10/25/40/50/100G Ethernet NICs for neural-class data centers that need ultra-high bandwidth, ultra-low latency + a NIC platform for micro-segmented acceleration, security and telemetry.
Introducing XtremeScale X2 Series NICs
Built with the all new Solarflare X2 Ethernet controller ASIC, the X2 Series is a family of powerful, intelligent, 10/25/40/50/100GbE NICs in PCIe and OCP form-factors. Customers and developers, contact us for information about where you can obtain X2 NICs.
Designed for Neural-Class Data Centers
Driven by the needs of global cloud applications, the data center industry is undergoing an epic migration to a software-defined, scale-out architecture with computing distributed among dozens to thousands of cores.
XtremeScale X2 Series NICs from Solarflare are designed to efficiently support these sprawling environments with a suite of APIs; ultra-scale connectivity to thousands of vNICs; micro-segmented security; line-speed packet and flow telemetry; support for NVMe fabrics over TCP; and acceleration for bare-metal, VM and container workloads.
XtremeScale 8000 Series 10/40GbE NICs
In ultra-scale environments we can’t be content with network adapters that simply connect servers to networks. Server level security, VM level network telemetry, and application acceleration are issues that network adapters need to address at scale. Look to Solarflare’s XtremeScale 8000 series adapters to address your data center needs with market-leading features such as:
- • Bandwidth up to 40Gbps
- • Latencies below 1usec
- • XtremePacket Engine provides 1000s of flows/virtual NICs per adapter
- • APIs to software defined the adapter enabling a wide range of capabilities
- • UKB enables extreme application acceleration
- • Telemetry for packet capture, monitoring and analysis
- • NIC-level security through packet filtering and secure server lockdown
The 1st Platform for NIC Fabric Services
The advent of XtremeScale-class NICs marks a technology inflection point after which general-purpose NICs will be evaluated and selected based on their ability to host micro-segmented network services such as acceleration, security and telemetry in a NIC fabric.
IT Brand Pulse searched for competitive offerings, contacted both vendors and IT pros, and validated that with the general availability of XtremeScale NICs, Solarflare is first to ship a production-ready version of a Commercial Platform for NIC Fabric Services.
Solarflare offers a variety of Solarflare branded optical SR transceivers modules. In addition, Solarflare ExtremeScale 8000 series server adapters have been tested and support multiple third party transceiver modules, as well as Direct Attach (DA) Cables listed in the table.
Accessories will be adding X2 series of products as they are approved for use.
