The Onload vairant of the Flareon Ultra SFN8522 Dual-Port 10GbE SFP+ Server I/O Adapter adds a suite of enabled software capabilities that provide out-of-the-box support for the ultra-low-latency Onload-accelerated sockets.

These features make the SFN8522-Onload the ultra-low-latency Ethernet adapter of choice to deploy as a key component throughout Financial Trading infrastructures where two ports of 10GbE are required.

CPU-Efficient Networking

The Flareon Ultra SFN8522-Onload dual-port 10GbE Ethernet SFP+ server adapter delivers faster, more efficient processing of network traffic to accelerate a wide range of applications.

The SFN8522-Onload has 8 lanes of PCIe 3.1 minimising latency and maximising bus throughput between the adapter and the host.

Flexibility in Operation

In a virtualised environment the adapter supports hypervisor bypass via SR-IOV providing virtualised guests with near bare-metal network performance.

Onload adds the option of kernel bypass in Linux guests, providing virtualised applications the lowest possible network latency even while virtualised.

Multiple physical functions are also available enabling the ports to be partitioned when connected to 802.1Q trunked switch ports with a logical interface per VLAN being presented to the operating system.*

The SFN8522-Onload Enables Licensed Features

Ultra-Low Latency

The Flareon Ultra SFN8522-Onload offers fast and efficient hardware that optimizes packet flow to and from the user application.

The SFN8522-Onload unlocks the unrivalled sub-microsecond latency both at Layer 2 and TCP and UDP via Onload.

Onload

Onload is Solarflare's industry's leading fully RFC-compliant kernel-bypass user-space TCP/IP stack.

Unrivalled application-to-application TCP and UDP latency is available with no modification to the applications being accelerated.

Applications may communicate via Onload to any other RFC-compliant TCP/IP stack with seamless interoperability
