About Agilio SmartNICs
Server-based networking can be implemented in commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) server-based compute nodes and service nodes. Netronome® Agilio® family of SmartNICs provide the performance, functionality and programmability required by Cloud operators and service providers struggling to meet performance expectations without consuming massive CPU cores.
With a low-profile PCIe form factor and 10, 25, 40 and 50GbE throughput, Netronome Agilio CX SmartNICs fully and transparently offload 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.
For service nodes that require the pinnacle of performance, Agilio LX 40/100GbE SmartNICs 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, security, load balancing and gateway applications.
