This advanced network appliance is scalable, customizable and has great expansion capabilities.  Through the PCIe 3.0, the NA570 can integrate up to 24 Gigabit Ethernet portsor up to 4 ports at 10GbE.  The standard NA570 comes with 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports using Intel® i210AT controller and supports 2 groups of LAN bypass segments.  Four DDR3 1600 MHz DIMM sockets can provide storage of up to 32 GB and support both ECC and non-ECC memory types.  To enhance reliability, this SMB platform supports data protection via 2 pairs of latch-type LAN bypass functions for fail-over option and features BIOS console redirection.Axiomtek’s network appliance platform is suitable for a variety of applications including VPN, firewall and security applications, network bandwidth controller, WAN accelerator and surveillance system.

“Axiomtek’s outstanding NA570 network appliance product offers a greater range of processor choices and expansion capabilities that allows developers to configure their network solutions based on performance requirements and price points,” said Joyce Wu, Product Manager of Product & Marketing Division at Axiomtek.  “The Intel® AES New Instruction (AES-NI) enhancements included with NA570 use hardware-based acceleration to encrypt and decrypt data.  It also supports the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK), a set of software libraries that can improve packet processing performance by up to ten times.  It can achieve over 80 Mbps throughput on a single Intel® Xeon® processor.”

The NA570 features two internal 2.5″ SATA hard drives and one CompactFlash™ socket for storing event logs.  In order to address the various network application needs, the appliance also features one console port, two USB 2.0 ports and a VGA port.  There is a front-facing LCD module activity indicator for convenient monitoring of power and HDD activity.  The system also supports mainstream Linux operating systems.

Axiomtek’s NA570 is one of the most advanced, high performance network appliances of its kind.  It will be available shortly in March of 2014.
