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 Accessories

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.
