B1 for Security and NFV
The B1 TOR switch platform was designed for the unique requirements of security and NFV (network function virtualization). The patent-pending B1 tightly couples the network services of an Ethernet switch with an Intel® Atom® processor C2000, and a dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 compute resource. A powerful 400G switch fabric with twenty-four 10Gbps ports and four 40Gbps ports provide switching capacity for the entire rack. This combination delivers the high performance required for line-rate service chaining to applications in the data path. As the latest virtualization platform for network services, the B1 delivers twice the density in half the rack space at two-thirds the cost of comparable systems.
ZX9210 for Highly Scalable Virtualization
The ZX9210 platform features the highest performance Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and delivers the largest memory footprint available in an ATCA compute blade. Up to 32 virtual machines (VM) can be hosted in a single blade, each with a dedicated thread to facilitate highly scalable virtual environments for improved efficiency and lower infrastructure costs. Designed for equipment manufacturers, application providers and systems integrators, the ZX9210 platform includes several hardware-based virtualization technologies to improve VM performance. Intel® Data Direct I/O provides direct access to processor cache and SR-IOV, which shares a single I/O resource between multiple VMs.
