Accelerated Security Architectures on Display at RSA

By Daniel Proch | Feb 29, 2016

Security architectures are rapidly changing to keep up with an ever evolving threat landscape. At RSA this year there will undoubtedly be a wide ranging set of opinions on what is the most effective architecture to secure your cloud, enterprise, or carrier network. One of the newest and most exciting techniques is called “zero-trust security.” The idea is to place security as close as possible to applications themselves and eliminate the idea of a trusted internal network and untrusted external networks. “Trust none. Verify all,” is the simple premise.

Netronome at RSA 2016 - A Platform For Security Acceleration

By Daniel Proch | Feb 27, 2016

Next week Netronome will be exhibiting at RSA 2016 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Of all of the conferences that we attend, RSA is the best opportunity to see first hand the technology and trends that secure and protect our digital world. Considering what a year 2015 was from a security perspective and what we have to look forward to this year, I think we all would acknowledge that our security footing is not very stable right now.

Ericsson Cloud SDN and Netronome Agilio CX Demonstration

By Nick Tausanovitch | Feb 22, 2016

This week at Mobile World Congress, Ericsson and Netronome will be holding a joint demonstration in the Ericsson area showcasing performance and efficiency gains that can be achieved when SmartNICs are used to accelerate and offload networking functions from cloud data center servers or hyperscale data center systems like the Ericsson HDS-8000. The demonstration showcases integration of Ericsson’s Cloud SDN platform, providing dynamic and seamless L3 VPN connectivity, with Netronome’s Agilio CX SmartNICs and Agilio software to provide dramatic acceleration for data path performance, while at the same time providing significant server CPU offload.

Netronome and Juniper are Accelerating Open Contrail vRouter at MWC

By Robert Truesdell | Feb 19, 2016

Here at Netronome, we are gearing up for an exciting week at Mobile World Congress, hosted in Barcelona on February 22-26. One activity that we are particularly excited about is the demonstration of Netronome’s Agilio CX SmartNIC and Agilio vRouter software inside the Juniper booth, which will highlight our ongoing collaboration with Juniper to provide an accelerated vRouter data plane for the Open Contrail system. In addition, a performance demonstration that boasts a vRouter data path capacity of 27Mpps for VNF service chaining, a 6X improvement over software-only vRouter, will be on display in Netronome’s hospitality suite (2N17MR, Hall 2).

Netronome Agilio SmartNIC and Tieto Application Software for 4G LTE Mobile Traffic Acceleration

By Awanish Verma | Feb 19, 2016

According to the visual networking index (VNI) mobile forecast, mobile traffic will grow 8 fold from 2015 to 2020, a compound annual growth of 53%, that translates to 30.6 Exabytes per month by 2020 (the equivalent of downloading 7,641 million DVDs each month) vs. 3.7 Exabytes per month in 2015. This traffic growth will need significant performance improvement and more efficient CPU core utilization.
