New NAR-7090 supports Dual-Core and Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processors

2007-04-03  Taipei,Taiwan
Portwell Inc., a world-leading innovator in the industry of Communication Appliances ­ (Network Security, Network Management, Network Gateway), announces NAR-7090, a new high computing power and high bandwidth dual 64-bit Intel® Xeon® processor platform that extends the power of Portwell existing communication appliance portfolio. Using the Intel® 5000P chipset to support either the Dual-Core Intel® Xeon processor 5100 series or the Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor E5335 with 1333 MHz front side bus, the NAR-7090 facilitates the ultimate computing and I/O performance for software providers who need a platform with greater computing performance reliability and manageability, greater power efficiency, higher throughput, faster memory and I/O bandwidth, faster data movement and protection against drive/data failure.

NAR-7090, in 2U height, features extremely high and flexible network bandwidth configurations that range up to 16 PCI-e SFP connectors or 34 PCI-e copper ports. The modular design for front-access network ports can be configured as copper, SFP, copper bypass or fiber bypass. Available now, NAR-7090 dual CPU platform is the ideal solution for security applications such as Enterprise Internet Security, Firewall, WAN optimization, Unified Threat Management and Triple Play broadcasting.

Smaller Footprint and Decreased Operating Costs

"Today’s communications market trends indicate a continued need to improve application performance which results in demands for higher computing power, manageability and creates an increasing need for greater security," says Rex Dong, Senior VP of Communication Appliance Business Unit, Portwell, Inc.

"However, the challenge is to raise the stakes while decreasing operating costs, integrating legacy and emerging applications. The solution lies in platforms such as NAR-7090, a high-performance CA platform for the Enterprise that utilizes the latest quad-core or dual-core Intel® Xeon® processors, and provides a smaller form factor (20inch) that operates in a more compact network environment at reduced power."

High performance accompany with flexibility

"The Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor provides breakthrough performance and energy-efficiency for compute-intensive communications platforms," said Joe Jensen, General Manager of Intel’s Embedded Markets Division. "Customers can benefit from quad core computing power with the Portwell NAR-7090 and its variety of Ethernet modules and connecting capabilities."

According to Kin Tse Hong, AVP of Product Marketing Dep., Portwell Inc., the modular design for front-access network ports on the new NAR-7090 can be configured as copper, SFP, copper bypass or fiber bypass module. From the traditional Copper or Fiber module, customer also can choose programmable bypass module. In practice, the programmable bypass mode allows network packets to flow in and out unattended when the appliance is shutting down. The programmable next boot-up status means that the Bypass or Open mode can be determined in advance before system shut down. This means that the system can be predetermined to reboot to the preferred status and is immediately ready to serve. Instant status can be changed on the fly by a series of software commands. By providing a self-governing Watchdog Timer for each Bypass segment and each segment can operate independently.

"All in all," says Kin Tse Hong, "the new NAR-7090 offers software providers the opportunity to meet the needs of today’s security-conscious Enterprise by delivering server-class performance in a compact footprint, at a competitive price." "NAR-7090 system will satisfy customers who look for the variety of Ethernet card module design and can be very flexible to configure for different allocations".
