Centellis® Virtualization Platform
Artesyn’s Centellis® Virtualization Platform is an optimized
application virtualization framework architected for next generation
networks based on OpenFlow for Software Defined Networking
(SDN) and OpenStack for Network Functions 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. Load-balanced
switching provides additional efficiencies to virtual application
ƒƒ Software framework based on industry-standard OpenFlow and
OpenStack software stacks ensures interoperability and a
multi-vendor ecosystem of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs)
ƒƒ Dynamic application/VNF scaling as network traffic changes
minimizes need for over-provisioning
ƒƒ Implementation of the Intel® Accelerated DPDK ensures
performance is optimized for the hardware and virtualized
ƒƒ Implementation on industry standard OCP hardware architecture
ensures a multi-vendor payload ecosystem combined with the
scalability and maintainability of a rack scale architecture
FlowPilot™ Load Balancing
FlowPilot load balancing software adds packet forwarding
techniques beyond standard built-in switching and routing protocol
support. FlowPilot software allows managing the switching
hardware to achieve lowest latency, full wire speed packet, and
flow context aware packet distribution to and from all servers in the
ƒƒ Real-time balancing of traffic to multiple servers for processing
ƒƒ Maintains flow context and packet sequence
ƒƒ Fully transparent for external network elements
ƒƒ Separate traffic into application groups
