LiquidIO®II Smart NICs

Market Leading Smart NICs with Network and Security Acceleration for Cloud Data Center workloads

LiquidIO®II Smart NICs

The LiquidIO®10G/25GbE Smart NIC family of intelligent adapters provide high performance industry-leading programmable Server adapter solutions for various data center deployments. With applications in hyperscale data centers, hybrid public/private clouds, security VPN appliances, and Telco NFV cloud environments, LiquidIO Smart NICs offload server-based networking functions from the main server CPUs directly onto the PCIe adapter, thus maximizing application line-rate performance, increasing the number of VM instances per core, and as a result reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for next generation data center deployments. With two generations of Smart NICs in production, these adapters are offered with standard software packages supporting OVS offload, IPSec security/DDoS mitigation, and compression/decompression acceleration for virtualized servers, while enabling customers to customize the product for specific use cases.

LiquidIO®Network Appliance Smart NICs: LiquidIO®40GbE Network Appliance Smart NIC is a high end programmable network adapter that offers full TCP, DPI, Security, and compression/decompression acceleration. LiquidIO Network Appliance Smart NIC is targeted for use in a wide variety of OEM networking, security, and storage appliances.
