xeon 5600 processors with Netronome’s award winning NFP-3240 network flow processors and NFE-3240 PCIe acceleration cards.
This solution extends the benefits of standard Intel-based systems into high-performance networking applications, making them capable of complex network and security processing with unparalleled performance and cost.
