In Data Centers today switching and network related costs are growing exponentially. Any technology that increases network efficiencies, reduces operational costs or enables faster response to changing market demand will greatly impact data center profitability.
The only commercial-grade OpenFlow v1.3/1.4 switching solution in the market that offers up to 240 gigabits per second of genuine wire-speed performance, 1 million flow entries and over 12000 flowmods/sec. It is also the only switching solution capable of wire speed packet payload (L2-L7) matching and flow handling!
NoviFlow’s NoviWare is the first high-performance OpenFlow 1.3 and 1.4 compliant switch software available for license to network equipment manufacturers. NoviFlow is raising the speed benchmark for software defined networking (SDN) by leveraging the advanced forwarding plane capabilities network processors. NoviFlow offers NoviWare for EZchip NP-4 and NP-5 network processors, and can customize the solution as needed to meet other hardware requirements.
NoviWare provides the industry’s broadest support of the OpenFlow 1.3 specification, including all actions, instructions and match fields. It has also been extended to support key OpenFlow 1.4 features, thus delivering the capabilities and performance needed by intensive, leading-edge SDN and NFV applications. By implementing NoviWare in their products, OEMs can significantly accelerate time-to-market of full-featured OpenFlow 1.3 and 1.4 offerings to their customers.
We also know that the best applications to deliver value on SDN are yet to be conceived. NoviFlow’s software based approach allows much faster delivery of customized solutions and integration of new functionality, even beyond the content of the OpenFlow specifications! Our solution has been designed to be the premiere platform for networking innovation by partners in the areas of programmable networks for research, commercial data centers, cloud computing, and green ICT. Among the advantages of this approach are the following:
– Application aware (L2 to L7) switching fabric (ideal for edge network packet inspection and re-direction)
– Rapid customization and differentiation of switch functionalities
– Incremental software maintenance through in-service upgrades
– Software releases up to eight times faster than ASIC-based solutions
So whether you have a data center, are doing research into SDN, or want to build an application that will be the Next Big Thing in networking, come talk to us about Switching Made Smarter.
