The X2541 single-port 10/25/40/50/100GbE Ethernet NIC is an incredibly powerful member of the X2 family of XtremeScale products that redefine the price/performance of standard NICs for modern data centers.

Designed from the ground up for virtualized dense server environments Solarflare XtremeScale X2 adapters are extremely cost-effective NICs for Ethernet connectivity. At the same time, XtremeScale acceleration provides incredibly low latency and throughput needed for today's modern class of applications. X2 is a very secure standard NIC with integrated hardware firewalls. XtremeScale X2 is a general-purpose NIC with 2,048 Virtual NICs, programmable packet processing engine for network off-load and real-time packet/flow capture required by your network performance management and analytics platforms.

 

Product Features

  • Acceleration services allow distributed apps to scale-out
    The challenge with distributed apps is keeping hardware and system latency low while scaling to thousands of tasks running across thousands of cores. The X2541 harnesses kernel bypass acceleration to deliver superior small packet performance with hardware latency as low as one-half a microsecond. Solarflare kernel bypass technologies include Onload and DPDK acceleration services, and provide servers the headroom needed to handle more processes in the same amount of time and with fewer servers. Solarflare acceleration technology can also be used to build ultra-low latency NVMe all-flash storage fabrics. X2541 NICs configured for NVMe over standard TCP - and with kernel bypass acceleration - provide the same performance as NVMe fabrics based on special-purpose RDMA fabrics.
  • Precision time stamping for accurate synchronization
    The X2541 supports the Precision Timing Protocol (PTP) fabric service for apps that require synchronized time stamping of packets down to the single-digit nanosecond.
  • Protect traffic "inside" the data center by deploying amazing standard NICs with HW security onboard
    ServerLock technology inside every X2541 NIC complements firewall perimeter security. It is possible to scale security inside your data center by using micro-segmentation to scale packet surveillance, filtering, cloaking and firewalling with every server.
  • Real-time telemetry feeds NPM & analytics
    The X2541 provides real-time monitoring, inspection, and capture of packets needed for network performance management, security analytics, or compliance. Packet data can be forwarded to a libpcap API or saved to a file with hardware timestamps.
  • A platform for micro-segmented NIC fabric services
    For modern data centers, X2541 lays another foundation for NIC-based network virtualization needed for their highly-distributed applications with thousands of inter-connected web server, machine learning, and big data workloads. X2541 is a great standard NIC platform that can establish ultra-scale connectivity to thousands of virtual NICs, while at the same time providing real-time packet and flow information. The combination of ultra-high bandwidth, ultra-low latency, ultra-scale connectivity and packet telemetry, allows X2541 NICs to serve as a perfect commercial platform for micro-segmented NIC fabric services that scale with each server, VM or container.
  • Incredibly cost-effective NICs
    Solarflare makes data center-wide deployment of these capabilities cost-effective. Although X2541 NICs provide superior performance and the SmartNIC-like ability to enable network services, a 100GbE X2 NIC from Solarflare offers a cost advantage.

Key Selling Points

  • Incredibly cost-effective 100G NIC
  • Standard 100G NIC with half-microsecond hardware latency, and the ability to segment a single NIC into thousands of vNICs or 8x competitive NICs
  • Ultra-low latency and ultra-scale connectivity power a more efficient data center that scales higher with more workloads per server and/or less servers
  • Accelerates database caching and software load balancing up to 4x
  • Allows IT organizations to deploy a layer of security on every server using a general-purpose NIC
  • Provides valuable real-time packet and flow data for you to monitor, capture and analyze
