We have and exciting week planed for Interop 2013 Las Vages. Make sure to stop by and check our booth and catch one of our great demos at Interop.  We will demonstrate integration of OpenStack and OpenFlow controller and our ConnectX/SwitchX:


  • Gain 5x performance improvement by using Cinder & iSER driver.
  • Use of eSwitch and SR-IOV as the underlying technology to support better HW offloads of security and QoS features integrated with OpenStack Dashboard.
  • OpenFlow agent on the NIC to work around the limitations of Quantum API.


We will also have a demo of ConnectX-3 Pro Overlay Networks Demo by Gadi Singer.

Showing a server sending traffic with NVGRE from several Virtual Machines that runs over Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V. ConnectX-3 Pro is the world’s first hardware-based Overlay Network offload adapter, during the demo we will show improved performance and reduced  CPU overhead using the ConnectX-3 Pro NVGRE hardware offload engine. Without the offload engine for NVGRE performance is limited due to CPU utilization reaching 100%.Enabling the NVGRE HW offload will enable line rate performance while reducing the CPU overhead.


We are looking forward to you stopping by and giving us a minute to give you a demo of our latest and greatest. Make sure to let them know you read about this in the community and If you do stop by and check out one of the demos I would love to hear your feedback.
