“Datacenter managers and architects must contend with traffic growth driven by everything from video to cloud services,” said Noy Kucuk, vice president, marketing, Networking Components Division, LSI. “The Axxia network accelerator card provides a drop-in network performance boost, helping customers to cost-effectively speed up their network’s performance without adding servers or additional hardware.”
The AXP3420 card features an Axxia processor with specialized hardware accelerators that improve performance for deep packet inspection, traffic management and other critical networking functions. Customers can customize the accelerator card, which will ship with a broad set of application development kits, to meet their needs for network control, monitoring, application recognition, security and virtual private networks. The Axxia development kit also will allow manufacturers to customize the accelerator card for specific applications.
“As the amount of traffic flowing through the world’s networks continues to grow, so does the need for scalable and flexible offload solutions,” said Abhi Dugar, research manager, IDC. “The Axxia network accelerator offers an easy performance boost and a platform for OEMs to embed intelligence in their networks to efficiently deliver next-generation services.”
“We were able to easily integrate our highly sophisticated suite of signatures and tools with the LSI® Axxia network accelerator AXP3420 to deliver a high-performance application recognition product that meets our customers’ needs to analyze the traffic on their networks,” said Jason Richards, CEO of Vineyard Networks.
The LSI AXP3420 accelerator card is expected to be available to OEMs in the third quarter of 2012. Information on the AXP3420 and the portfolio of LSI networking and storage solutions will be available at the LSI hospitality suite at Surf B at Interop Las Vegas, May 6-10.
