AVX Series Network Hyperconverged Infrastructure

High-Performance Network Functions Virtualization

High-Performance Network Functions Virtualization

Array network hyperconverged infrastructure platforms provide the best of both worlds – the agility of virtualization combined with the performance of purpose-built networking and security hardware. Deployed in the enterprise or service provider data center, the AVX enables consolidation of services such as next-generation firewalls, SSL VPNs, load balancing, web application firewalls, IPS/IDS and other network services either from Array or other 3rd-party vendors.

AVX virtualization platforms deliver superior performance compared to general-purpose servers by virtualizing and reserving resources such as CPU, RAM, I/O and SSL on a per VA basis. In addition, Array platforms simplify deployment of virtual network functions by automating and optimizing tasks such as resource assignment, CPU pinning, NUMA boundaries, and physical and virtual port mapping to provide both guaranteed SLAs and quicker time-to-market.

Shared Environment, Guaranteed Performance

Mix, match and consolidate networking and security functions from Array and 3rd-party vendors on a purpose-built platform that enables intuitive instantiation, service automation and guaranteed performance per virtual network function.
