Centellis Virtualization Platform (VP)
By Artesyn Embedded Technologies
Artesyn's Centellis® Virtualization Platform is an application virtualization hardware/software platform architected for next generation networks based on OpenFlow for Software Defined Networking (SDN) and OpenStack for Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The platform enables service providers to run multiple virtualized applications such as firewall, DPI, security, or session border controller on a single hardware platform saving both capital expense and operating expense by eliminating the need for multiple application-specific hardware platforms.
- Software framework based on industry standard OpenFlow and OpenStack software stacks ensures interoperability and a multi-vendor ecosystem of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs)
- Implementation of the IntelÂ® Accelerated DPDK ensures performance is optimized for the hardware and virtualized environment
- Open ATCA hardware architecture ensures a multi-vendor payload ecosystem combined with the scalability and maintainability of a bladed architecture
- Up to 160Gb/sec server interconnect provides the bandwidth required for line-rate application processing
