The amount of data surges unprecedented by increased connectivity and the development of digitization of various aspects of daily life. Higher throughput platforms are required to handle and process the exponential growth of digital data not only in data transfer, but also in storage and analysis. Real-time communication and high-performance computing are major to effectively execute various kinds of applications. As there are increasing sophistication of cyber threats, Network appliances/storage server/edge AI servers with higher throughput are crucial to efficiently inspect and filter network traffic for potential threat and attack to maintain the integrity and security of the network.

High Throughput Network Appliances with PCIe Gen5 NIC
AEWIN offers high performance network appliances/storage server/edge AI server with flexible PCIe Gen5 expansion slots for excellent scalability. It is ready for NVIDIA Mellanox ConnectX-7 PCIe Gen5 NIC to enable high throughput with low TCO. Here we introduce a pre-tested solution of BAS-6101 with NVIDIA ConnectX-7 200GbE NIC.

  • BAS-6101

BAS-6101A is a 2U edge server. It supports the most advanced AMD Bergamo/Genoa processor, 24x DDR5 slots, 6x PCIe Gen5 x16 slots (4x FHFL, 2x FHHL), 2x HHHL PCIe Gen4 x8 slots, 6x SATA/NVMe SSD, and 1x OCP 3.0 SFF Gen5 slot. It also offers IPMI function to simplify local/remote management. AEWIN develops BAS-6101A as general-purpose server or edge AI server for diverse applications. Different add-on cards (e.g. GPU/AI card, QAT card, encryption card, smart NIC such as ConnectX-7 NIC or accelerator card) can be installed with ease to satisfy various kinds of requirements.

  • NVIDIA Mellanox ConnectX-7 NIC

ConnectX-7 NIC series are the PCIe Gen5 ethernet cards provided by NVIDIA Mellanox. There are multiple options including 25GbE, 50GbE, 100GbE, 200GbE, and 400GbE. By installing selected NVIDIA ConnectX-7 NICs in AEWIN platforms, tailored solution with the best TCO can be deployed. ConnectX-7 family provides hardware-accelerated networking, storage, security, and manageability services with features in including RoCE & SR-IOV for networking, NVMe-of over TCP/RoCE for storage accelerations, and IPsec/TLS/MACsec encryption/decryption & root-of-trust for cybersecurity.

  • High Throughput Edge Server Solution: BAS-6101+ NVIDIA ConnectX-7 NIC

AEWIN installed and tested NVIDIA Mellanox ConnectX-7 200GbE NIC (Dual QSFP112) in BAS-6101 and the test results will be shared in white paper for your reference. With multiple NVIDIA ConnectX-7 NIC installed, the system is capable of providing smooth transmission and reliable performance for bandwidth-intensive applications of Networking and Storage. With additional GPU cards installed, AI powered cybersecurity solution can efficiently identify, detect, and react to cyber-attacks with the ability to learn automatically and further analyze the data for better response.
