Napatech Sets New Industry Standard With 40 Gigabits Lossless Suricata Performance in Standard Servers


COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech™ (OSLO: NAPA.OL), the leading provider of reconfigurable computing platforms, today announced it has improved upon its industry-leading benchmark for Suricata, delivering full line-rate forwarding at all packet sizes, without loss, at 40 Gbps in a standard server platform. The results were achieved under strenuous, real-world networking conditions that included comprehensive and complex cybersecurity rules, matched against a number of simultaneous users, sessions and flows that would be found in the largest hyperscale datacenter networks.
