IntelŽ Atom™ Processor C2000 with IntelŽ QuickAssist Technology
The growing complexity and bandwidth requirements of network security applications require greater computational resources. The Portwell CAR-2050 utilizes the Intel Atom processor C2000 SoC with Intel QuickAssist Technology, providing hardware-based crypto acceleration (encryption/decryption) that offload cryptographic processing from the CPU core, to meet the increasing needs of the network security market.
High Performance Computing with Great Flexibility
Portwell’s CAR-2050 delivers great computing performance by utilizing the new 8-core IntelŽ Atom™ processor C2000 SoC technology with 1M L2 Cache per 2 cores, x16 Lanes, 4 controllers. In addition, the CAR-2050 provides flexibility system configuration options with maximum 22 ports by two swappable slots for Portwell’s NIC modules and six onboard ports with two segments of intelligent bypass function, and it also supports two standard full-height PCIe cards and two 3.5” HDDs or four 2.5” HDDs.
Portwell’s Intelligent Bypass Design
The bypass function of Portwell’s own design ensures important networking tasks never stop working even when the appliance experiences a software crash or power failure. The CAR-2050 comes with Portwell’s latest 3rd generation bypass interface. It supports Normal, Bypass, and Open modes, and it allows users to adjust the bypass setting either via BIOS or operation system.
