Rackmount network appliance enables virtualisation performance
Lanner Electronics has announced the release of its NCA-5710, a 1U rackmount network appliance built with Intel Xeon Processor Scalable Family (Codenamed Skylake-SP) and dual LGA3647 CPU sockets.
The introduction of the NCA-5710 is a response to network service providers’ demand for more agile and flexible methods for delivering virtualisation performance for network computing; the NCA-5710, featuring optimised computing power and virtualisation capacity in a 19” 1U form factor with high port density, is the suitable solution for such requirements.
The NCA-5710 is powered by Intel’s Xeon Processor Scalable Family and Intel C627 or C621 chipset, delivering dual CPU performance and advanced networking features, including Intel QuickAssist Technology, new Intel AVX-512 instructions, Intel Hyperscan and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK).
With support for up to 384GB DDR4 system memory at 2666MHz, the NCA-5710 greatly maximises packet processing efficiency for virtual network functions, cryptography acceleration for deep packet inspection and many next-generation firewall and UTM/IPS/IDS applications.
For optimal networking tasks, the NCA-5710 comes with dual LGA3647 CPU sockets and can be configured with either 4x GbE RJ-45 or 4x 10G SFP+ ports.
The LAN expansion is made possible by way of its 4x NIC module slots that offer support for 10G/25G/40G/100G fiber/copper/bypass specifications, such versatility and scalability makes NCA-5710 a suitable hardware solution for enhancing network traffic management and virtualised network security.
Other features include dual console ports (RJ45 c& mini-USB), dual USB 3.0 ports, 6x individual swappable fans, dual 2.5”HDD/SSD bays, 1x M.2, 850W 1+1 ATX redundant PSUs and optional PCIe*16 FH/HL.
