Netronome Appoints Sujal Das as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Strategy and Data Center Business Unit

Netronome announced that Sujal Das has joined the executive management team as the senior vice president and general manager of strategy and Data Center Business Unit. Das brings more than 20 years of experience with success in leading growth for a number of networking semiconductor companies including Broadcom, Mellanox and Marvell. A strategic leader with a deep understanding of the market, Das most recently led data center and SDN related initiatives at Broadcom helping establish the growth of merchant switch silicon and bare metal switches as a forceful trend in data center networking. Prior to that, at Mellanox, Das led the expansion of the company's growth into the data center market by establishing the value of the company's technologies in mainstream applications.

Netronome and Accton Technology Corporation Announce Application-Aware White Box Switch Design

Netronome and Accton Technology Corporation announced a high density 10/40/100GbE top of rack (TOR) switch design with extensive flow processing and match-action-based networking capabilities to enhance network application performance and reduce operational expenses in data center networks. The innovative design adds Netronome NFP-6xxx coprocessor modules to Accton's Edge-Core AS6700-32X modular 1RU switch supporting intelligent application-aware policies and network applications such as load balancing, security and network analytics. The Edge-Core AS6700-32X switch supports popular top of rack switch configurations with up to 104 10GbE ports or 32 40GbE ports, which can be configured in a mix of downlinks to servers in the rack and uplinks to the spine network. The Netronome NFP coprocessor modules will add network intelligence for millions of simultaneous flows traversing the switch, including flow-based dynamic load balancing and cut-through processing for network functions such as deep packet inspections (DPI), next-generation firewalls (NGFW), intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) and network analytics. These capabilities help improve the performance of such applications in the network, and also improve network reliability through granular flow-based network monitoring and visibility into tunneled traffic. The design features an intelligent uplink module based on Netronome's NFP-6xxx co-processor that adds wire-speed application-level awareness and enhanced network processing to traditional TOR switching and routing. For example, elephant flows that adversely affect performance of applications such as Hadoop, can be detected and steered dynamically to dedicated or less utilized links. In addition, support of network virtualization can be significantly enhanced through support for VXLAN or NVGRE tunnel endpoint and gateway functionality, including flexible routing between tunnel types, with support for more than 100K tenants. The NFP-6xxx co-processor also supports scalable MPLS-based forwarding and traffic engineering, as well as operator specified tunneling protocols or newly defined protocols such as GENEVE. The Edge-Core AS6700-32X switch with Netronome NFP-6xxx based prototype modules can be seen in booth 2524, during VMWorld 2014, August 24-27 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
