IEI Releases High Flexible and Agile Network Appliance – PUZZLE Series

IEI PUZZLE series is the next generation product of network appliance which includes a broad portfolio of x86-based and ARM-based network platform. It is built with the latest generation Intel, AMD, Marvell, NXP or Cavium processors, and Aquantia, Intel, Broadcom, Mellanox network interface controllers.These products are suited to handle proprietary network and uCPE (Universal Customer Premise Equipment) to offer real-time software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) services with any additional virtual network functions (VNF) services. This series is well ready for Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), Wireless Gateway, WAN Optimization, Unified Threat Management (UTM), Intrusion Detection System(IDS) and Application Delivery Controller (ADC).It also achieves the needs of cost efficient, compact, rugged and reliable solutions required in industrial environments.

In order to upgrade the service, IEI offers the PUZZLE Finder software application to provide the most popular and configured applications such as Open vSwitch (OVS), Netconf, Kubernetes, QEMU-KVM and Docker containerization that help users quickly develop environment and network applications. It can gather and manage the system information, resource monitoring, and software upgrade.

Moreover, smart NIC is getting more and more important. Faster networking and data center impose too much networking overhead on the CPU cores. Not a doubt, the compute virtualization, software-defined storage (SDS), hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) and other network applications make this problem worse, as they create more east-west traffic.

IEI PulM series, the smarter NICs, can resolve this virtualization to make packet processing faster and more efficient at lower cost than standard CPUs. It is ideal for users who want to, for instance, build up a network server with virtual machine and provide storage function. IEI provides four kinds of NIC, from Aquantia, Intel, Broadcom to Mellanox, with different network speed (1G, 2.5G, 5G, 10G or 25G).

AI (Artificial Intelligence) enables machine intelligent by using a variety of training models to simulate and infer the status or appearance of object.The PUZZLE series is an AI hardware ready system ideal for deep learning inference computing to help you offer faster, deeper insights to your customers and your business. It supports graphics cards, Mustang-F100 and Mustang-V100 AI accelerator cards, and provides additional computational power and end-to-end solution to help run your tasks more efficiently. Together with the NVIDIA® TensorRT, QNAP® QuAI, and Intel® OpenVINO® AI development toolkit, you are able to deploy your AI solutions faster than ever.
