If you’re planning on attending Interop 2012 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, be sure to stop by the Emulex booth to see demonstrations of some of our newly announced products. You can find us at booth #1117 at the show, and it will be hard to miss since we will be displaying a Ducati motorcycle doing a wheelie in our booth, and we are giving it away! Of particular excitement for our Implementer’s Lab team are the demonstrations that we built that highlight our new OneConnect® OCe12000 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) Network Xceleration™ solution line of products. These demos showcase the key performance benefits that each of the three new OneConnect Network Xceleration solutions have to offer.
This demo showcases the low latency benefits of our new OCe12000 adapter combined with FastStack™ DBL™ software, which should be of interest to High Frequency Trading environments or anyone looking for the lowest possible Ethernet network latency. In our demonstration, we will be comparing the UDP and TCP latency of our network adapter when using the host network stack compared to FastStack DBL.
In this demonstration, we will show server-efficient 10Gb bandwidth and 100 percent lossless performance of the OCe12000 adapter with FastStack Sniffer10G software. This solution can provide network traffic capture, injection and analysis for performance-sensitive and mission-critical market segments, such as network surveillance, monitoring and analysis, deep packet inspection (DPI), test and measurement, and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) defense appliances. Our demonstration highlights the performance aspect required of these missions by showing maximum 10GbE performance of more than 14 million packets per second, while only utilizing ~4.5% of the server CPU resources.
The third demo is a beta showing of our new FastStack VideoPump™ software that will be available later this summer. As the name implies, this product is targeted toward video streaming servers and appliances that require very high amounts of individual streams per adapter, while assuring predictable QoS. Our demonstration will showcase FastStack VideoPump’s extreme scalability and performance while maintaining low server CPU utilization. The demo uses 8 Network Interface Card (NIC) ports in a single server, communicating over 17,000 individual 3.5Mbit/sec traffic streams for an aggregate bandwidth of over 60Gb/s, all the while only using 25% of the server CPU resources.
If you would like a personal walk-through of these demos, please stop by the booth and ask to speak with me or anyone else from the Implementer’s Lab team. Also be sure to visit the Ethernet Alliance booth #2360 and ask to see Alex Amaya who is representing us in an industry-wide demonstration of various Ethernet technologies including our new OneConnect Network Xceleration solutions.
