FYI, this story is more than a year old

Cavium's FastLinQ 45000 Series 25/100Gb Ethernet Adapter technology has now been completely integrated into the Data Plan Development Kit (DPDK).

"Telco and cloud service providers are embracing NFV to fundamentally change the architecture of their networks to obtain greater service agility and reduce costs," explains Cliff Grossner, Ph.D., senior research director - advisor for cloud, data center and SDN at IHS Market.

"In a recent IHS Market report, 63% of service provider respondents want improved operational efficiencies without sacrificing carrier grade performance and quality,” he adds.

Grossner says this will then drive the need for solutions providing 100Gbps Ethernet high-performance CPU offload for NFV and cloud workloads providing operational efficiencies with reducing deployment costs.

"Cavium FastLinQ cutting-edge NIC technologies and joint innovation with leading NFV and cloud infrastructure partners eliminate the performance barrier associated with realizing and deploying NFV and cloud solutions," adds Rajneesh Gaur, Vice President and General Manager, Ethernet Adapter Group, Cavium.

"Moreover, this groundbreaking performance combined with the intelligence and offload capabilities of our FastLinQ family of 25/100Gb Ethernet Adapters empowers NFV and cloud platforms to deliver exceptional levels of service and application processing, while offloading packet I/O."

The FastLinQ 45000 series 25/100Gb Ethernet Adapters offers key benefits like increased performance and scalability for NFV and cloud workloads, improved server utilization and efficient administration.

Cavium FastLinQ 45000 Series 25/100GbE adapters are shipping in volume now and are available from Cavium itself, HPE and other OEMs.
