LiquidIO® II Network Appliance Adapters

Server Adapters

The Cavium LiquidIO II Network Appliance Adapter family of multi-function accelerator NICs delivers the industry’s broadest range of compatible boards for security (SSL/IPsec, SRTP, Data-at-Rest), TCP, compression/decompression, and Intrusion Prevention/Anti-virus (IPS/AV) processing in secure network services and storage applications. The LiquidIO II Network Appliance Adapters enable the fastest time to market for appliances from 10Gbps to 80Gbps performance. These boards integrate unique capabilities such as C/C++ programmability and various Network offload HW blocks Cavium also provides RFC complaint toolkits such as TCP, SSL, IPsec etc toolkits which are used to jump start the development on these cards.

The LiquidIO Network Appliance Adapter family includes 40GbE with QSFP optical connections that provide the high performance and key features for OEM networking, security, and storage appliances. All LiquidIO II Network Appliance Adapters are offered in a standard PCIe form-factor, supported by a portable host driver and API’s for hardware offload. Various product options are available within each family to suit the specific needs of each individual application:

  • Rich server virtualization:
    • Single root input/output (SR-IOV)
    • Virtual function (VF) based containers
    • Multiple queues per virtual machine (VM)
  • Network Acceleration and offloads:
    • TCP/UDP/IP stateless offload
    • Receive-side scaling (RSS)
    • Quality of service (QoS) with traffic metering
    • Header and packet parsing with application recognition
