According to IDC, cloud spending, including cloud services and the technology to enable these services, will surge by 25% in 2014, reaching over $100B. This includes Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a service (PaaS) and virtualized Enterprise functionality. 1 Cavium's latest OCTEON processors were specifically designed for cloud, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Verification (NFV) architectures. The processors have optimized instruction sets and accelerators that deliver scalable performance, within the strict power limits of large data centers.

Cavium's OCTEON family of multi-core MIPS64® processors provide up to 120GHz of 64-bit processing and targets high-performance, high-throughput, service-rich applications for Cloud, Secure Data Center, Wireless Infrastructure, Enterprise and Storage equipment. The family includes a range of software compatible processors, with up to 48 cnMIPS64 III cores, over 500 application acceleration engines, including integrated high-performance search processing leveraged from Cavium's NEURON Search™ processors, chip-to-chip interconnect and an innovative real-time PowerMin™ power manager, providing one of the highest compute and services performance of any standard ISA processor.

Cavium's TurboDPI™ software will allow OEMs to quickly deploy enterprise and cloud-based services that require high performance deep packet inspection processing of the ever growing volume of data.

Cavium's NITROX Security Processors provide solutions with up to 300K RSA ops/sec, 40Gbps of encryption bandwidth, features such as SRIOV, high PCIe bandwidth while delivering extremely high performance in wired and wireless network security applications and SSL based secure e-Business.

Cavium's Intelligent Network and Security Adapters provide best-in-class offload solutions enabling quick time to market with top of the line features such as 10 - 40Gbps TOE, SDN, and up to 60Gbps of Crypto offload.

Cavium PACE partners, 6WIND and Qosmos will also be demonstrating their SDN, NFV and DPI solutions on Cavium OCTEON silicon, LiquidIO and NITROX adapters.

Cavium will feature the following product demonstrations in booth # 2127 during Interop expo hours:

  • OCTEON® Multicore Processors for a range of energy efficient and high–performance platforms
    • Live Line–Rate Deep Packet Inspection Platform using Cavium's flagship OCTEON multi-core processors and Cavium's market–leading TurboDPI Application Software suite coupled to the Qosmos ixEngine®

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
