Innovium Releases Industry’s Most Advanced Switch Software Platform for High Performance Data Center Networking

Innovium’s production-ready SDK delivers the only solution for comprehensive tunneling, programmability and analytics capabilities for up to 12.8Tbps performance.

San Jose, CA – February 14, 2018 – Innovium, Inc., a leading provider of networking solutions for data centers, today announced that it has released an advanced switch software platform for high performance networking. The Innovium software development kit (SDK) is the industry’s first and only production-ready software development kit that delivers comprehensive tunneling, programmability and analytics capabilities for up to 12.8Tbps performance.

Innovium’s SDK for TERALYNX™ was developed from a clean sheet with modern design techniques using a ground-up software architecture. This has resulted in code that is highly efficient and robust with superior performance. Key differentiating capabilities and benefits include:

  • High performance SDK available through multiple unique innovations such as support for multi-threading and concurrent fast access to SDK functions, bulk route table updates, support for modern RPC mechanisms from NOS or controller, and an optimized DMA engine.
  • Comprehensive set of tunneling features that includes VXLAN switching and routing to support widely deployed overlay and DCI scenarios, without impacting performance.
  • Line-rate, standards-based programmability which allows for quick and seamless addition of new or custom features and protocols. This helps with investment protection of network infrastructure.
  • Rich set of telemetry and visibility features including sFlow and FlexMirroring to unlock Innovium’s extensive FLASHLIGHT analytics capabilities to enable autonomous networks.

Innovium’s TERALYNX™ SDK includes a comprehensive set of production-ready data center features, including standard features such as Layer 2, Layer 3 – both IPv4 and IPv6, LAG, ECMP, ACLs, QoS and Port Management features. The SDK is highly resilient and supports key, high availability features to enable in-service software upgrade (ISSU). Further, the SDK is highly portable across CPU Architectures and Operating Systems (OSs), as it resides in “user space”. The SDK comes with an Innovium Shell, useful for simplified diagnostics, rapid prototyping and seamless test automation.

The Innovium TERALYNX™ product line, fueled by customer-focused innovation, delivers the fastest and most scalable Ethernet switch silicon family with leading analytics, programmability, and power efficiency. TERALYNX is the industry’s first switch that achieves 12.8 Terabits per second (Tbps) performance in a single-chip, while delivering robust tunneling, large buffers, line-rate programmability, best-in-class low-latency and breakthrough telemetry, resulting in a 6x advantage compared to alternatives. TERALYNX includes broad support for 10/25/40/50/100/200/400GbE Ethernet standards that can be flexibly configured to deliver 128 ports of 100GbE, 64 ports of 200GbE or 32 ports of 400GbE in a single device.
