Solarflare AOE Adapters
Solarflare’s SFA7942Q-A7-4 Application Onload Engine (AOE) combines the I/O capabilities of a dual-port 40GbE NIC with the processing power of a field programmable gate array (FPGA).
AOE Key Features Include:
• Bump in the wire processing of network data
• Optimized for network-centric, compute intensive applications
• Enables both pre- and post-processing of high speed network data
• Provides an open platform for the development and deployment of customized network applications
With Solarflare’s AOE adapters, users can expect dramatic improvements in application performance, while maintaining full compatibility with Solarflare’s 40GbE server I/O adapter drivers and Onload software. The SFA7942Q-A7-4 operates in both 2x40GbE and 8x10GbE modes.
