Specialist in network appliances and embedded systems, IBASE Technology has announced its latest FWA8600 1U rackmount network security appliance based on the scalable Intel Xeon Processor D-2100 series and with up to 29xGbE ports. This highly scalable system is designed for managing data driven workloads and enabling robust levels of performance in enterprise network security, Unified Threat Management and WAN optimisation applications.
The FWA8600 supports up to 128GB RDIMM with four DDR4-2666 DIMM sockets and one Intel I210-AT Ethernet controller. The device comes with network interface card (NIC) slots to accommodate up to three IBN cards with eight GbE ports each and one IBN-P401Q card for a maximum of 29 GbE ports.
For flexible I/O connectivity and expansion features, it offers a PCIe eight slot, an M.2 expansion slot to interface with SATA 3.0 and PCIe four bus for high data throughput, as well as two USB 3.0, and an RJ45 serial console with LCM display for easy operation. LAN bypass is available in certain configuration.
"The FWA8600 features Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0 with the IBASE IDN100 module to allow users to remotely manage and monitor systems even without an operating system,” said Jason Ko, senior product manager at IBASE. "As an ideal platform for cloud computing and data centres, it also supports Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0) to provide hardware-based security data that encrypts data and protects authentication credentials from hackers.”
