Neural-Class Networks


Two macro-trends are leading to the emergence of “Neural-Class Networks”--computing environments which may or may not be used for artificial intelligence and deep learning, but share the same distributed scale-out architecture, and massive size. Neural-class networks can be found in the data centers of public cloud service providers, stock exchanges, large retailers, insurance providers and carriers, to name just a few.

Our XtremeScale Architecture



Next generation scale-out computing environments incorporate thousands of cores (neurons) inter-connected at very high speeds and at very low latencies. Servers in these neural-class networks are instrumented for the telemetry needed to automate self-driving data centers, instrumented to process packets needed for real-time analytics, and instrumented for hardware-based security. Solarflare is pioneering server connectivity for neural-class networks, from silicon to firmware to software, to provide a comprehensive, integrated set of technologies for distributed, ultra scale, software defined datacenters.

Changing the conversation from NVMe adoption to full fabric services…

…Solarflare is changing the conversation to “NVMe over standard Ethernet,” and to an arena that IT pros care about most, “traffic engineering” with fabric services that makes network traffic to their application servers run faster, more visible, and highly secure.

World's First NVMe over Fabric...

…Solarflare busts open the market for NVMe fabrics by leveraging native Ethernet TCP which IT organizations will deploy in 90% of the 100 million Ethernet ports shipped into their data centers each year.

“Our business is modernizing data security for scale-out environments,” said Mark Schreiber, General Manager at CDL. “With software defined network processing on every server, SolarSecure provides both the granularity and scalability we need in a security platform to cloak data lakes from prying eyes.”

“The whole challenge in providing a low-latency trading platform is to make the infrastructure as thin as possible, said Dan Feldman, vice president of systems and network engineering at Trading Technologies. “Adding firewall appliances adds hops and latency. By placing a Smart NIC with SolarSecure in line with the transactions, we eliminate hops and deliver a similar security narrative.”
