Network appliance for network security and virtualisation

The Lanner NCA-6210, a 2U x86 rackmount network appliance built with the Intel Xeon Scalable processor platform and C621/C627 chipset, features powerful networking processing capability, higher throughput for virtualisation applications, up to 640GB DDR4 2666MHz REG DIMM and the support for 1.5x memory bandwidth as previous generation Intel Xeon processor based server platforms.

The NCA-6210 benefits from the Intel Xeon Scalable Processor’s networking-centric value propositions, including Intel QuickAssist Technology, new Intel AVX-512 instructions, IntelHyperscan and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK).

The integrated 100Gbps Intel QuickAssist technology is a hardware technology that accelerates critical workloads such as data compression and cryptography across server, storage and network applications. In addition, the new Intel AVX-512 instructionssignificantly accelerates performance for workloads and usages such as image and audio/video processing.

Optimised for these high performance processors, the Intel Hyperscan technology accelerates pattern recognition for deep packet inspection. What’s more, up to 4.2x higher virtualised throughput versus a 4 year-old system is possible because each CPU comprises 28 cores; and packet processing efficiency is greatly enhanced with DPDK support, up to 77% faster versus the prior generation.

Finally, the NCA-6210 features up to 8 NIC modules slots and takes advantage of Lanner’s F.A.S.T. solutions, which are purpose-built modular kits developed to work with Lanner’s high-end network computing appliances, delivering flexibility, adaptability, scalability and transformability by way of 1/10/40/100G cooper/fiber interface, PoE/TAP/WiFi connectivity, NVMe SSD storage, 4K video transcoding and PCI-E expansion capabilities.

The NCA-6210’s other notable features include 2x GbE RJ45 or 2x 10G SFP+ management ports, 2x 3.5” or 2x 2.5” external HDD bays, 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1x RJ45 and 1x mini USB consoles, 1x optional PCI-E*16 FH/HL, 1+1 ATX redundant PSUs and 4x individual hot-swappable cooling fans.
