  • Barefoot Networks

    "Barefoot Networks is delighted to demonstrate ubiquitous network visibility on a per-packet basis together with Netronome. Having real-time and accurate telemetry information is crucial for running networks reliably today. The combination of our Tofino Ethernet switch with the Agilio SmartNIC from Netronome gives network operators the flexibility to define and extract the metrics they need diagnose and fix bad behavior across the entire network."

    Ed Doe, vice president of product and marketing, Barefoot Networks

  • Mirantis

    "Zero-trust security implemented using OpenStack security groups fills many holes in traditional perimeter-based firewalling exacerbated by increasing east-west traffic. The integration of the Agilio CX 25GbE and Linux Firewall platform with Mirantis OpenStack solves this multi-dimensional challenge by improving performance, scale and economies for both east-west traffic and servers implementing zero-trust security."

    Kamesh Pemmaraju, vice president of product marketing, Mirantis

  • IDC

    "Increasing traffic and an explosion in the number of VMs has led many companies to want to firewall their infrastructure on a per-VM basis. By offloading Linux firewall functionality onto the Agilio CX adapter, Netronome allows companies to enable stateful firewalls for each VM without overloading server CPUs."

    Abhi Dugar, research director, cloud infrastructure semiconductors and IoT security, IDC

  • IHS

    "OpenStack orchestration combined with open source networking solutions is one of the top use cases for SDN/NFV, and high performance with detailed application telemetry allowing large scale cost effective data center deployments are a must have. The technologies and capabilities demonstrated by Netronome with its Agilio CX products, integrated with OpenStack, target this important market requirement, a strategic thought leadership position for Netronome."

    Cliff Grossner, Ph.D., senior research director for data center, cloud and SDN, IHS

  • Ericsson

    "Whether for traditional IT workloads or Telco NFV workloads the integration of Ericsson Cloud SDN Controller (based on OpenDaylight) with Agilio CX demonstrates significant improvement in both the performance delivered to VMs and the gains in server efficiency, which are significant challenges. Ericsson supports open collaborative work in this area and is excited to participate with Netronome in the development and deployment of OVS datapath offload."

    Francois Lemarchand, head of SDN strategy, product line SDN and policy control, Ericsson

  • China Mobile

    "Virtual switches have become an integral part of data center networking, however performance becomes a significant impediment at 10Gb/s and higher data rates. Agilio CX SmartNICs save significant CPU cycles while improving performance for server-based networking features such as virtual tunnel end points and policies per VM or tenant, enabling higher service levels at lower cost."

    Chen Li, SDN project manager, China Mobile

  • Fujitsu

    "Programmable networking datapath implementation in hardware can enable differentiated performance and service levels on a per NFV application or per customer basis. The P4 datapath programming language, as supported by Netronome’s Agilio CX SmartNICs and related development tools, is simple and hardware agnostic, allowing for rapid and future-proofed networking datapath innovation."

    Seiji Miyoshi, senior executive officer, Fujitsu Advanced Technologies Limited

  • 451 Research

    "Server-based network innovation such as overlay virtual networks has been a key element of data center virtualization initiatives. However, as CPU performance and “East/West” network traffic continue to grow, less and less of the CPU is available for the compute workload, and the software value proposition falls apart. Netronome communications-optimized and programmable silicon, and the seamless OVS acceleration with OpenStack management as delivered by its Agilio solution, cost-effectively enables the CPU to deliver more application and system throughput, and can enable the broader adoption of server-based networking."

    Peter Christy, research director, 451 Research

  • IDC

    "Existing server adapters are challenged to keep pace with rapidly evolving host-based networking solutions. The Agilio CX SmartNICs couple the server-based networking software layer with high-performance hardware, enabling rapid deployment of new networking features as they become available. This saves valuable time to market and increases data center infrastructure efficiency."

    Abhi Dugar, research director, cloud infrastructure and IoT security, IDC

  • IHS

    "As networking bandwidth demands reach 10GbE speeds and beyond, virtual networking begins to consume significant server CPU cycles, starving applications. After significant innovation in software, the market is ready for hardware innovation to offload processing–intensive networking functions. Netronome with its Agilio platform is well positioned to meet this need."
