Unique Application Performance

SFN7002F's unique hardware-accelerated virtualized NIC (vNIC) architecture provides concrete benefits to multi-core computing. In many cases, network traffic that is directed to a single CPU core can overload the core and create a performance bottleneck. SFN7002F can use up to 2048 vNICs and 240 virtual functions to implement Receive Side Scaling (RSS) and accelerate Receive Flow Steering (RFS) to distribute network traffic across multiple cores. These technologies allow the networking I/O processing to be spread across the available CPU cores, eliminating processing bottlenecks and dramatically improving application performance and scalability. SFN7002F also improves data intensive key value storage applications such as NoSQL, memcached, Couchbase and other big data applications by accelerating throughput and reducing latency for compute and Ethernet storage. SFN7002F also features hardware acceleration to optimize packet delivery, such as integrated layer 2 switching capability and VLAN insertion/ removal, along with TCP segmentation offload (TSO) to reduce CPU load.

Scalable, Hardware-Assisted Virtualization

With 10x the number of vNICs and virtual PCIe functions than the competition, SFN7002F performance scales as the number of CPU cores and VMs increase, supporting more applications per physical server, i.e., greater VM density.SFN7002Falso supports NetQueue, VMQ, and SR-IOV used to accelerate guest applications in leading hypervisors, such as ESXi, Hyper-V, KVM, and Xen. This relieves network I/O bottlenecks dedicating full network bandwidth directly to VMs while maintaining full hypervisor management services. Sixteen physical PCIe functions enable finer granularity and greater scalability when allocating Quality of Service for optimized bandwidth utilization as I/O dynamically fluctuates.

Platform for Delivering Network Services

Flareon SFN7002F enables deploying servers for a wide range of applications with a single server adapter. SFN7002F withAppFlex™ technology provides the flexibility to selectively add and control services. With an OpenOnload® upgrade, SFN7002F can bypass kernel and networking overheads to deliver unmatched message rates with ultra low latency and low jitter. Upgrades for packet capture and precision time synchronization (PTP) with hardware time stamping are also available.
