AppFlex Software

Now you can selectively deploy network services to accelerate, monitor and secure applications within your network.

Software Overview

Solarflare is the leading provider of application-intelligent networking I/O software and hardware that accelerate, monitor and secure network data. Our products are utilized in many of the most demanding scale-out compute environments in the world.

Our unique combination of software and hardware expertise sets us apart in the industry. A perfect example of this is our recently introduced series of Flareon® server I/O adapters. These 10/40GbE adapters feature AppFlex® software, which allows users to select multiple network services to run on the Flareon platform within servers. Services such as the instrumentation and monitoring of network performance, precision time synchronization with hardware time stamping, the securing of critical network data, as well as application acceleration.

Solarflare Product Reference Guide


OpenOnload application acceleration middleware significantly enhances application performance by improving network I/O latency, bandwidth, and message rates, while reducing CPU utilization all with no need to modify applications or change the network infrastructure. Solarflare also offers EnterpriseOnload, which bundles support and service level agreements with an Open Source software subscription.

Filter Engine

SolarSecure is the first distributed, active security solution that is implemented within network servers – the prime targets of cyber attacks. SolarSecure equips servers to precisely record, capture, filter and block malicious traffic before it penetrates the server. SolarSecure Filter Engine, a high performance packet filter engine, can selectively rate-limit or even block traffic from network sources perceived or identified as potentially harmful thus avoiding interruptions to business critical systems and avoiding suspension of service.

Performance Monitor

Today's traders are faced with not only implementing the lowest possible latency trading server but also with the associated detailed measurement of the latency of the trades running on it. Such detailed trading server instrumentation has typically required additional costly hardware and associated support. Now, Solarflare offers the unique ability to instrument trade performance right from the Solarflare Flareon Ultra server I/O adapter without any additional hardware.
