This is the first time anyone has integrated service classification directly onto a Cavium LiquidIO adapter.

Qosmos, the market leader in embedded Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and network intelligence technology for use in physical, virtualized and in Software Defined Networking (SDN) architectures, is partnering with Cavium to showcase a demonstration of intelligent service chaining running on Cavium’s LiquidIO adapter.

The demo shows a breakthrough combination of intelligence and optimized network processing power:

  • Real-time intelligence is provided by a Qosmos-based service classifier, running on a Cavium LiquidIO adapter
  • High performance is enabled by the Cavium LiquidIO adapter, which accelerates network throughput by offloading vSwitch processing from the x86 host

This new approach brings significant advantages for datacenter operators interested in dynamic, intelligent service chaining and optimized network infrastructure. They can programmatically create any type of service combination quickly and easily in a modern virtualized environment, while benefiting from extreme network performance.

Key technical features:

  • Flow processing directly on the Cavium LiquidIO adapter for Layer 7 classification
  • Open interfaces and integration with OpenStack and SDN controllers
  • Provisioning of network rules consistent with the deployment of services
  • Provisioning using RESTful interface using NETCONF/Yang models

Quotes:
Jerome Tollet, CTO at Qosmos. “This is the first time anyone has integrated service classification directly onto a Cavium LiquidIO adapter. We see a strong interest for this approach, particularly from datacenter operators running virtual cyber security and routing functions.”

Raghib Hussain, Corporate VP/GM and CTO at Cavium: “Qosmos Layer 7 classification technology is impressive and is now supported on both our Cavium OCTEON processors and our LiquidIO adapters, and soon will be supported on our ThunderX platforms. Adding Cavium’s processing power creates a strong platform for service chaining, which datacenters can leverage to optimize network services and performance.”

The live demonstration will be shown at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, March 2 - 5: Cavium Hall 2, Stand 2F60
