To provision Cloud Services in rack-scale networks, GDN-Traffic Classifier forwards packets and load balances traffic across numerous hosts. For frequently accessed tables, the Top-of-Rack (TOR) evenly distributes network traffic across all of the machines that can service the same request.

Algo-Logic’s Gateware Defined Networking® (GDN) Traffic Classifier can selectively forward packets from a 40 Gbps or 100 Gbps input port to multiple 10 Gbps or 40 Gbps endpoints within a datacenter rack. Via software user-interface, rules can be programmed in the TOR to load the switching rules that determine how packets are switched and translated.

By using GDN TOR Traffic Classifier rather than traditional x86/software switches, network operators can substantially increase their network performance with not only high throughput, but also reduce their network latency and power resulting in significantly lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

To achieve this level of high performance, deterministic low latency, high throughput, and low power in datacenters networks, Algo-Logic designs 10/40/100 Gbps TOR Traffic Classifiers that use its proprietary Associative Search Accelerator (ASA) and Hyper-speed Content Flow Manager (HCFM) GDN cores. Algo-Logic Systems' 10/40/100 Gbps GDN Traffic Classifier solutions are available today.
