Cloud Onload

Application acceleration platform for
cloud data centers

Cloud Onload delivers 400% or more improvement in application acceleration, with significantly reduced CPU utilization

Enhance Customer Experiences.
Reduce End-User Abandonment.
Increase ROI.

Solarflare’s Cloud Onload® software dramatically accelerates and scales network-intensive applications such as in-memory databases, software load balancers, and web servers. With Cloud Onload, data centers can support 400% or more users on their cloud network while delivering improved reliability, enhanced quality of service (QoS) and higher return on investment, without modification to existing applications.

Cloud Onload allows data centers to realize:

  • Improved elasticity and efficiency, leading to a lower total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Increased peak transaction rates, eliminating service brownouts
  • Reduced network jitter with greater response times, equating to superior quality of service

Add 400% or more users

Improve message rates by 100%

Minimize server footprint 25% or more

Reduce latency by 50%

Experience near zero jitter

Maximize capex & opex

Enhance quality of service

Extending Data Center Investments

Cloud Onload delivers a return on capex investments by allowing data centers to redeploy 25% or more of their load-balancing servers for other tasks. Alternatively, data centers can attain a reduction in operational expenses (opex) by shrinking the overall server footprint.
