Netronome Flow Processors Bring Intelligence to the SDN Edge at Linley Tech Data Center Conference 2013

Netronome, the leading developer of network flow processors, today will discuss new processor requirements and system design implications driven by software defined networking (SDN) at the Linley Tech Data Center Conference 2013 taking place February 5 - 6 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara, California.

Niel Viljoen, chief development officer and founder of Netronome will present, "The SDN On-Ramp,” on February 5 at 10:20 a.m. An entrepreneur and veteran of the network communications industry, Viljoen will discuss how SDN is revolutionizing the way networks are designed and the growing importance of flow-aware intelligence at the SDN edge.

“Data center networking is undergoing a vast transformation in order meet the cost, manageability, and performance demands of today’s data-intensive applications," said Viljoen. “This change is driving a new network architecture which enables low cost silicon to form a simple, high capacity data center fabric while flow processors service the intelligent networking applications located at the edge of the SDN.”

“Given the latest advancements in data center and carrier networks, we are excited to watch industry experts share their diverse perspectives on SDN, virtualization and network convergence,” said Jag Bolaria, senior analyst at the Linley Group. “We look forward to hearing Niel discuss the future of intelligent networking, and the newest practices for data center SDN deployments.”

Powered by 96 packet processing cores and 120 multi‐threaded flow processing cores and over 100 hardware accelerators operating at up to 1.2 GHz, Netronome’s NFP‐6xxx brings breakthrough performance to a broad range of network, security and content processing applications used in 10-400 Gbps networks designs. The NFP‐6xxx delivers 200 Gbps of packet processing with deep packet inspection, network and security processing, and I/O virtualization for millions of simultaneous flows and is an Intel 22nm 3D Tri-gate design.

The two-day conference focuses on processors, components and interconnects for data center networking and servers. For more information about the Linley Tech Data Center Conference 2013 visit: http://www.linleygroup.com/data-center-conference
