Intelligent Server Adapter / SmartNIC

Server-based networking can be implemented in commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) server-based compute nodes and service nodes. These server-based networking nodes are typically managed using SDN Controllers and Cloud Orchestration software. The Netronome® Agilio® CX family of intelligent server adapters fully and transparently offloads the entire virtual switch datapath processing for networking functions such as overlays, security, load balancing and telemetry, enabling compute servers used for server-based networking to deliver at their full potential.

Server-based networking can be implemented in COTS server-based compute nodes and service nodes. These server-based networking nodes are typically managed using SDN Controllers and Cloud Orchestration software. The Agilio LX family of intelligent server adapters (ISA) are specifically designed for virtualized and non-virtualized x86 server-based service nodes and WAN Gateways. The solution delivers significant scaling and efficiencies for networking functions used in mobile core (e.g., vEPC), security (e.g., IDS/IPS, NGFW, DDoS), load balancing and gateway (VXLAN, MPLS-VLAN/VXLAN) applications.
