Mellanox Demonstrates Four Times Improvement in Crypto Performance with Innova™ IPsec 40G Ethernet Network Adapter
Innova IPsec Advanced Network Adapter Accelerates
Security Protocols to Deliver World-Leading Endpoint IPsec Encryption
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX), a leading
supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced superior crypto
throughput of line rate using Mellanox's Innova IPsec Network Adapter,
demonstrating more than three times higher throughput and more than four
times better CPU utilization when compared to x86 software-based server
offerings. Mellanox's Innova IPsec adapter provides seamless crypto
capabilities and advanced network accelerations to modern data centers,
thereby enabling the ubiquitous use of encryption across the network
while sustaining unmatched performance, scalability and efficiency. By
replacing software-based offerings, Innova can reduce data center
expenses by 60 percent or more.
As security concerns in data centers continue to rise, along with the
inability of CPU-based products to handle today's exponential data
growth, delivering cost effective and performant hardware-accelerated
crypto solutions on a per-server basis has become paramount to
maintaining the integrity and confidentiality of the data exchanged over
the network infrastructure.
The Innova IPsec adapter addresses the growing need for security and
"encryption by default" by combining Mellanox ConnectX®
advanced network adapter accelerations with IPsec offload capabilities
to deliver end-to-end data protection in a low profile PCIe form factor.
The Innova IPsec adapter offers multiple integrated crypto and security
protocols and performs the encryption/decryption of data-in-motion,
freeing up costly CPU cycles.
"The Innova security adapter product line enables the use of secure
communications in a cost effective and a performant manner," said Gilad
Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "Whether
used within an appliance such as firewall or gateway, or as an
intelligent adapter that ensures data-in-motion protection, Innova IPsec
adapters are the ideal solution for cloud, Web 2.0, telecommunication,
high-performance compute, storage systems and other applications."
Innova products deliver industry-leading technologies and accelerations
through the integrated ConnectX®-4 Lx network adapter, such
as support for RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), Ethernet stateless
offload engines, Overlay Networks, and more.
As part of the Innova product line, the Innova Flex Intelligent Network
Adapter enables customers to leverage the flexibility of the embedded
FGPA to develop their own logic within the adapter. The Innova Flex and
IPsec network adapters are currently available in volume quantities.
Mellanox will be exhibiting at the RSA Conference 2017, Feb. 13-17,
booth no. 406, in the South Hall of Moscone Center, San Francisco. At
the show, Mellanox will showcase its Innova solutions, as well as the
Company's Ethernet and InfiniBand intelligent interconnect products.
