The Agilio OVS Firewall Software is designed to enable zero-trust stateful security in data centers using OpenStack-based automation. Agilio OVS Firewall Software, combined with Agilio SmartNICs, enable zero-trust stateful security while significantly improving server-based networking performance. Agilio OVS Firewall Software restores valuable CPU cores by offloading OVS and connection tracking (Conntrack) to Netronome’s SmartNICs.
This gives users the ability to define more intelligent filtering policies, security groups, access control lists, and stateful firewall applications.
The solution is a drop-in accelerator for OVS, making it compatible with existing network tools, controllers and orchestration software. This, combined with
XVIO, now brings the same security and performance to VirtIO-based VM workloads.
