Product Description

In ultra-scale environments, we can’t be content with network adapters that simply connect servers to networks. Server level security, virtual machine (VM) level network telemetry, and application acceleration are issues that network adapters need to address at scale. Look to our XtremeScale 8000 series adapters to address your data center needs with market-leading features such as:

  • Bandwidth up to 40Gbps
  • Latencies below 1μsec
  • XtremePacket Engine provides 1000s of flows/virtual NICs per adapter
  • APIs to software defined the adapter enabling a wide range of capabilities
  • UKB enables extreme application acceleration
  • Telemetry for packet capture, monitoring and analysis
  • NIC-level security through packet filtering and secure server lockdown

Onload® - Application Acceleration Software

Onload® dramatically accelerates and scales network-intensive applications such as in-memory databases, software load balancers, and web servers. With Onload, data centers can support 400% or more users on their cloud network while delivering improved reliability, enhanced quality of service (QoS) and higher return on investment, without modification to existing applications.

Onload allows data centers to realize:

  • Improved elasticity and efficiency, leading to a lower total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Increased peak transaction rates, eliminating service brownouts
  • Reduced network jitter with greater response times, equating to superior quality of service

Features:

  • Add 400% or more users
  • Improve messagerates by 100%
  • Minimize server footprint 25%
  • Reduce Latency by 50%
  • Experience near zero jitter
  • Maxmize capex & opex
  • Enhance quality of service

Extending Data Center Investments

Onload delivers a return on capex investments by allowing data centers to redeploy 25% or more of their load-balancing servers for other tasks. Alternatively, data centers can attain a reduction in operational expenses (opex) by shrinking the overall server footprint.


How Fast Can Your Applications Go?

Onload accelerates nearly all network-intensive TCP-based applications. Typical performance improvements when utilizing Onload include:

Use Case Applicaation(s) Performance Increase Benchmark Documents
In-Memory Databases Couchbase, Memcached, Redis 100%
Software Load Balancers NGINX Plus, HAProxy 400%
Web Servers/ Applications NGINX Plus, Netty.io 50%

Xilinx has produced a series of cookbooks that outline the servers we used, the configuration done, and exactly what testing was completed. The purpose of these cookbooks is to enable customers to reproduce the results obtained, as sometimes they can appear somewhat remarkable.

Ensuring Uptime and Network Compatibility

Onload is built from the same I/O software technology that powers nearly every financial market and high-frequency trading application on the planet. POSIX compliant, Onload ensures compatibility with TCP-based applications, management tools, and network infrastructures. In addition, Onload provides RDMA-like performance without requiring a forklift upgrade to the data center’s network infrastructure and can be deployed across x86-based platforms running Linux – bare metal, virtual machine or container.
