AAEON Technology GmbH, an industry leader in network security solutions, has collaborated with Intel to deliver a powerful network platform utilizing the latest 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Pressebox portal reported. The result of this effort is the FWS-8600 2U rackmount network appliance, the most powerful network appliance from AAEON yet.
The FWS-8600 network appliance is built to handle powerful network applications, from Unified Threat Management to Software Defined Networks and Network Function Virtualization. These features come from the appliance’s 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, offered with up to 20 cores per processor. The FWS-8600 uses a dual processor configuration, meaning users can have up to 40 processor cores powering their networks. The FWS-8600 also features four lockable hard drive bays, and 16 DDR4 memory slots, with support for up to 512GB of RDIMM ECC RAM.
Thanks to the speed and power of 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, the FWS-8600 can support LAN throughput up to 300~400 Gbs, ten times more than typical machines currently available, according to AAEON testing. This means the FWS-8600 can take the place of multiple network devices, simplifying network infrastructure. With support for network virtualization and software defined networking, the FWS-8600 can ensure high bandwidth and high data flow for the networks.
“With the power of 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, we can offer our customers a powerful, robust network platform that’s ready to handle the needs of the high data, high speed environment of IoT networks,” said Ulysses Yu, Product Manager of AAEON Network Security Division. “From a dedicated SDN controller, to a hybrid switch system, the FWS-8600 with the 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor can power industrial network and IoT solutions.”
The 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor is the latest line of processors built for industrial and enterprise applications. AAEON looks forward to expanding offerings of products featuring the 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
