Cavium Networks Launches 10GbE Intelligent Network Adapters

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire) - Cavium Networks, a leading provider of highly integrated semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, wireless, storage and video applications, today announced a broad line of 10 Gigabit Ethernet Intelligent Network Adapters (INA). These adapters fully offload secure network services, compression, iSCSI and FCoE functionality from the host CPU to deliver industry leading performance up to 10 Gbps in Appliances, Blade Servers and Storage Systems.

The 10 GbE INA families, based on the OCTEON Plus CN58XX and CN56XX processors, support fiber and copper interfaces in a single PCI-Express or PCI-X slot form factor. These adapters are being designed into a broad range of systems including L4-L7 switches, WAN optimization appliances, Blade Servers and Storage Equipment. Cavium will be disclosing details of these Adapters in Booth #1943 at Interop Las Vegas 2009 taking place on May 17-21 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

10 GbE Connectivity & Intelligent Network Acceleration for Appliances, Servers and Storage

Processing requirements in the Data Center are increasing rapidly driven by applications including Cloud Computing, Secure ecommerce & Web 2.0. Additionally, there is increased integration of computing, networking and virtualization in a single system with needs for lower real-estate, power and cost. Furthermore, 10 Gigabit Ethernet is being increasingly adopted for network, storage and clustering IO connectivity. The Cavium Intelligent Network Adapters offer 10 GbE connectivity with leading hardware acceleration for Packet Processing, Compression, Pattern-matching (regular expression), IPsec/SSL processing, Firewall, Intrusion prevention (IPS), Anti-Virus, iSCSI and FCoE. Additionally, these products provide QoS capability that is essential for IO virtualization and integration of networking and storage data in a single Adapter. These adapters are programmable using standard C/C++ and operating systems which enable OEM customers to implement custom application acceleration features.
