In a 1U rack space, ET3212A is an open ARM64 network appliance which designs for enterprise applications. The CPU is the robust Marvell OCTEON TX2 CN9670 with 24-core processor. It supports a series of high-performance offload processing upgrade options, meanwhile standard Linux distribution with DPDK VPP software packages will be provided.
ET3212A consumes only 240W even when all the chips are running at high-speed.
With the general-purpose ARM multi-core processor inside the Asterfusion® ET3000A Intelligent Service Processing Unit, developers can deploy almost all network applications such as OVS, VPP and NGINX, into Asterfusion® ET3000A switch.
Coupled with container and virtualization technologies, Asterfusion®ET3000A switch can easily support the porting of the various applications running on x86-based architecture onto the ARM architecture
ET3000 Series are open hardware, any queue algorithm can be implemented in software, using dpdk or vpp.
S/W: we will provide standard Debian linux with kernel source code patched with BSP, also we will provide DPDK source code running on the H/W.
6Wind running on our ET3212A, I’m not sure if they are able to run on ARM especially Pcteon TX, please give more info. We usually run our own applications based on Vpp.
If you have your software and running on NXP, I think it’s no problem on OCTEON almost.
Yes. we support. For S/W: we will provide standard Debian linux with kernel source code patched with BSP, also we will provide DPDK source code running on the H/W.
We can provide 1~4 weeks lead time under 20 units and 4-8 weeks under 100 units so far.
