Allied Data Systems announces the introduction of the NA570, Axiomtek’s new, high-performance 1U rackmount network appliance product.
Axiomtek is one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of innovative, high performance and reliable PC-based industrial computer products. Axiomtek’s network appliance platform is suitable for a variety of applications including VPN, firewall and security applications, network bandwidth controller, WAN accelerator and surveillance system.
The NA570 network appliance systems offer high and reliable performance through the latest 4th Generation Intel Xeon E3-1275 v3 or E3-1225 v3 processors with Intel C226 chipset. The powerful NA570 also supports the 4th Generation Intel Core i processors, allowing developers to configure their network solutions based on performance requirements.
Axiomtek’s advanced network appliance is scalable and customisable and has great expansion capabilities. Through the PCIe 3.0, the NA570 can integrate up to 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports or up to 4 ports at 10GbE. The standard NA570 comes with 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports using Intel i210AT controller and supports two groups of LAN bypass segments. Four DDR3 1600 MHz DIMM sockets can provide storage of up to 32 GB and support of both ECC and non-ECC memory types. To enhance reliability, this SMB platform supports data protection via two pairs of latch-type LAN bypass functions for fail-over option and features BIOS console redirection.
Joyce Wu, Product Manager of Product & Marketing Division at Axiomtek explains Axiomtek’s NA570 network appliance product offers a greater range of processor choices and expansion capabilities that allow developers to configure based on performance requirements and price points. The Intel AES New Instruction (AES-NI) enhancements included with NA570 use hardware-based acceleration to encrypt and decrypt data. It also supports the Intel Data Plane Development Kit (Intel DPDK), a set of software libraries that can improve packet processing performance by up to ten times. It can also achieve over 80 Mbps throughput on a single Intel Xeon processor.
The NA570 features two internal 2.5" SATA hard drives and one CompactFlash™ socket for storing event logs. In order to address the various network application needs, the appliance also features one console port, two USB 2.0 ports and a VGA port. There is a front-facing LCD module activity indicator for convenient monitoring of power and HDD activity. The system also supports mainstream Linux operating systems.
One of the most advanced, high performance network appliances of its kind, Axiomtek’s NA570 will be available shortly in March 2014.
