June News: High-performance, Programmable 400G & 100G Switch Solutions for Data Center and Cloud-based Applications

Why Programmable Matters?

There have been discussions about the programmability of the data center for a long time, where IT managers can more holistically manage their data center switches and other networking components. 

The ever-increasing rise of cloud applications and services, the expanding use of video in many applications, all adds to a high volume of data. And, all this data traffic is built on data centers.

Compared to standard fixed-function switches, operators are looking for flexible programmable switches that allow a greater control of the data center. Programmable switch ASICs not only can customize the behavior of switches, but also exploit unique characteristics of data centers to scale.

The Benefits of Programmable

Programmable switch ASICs deliver complete customized flexibility without significantly sacrificing performance, increasing power, or adding to costs. This enables a more efficient packet pipeline; users are also able to customize the behavior of physical switches to meet their needs. Programmable switches help to build scalable infrastructure services and realize the benefits of automation. Meanwhile, low latency, high throughput, and lower costs are all benefits that operators are chasing.

The 400G Programmable DCS810 Switch

Edgecore has launched the industry’s first 12.8Tb/s P4-programmable open switch on the market – the DCS810. The switch is based on the latest Intel Tofino 2 chipset with full programmable switching ability, allowing network architects to replace legacy fixed-function switches with P4-programmable switches and deliver up to 12.8 Tb/s throughput.

The DCS810 can be deployed as a leaf switch supports 25/50/100G interfaces to servers or routers with 100/400G uplinks, or deployed as a spine switch supports 100/400G leaf and spine interconnects. In addition, the protocol-independent switch architecture (PISA) allows users to define new protocols and forwarding functions easily. The switch can also function as an ultra-high bandwidth packet broker, load balancer, telemetry or an analytics engine that is capable of handling the most demanding workloads in distributed applications.
