FREMONT, CA: Cyber Security and application delivery solutions provider Radware recently claims that the achievement of a sustained virtualized performance above industry standards for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) that uses an OpenStack environment. A transfer rate up to 20 Gbps with OpenStack in an NFV environment is possible with the Alteon NG Virtual Appliance.

The Alteon NG VA runs natively in OpenStack and has by far achieved an industry record transfer rate of 10 Gigabits per second. The Alteon NG VA performance was monitored using the partner technology 6WIND’s Virtual accelerator and a transfer rate of 20 Gbps was recorded post incorporation of the Virtual Accelerator from 6WIND. According to a few surveys it has been noted that the demand on the network will accelerate exponentially as quad-play services and the Internet of Things takes off.

The running of OpenStack environments supporting the high network performance requirements of large carrier and enterprise networks is a big challenge. Radware’s Alteon NG ADC is engineered to meet the performance required to aid today’s virtual networking infrastructure. The Alteon NG functions as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) and powers the standard KVM hypervisor environments.

 "We are committed to unlocking the potential of the NFV architecture and believe driving standards is essential to ensure operators can build networks that withstand the demand placed upon them today and into the future," comments Frank Yue, Director, Solution Marketing, Application Delivery, Radware.
