Advantech Enhances Server Portfolio with Software Defined Networking from Netronome

Advantech (TWSE: 2395.TW) today introduced Software Defined Networking (SDN) to its line of x86-based Network Application Platforms and High Performance Carrier Grade Servers with Netronome NFE-3240 FlowNICs. Advantech’s High Performance Servers are highly configurable platforms designed to balance the best in x86 server-class processing performance with maximum I/O and offload density. Netronome’s PCIe FlowNICs provide 6x 1G or 2x 10G Ethernet connectivity to Openflow 1.3 controllers, which enable Advantech’s Carrier Grade and Optimized I/O servers to be deployed at the intelligent edge of Software Defined Networks.

In today’s enterprise, telecom and data center infrastructure, the intelligent edge is comprised of standard servers that are responsible for hosting applications, network and security services while simultaneously directing traffic among virtual machines across a sophisticated overlay network. By offloading these networking functions to the Netronome programmable FlowNIC, Advantech servers solve the scalability challenges of virtual switching at the intelligent edge while offering more valuable x86 CPU cycles to run applications. This configuration makes Advantech systems well positioned for use as SDN middleboxes, SDN gateways and NFV appliances.

“The combination of Netronome’s Flow Processors and SDN software accelerates the network inside Advantech’s x86-based server platforms enabling customers to scale Open vSwitch instantiations to the highest data rates possible within a single server,” said Peter Marek, senior director x86 solutions, Advantech Networks & Communications Group. “This solution offers the most efficient use of processing resources to developers of virtualized networking functions by minimizing the effects on latency, throughput and processing overhead."

Netronome’s NFE-3240 FlowNICs support the Open Networking Foundation’s specification for Openflow 1.0 – 1.3, the widely recognized standard for SDN. “Netronome has always been heavily involved in the ONF standards organizations," said Jarrod Siket, senior vice president and general manager of Netronome. “Seeing Openflow FlowNICs available in high performance, customizable COTS servers from a leading provider like Advantech is strong validation that the technology is not just for research labs.”

Netronome software includes Linux and DPDK drivers for easy integration into x86 designs. Solution stacks are available for cyber security, network analytics, and other Linux-based applications

Advantech is demonstrating Netronome’s NFE-3240 PCIe cards in its CGS-6000 High Performance Server and FWA-3210A network appliance in their booth at Interop, Las Vegas April 1-3, 2014. Highly optimized, next generation appliance and server designs which leverage Netronome’s NFP-6000 series of flow processors are under development for introduction later this year.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web communications world. The 6th WebRTC Summit continues our tradition of delivering the latest and greatest presentations within the world of WebRTC. Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.
WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform.

While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
