Rackmount Network Appliance With Virtualization Optimized Design And Intel Atom C3958 CPU

Lanner NCA-2512 1U Rackmount Network Appliance with High Availability and Virtualization-optimized DesignLanner Inc. has released their NCA-2512, a 1U 19” rackmount network appliance with virtualization optimized design and Intel Atom C3958 CPU (codenamed Denverton).

The NCA-2512 is powered by Intel’s Atom C3958, offering up to 16 cores of processing prowess. The NCA-2512 also features 300W redundant PSUs, 10G interface for SFP+, SR-IOV support, Intel AES-NI and Intel QuickAssist Technology, running at 20G.

Intel QuickAssist Technology and SR-IOV support not only enable hardware-based acceleration services for encryption/compression but also allow different virtual machines in a virtual environment to share a single PCI Express hardware interface, making the NCA-2512 a solution for vCPE, uCPE, SD-WAN and SD-Security on Intel architecture servers.

PCI Express Technology 3.0PCI Express 3.0 is the latest generation of the popular peripheral interface found in virtually every PC, server, and industrial computer. Its high bandwidth, low latency, and cost-to-performance ratio make it a natural choice for many peripheral devices today. Each new generation of PCI Express adds more features, capabilities and bandwidth, which maintains its popularity as a device interconnect.

MindShare’s books take the hard work out of deciphering the specs, and this one follows that tradition. MindShare’s PCI Express Technology book provides a thorough description of the interface with numerous practical examples that illustrate the concepts. Written in a tutorial style, this book is ideal for anyone new to PCI Express. At the same time, its thorough coverage of the details makes it an essential resource for seasoned veterans.

Essential topics covered include:

  • PCI Express Origins
  • Configuration Space and Access Methods
  • Enumeration Process
  • Packet Types and Fields
  • Transaction Ordering
  • Traffic Classes, Virtual Channels and Arbitration (QoS)
  • Flow Control
  • ACK/NAK Protocol
  • Logical PHY (8b/10b, 128b/130b, Scrambling)
  • Electrical PHY
  • Link Training and Initialization
  • Interrupt Delivery (Legacy, MSI, MSI-X)
  • Error Detection and Reporting
  • Power Management (for both software and hardware)
  • 2.0 and 2.1 Features (such as 5.0GT/s, TLP Hints, and Multi-Casting)
  • 3.0 Features (such as 8.0GT/s, and a new encoding scheme)
  • Considerations for High Speed Signaling (such as Equalization)
