Data center and enterprise network traffic is exploding, driven by cloud storage, video and other services demanding greater bandwidth. Service providers are investing in new datacenters, with power-efficient server systems and network acceleration. Computationally intensive networking functions can rob servers and network appliances of processing power that could be used for other tasks.

The Axxia® Network Accelerator PCIe® cards provide inline and co-processor acceleration of security processing, content processing, and realtime services such as application recognition, network packet capture and network performance monitoring.
