The Netgate® CPIC-8955 Accelerator Card allows servers to achieve sustained throughput of up to 50 Gbps. The CPIC-8955 accelerator card features a standard PCIe 2.2 interface that is easily deployed in virtually any major PC, workstation or server platform. By utilizing the PCIe bus, it is ideally suited for PCIe coprocessor-based IPSec or TLS security applications such as SSL, OpenSSL*, and NGINX. Disk optimization and de-duplication tasks also benefit through the data compression functionality.
When it comes to encryption processing and establishing connections, businesses can now achieve up to 3.5X the equivalent TLS performance of an unaccelerated E5 Xeon server with 20 cores when using the new Netgate® CPIC-8955 Accelerator Card.2 The Netgate® CPIC-8955 Accelerator Card works with the newly-released OpenSSL 1.1.0 to deliver nearly 35,000 2K RSA TPS,3 and up to 50 Gbps of add-in hardware cryptographic acceleration to help offload the performance demands of securing and routing Internet traffic. In addition, the acceleration offload offered by the CPIC-8955 acts to preserve processor cycles for application and control processing.
The CPIC-8955 can offload VPN processing from VPN concentrators and software-based firewalls to improve overall network efficiency while reducing CPU overhead. A single CPIC-8955 accelerator card allows PCIe systems to achieve a sustained throughput of up to 50 Gbps. The CPIC-8955 accelerator features a standard PCIe 2.2 interface that can be deployed in virtually any major PC, workstation or server platform utilizing a PCIe bus and is ideally suited for PCIe coprocessor-based IPSec or TLS security applications such as SSL, OpenSSL, and nginX. Disk optimization and de-duplication also benefit through the data compression functionality.
