By CIOReview | Thursday, March 10, 2016

SAN JOSE, CALIF: Provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, cloud, wired and wireless networking–Cavium unveils its newest products supporting Open Compute Project (OCP): based on ThunderX Workload optimized processors and highly configurable Ethernet switches for next generation data center and cloud infrastructure.

Industries are espousing OCP in a very swift fashion as the succeeding genesis of cloud data center emphasizes on efficient data center designs for scalable computing in form of workload optimized servers, scale out storage appliances and flexible network architectures.

Cavium's innovative data center & cloud technology product offerings are aimed towards efficiency, high-performance and flexibility thereby complementing the goals of OCP networking initiatives. The essential key requirements for scalable computing designs are total cost of ownership (TCO) and complexity for which designs deploying Cavium technology offerings are optimized.

The ThunderX product family is Cavium's 64-bit ARMv8-A server processor for next generation Data Center and Cloud applications that features high performance custom cores, single and dual socket configurations, high memory bandwidth and large memory capacity. Integrated hardware accelerators, integrated feature rich high bandwidth network and storage IO, fully virtualized core and IO, and scalable high bandwidth, low latency Ethernet fabric, which affords ThunderX best-in-class performance per dollar and watt are few products which comes under the ThunderX product family.

Cavium's XPliant Ethernet switch family has a target area for both best in class and backbone applications in cloud / enterprise data centers and service provider infrastructure. XPliant Packet Architecture (XPA) enables very high level of table flexibility and extensible header support without any compromise in throughput. XPliant family of Ethernet switches offers centralized shared packet buffer architecture to absorb the large bursts. These highly configurable Ethernet switches which provides bandwidth from 1Tbps to 3.2Tbps in monolithic silicon supports 1G, 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G and 100G interfaces. This family of switches also provides connectivity solutions for embedded applications. The compounding effect of leading performance and remarkable flexibility is attractive across all the segments Cavium will show the following product demonstrations in booth C3 at OCP 2016.
