Solarflare XtremeScale Ethernet NIC Adapters

Solarflare Server Adapters provide the highest possible line-rate performance, excel in small message processing, and have demonstrated performance leadership in the most demanding application environments. Solarflare’s Ethernet adapters combine the price point of standard NICs with the capabilities of “smart” NICs and our Universal Kernel Bypass (UKB) technologies to deliver ultra high bandwidth, ultra low latency, and ultra scale connectivity to your ultra scale data center

8000 Series Adapters

The Solarflare’s XtremeScale 8000 Series adapters provide a bandwidth up to 100Gbs, latencies well below 1usec and the XtremePacket engine delivers 1000s of flow/virtual NICs per adapter. The APIs to software define the adapter enabling a wide range of capabilities and through packet filtering and secure server lockdown you get a solid NIC-level security.
