Wire for OpenPOWER based Systems
We're very excited to share major milestones recently achieved by our T5 Unified Wire solution for OpenPOWER based systems.
Chelsio T5 adapters achieved OpenPOWER Ready Compliance. The OpenPOWER Ready-compliant 10/40 GbE Unified Wire adapters can be utilized in servers and high performance computing clusters as part of an open architecture model featuring technology from members of the OpenPOWER Foundation. With full TCP/IP, iWARP RDMA & iSCSI Offload over a single unified wire, T5 provides increased performance, efficiency and scalability while concurrently minimizing server and storage overheads. It is now possible to address all networking, clustering and storage needs using a single architecture, one firmware image, one software suite, and a single qualification effort, resulting in tremendous cost savings and ease of use.
Chelsio's Terminator Core IP is a configurable, high-performance Ethernet packet processing engine with a full suite of software, suitable as a network connectivity solution for OpenPOWER or other embedded CPU based SoC systems. At the heart of the Terminator line of silicon proven Network Interface Card (NIC) controllers, Chelsio's Core architecture is designed for low latency, high capacity cut-through processing, minimum cycles per byte (CPB) and maximum memory efficiency. It is integrated with a single system bus interface such as PCI or ACE on the host side, and one or more Ethernet ports on network side.
T6 can encrypt/decrypt data with or without the integrated TOE, enabling a variety of applications such as de-dupe finger print generation, concurrent data-at-rest encryption and network encryption using a single chip. When combined with the integrated traffic manager, T6 is ideally suited for secure media streaming applications. Why have a regular cloud or datacenter if you can have a secure one at no power or price premium? T6 enables differentiation of the end solution.
Chelsio added a number of News reports and white papers to its technical library, including:
