ADLINK: network appliance with eight network interface module slots

ADLINK introduced our latest network appliance with the most flexible I/O options currently available on the market. With eight NIM (Network Interface Module) slots and five 2.5’’ HDD drive bays, the CSA-7200 offers extended configuration possibilities for the network security market and is our initial network appliance built using MICA (Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture), which enables fast reconfiguration and reduces time-to-market for new applications.

The CSA-7200 is based on the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3/v4 workstation platform and offers a highly scalable design in a compact 2U rackmount form factor for packet inspection, firewall, load balancer, network monitoring, security gateway and voice gateway applications. The CSA-7200 includes flexible storage options: three hot-swappable 2.5-inch SATA drive bays, and two M.2 PCIe/SATA solid-state drives for extra storage. Eight NIM expansion slots and six different NIMs, including 2/4/8/Copper/SFP/SFP+ port types, offer extensive flexibility. An advanced LAN bypass feature allow to set each NIM’s LAN bypass mode individually, through the BIOS or IPMI interface. Additional I/O includes two 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet ports, one RJ-45 serial port, two USB 3.0 ports, and one VGA port for graphics.

For the high performance requirements of network security applications, the CSA-7200 features the Intel Xeon E5 processor with the Intel C610 chipset and up to 30 MB of L2 cache. Twelve 1600/1860/2133 MHz DIMM sockets provide up to 384 GB of DDR4 ECC memory.

The CSA-7200 performs data packet inspection for network data transfer and integrates Wind River Titanium Server, as well as other open source software including Intel DPDK, Open vSwitch and nDPI, to facilitate the building of packet parsing applications. The CSA-7200 also includes support for ADLINK PacketManager, which provides the data plane software stack for dynamic Layer 3 forwarding and flow-based forwarding, accelerating application development.

For monitoring, the CSA-7200 offers an intelligent chassis management system that supports SOL for CPU nodes, PSU, and adaptive fan speeds. System management is available through a CLI or web interface and is IPMI 2.0-compliant.

As part of ADLINK’s new MICA platform, the CSA-7200 offers additional options for configuration, giving OEMs and system integrators faster development and a better cost-performance ratio. With the MICA platform, computing, storage, and I/O resources are modularized for flexibility and then recombined as needed for a specific application. Network appliances based on MICA assimilate the latest Internet data center technologies, yet also integrate aspects of traditional ICT (information and communications technology), such as modular architectures, hardware-assisted acceleration, and carrier-grade design standards.
