SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 16 -- IP Infusion, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced Ethernet and IP services, today announced the ZebOS-XP, a next generation network platform designed to help build today’s and tomorrow’s terabit scale networks and network devices. The ZebOS-XP (ZebOS Extended Performance) software architecture delivers superior scaling and performance to support current and future multiprocessor hardware platforms, helping ensure future scalability. ZebOS-XP has the critical software-defined networking (SDN) ready features with an end-to-end solution for fast, time-to-market implementation of next generation networks.
New network infrastructure requirements are placing greater demands on software-defined networking, data center virtualization, cloud computing, high performance computing, data warehousing, and disaster recovering strategies. The ZebOS-XP platform infrastructure was created from the ground up to address these high demands of scale and performance in mission critical mobile backhaul, carrier transport, and data center networks.
With its roots in the original ZebOS network operating system, ZebOS-XP 1.0 continues to be based on split control plane design and supports all hardware and software supported in existing ZebOS software release versions 7.10.x or earlier.
In performance and scalability tests which compared the ZebOS-XP control plane platform with the existing ZebOS control plane platform, the ZebOS-XP has 2 to 4+ times the scaling advantage when subjected to rapid increases in IP sessions and total bandwidth requirements. When compared to current shipping versions of ZebOS, ZebOS-XP has up to 8X ECMP route scaling for Layer 3 unicast routing protocols, and significantly improved convergence time for Layer 2 Switching and Layer 3 unicast routing. The full performance report is available on the IP Infusion website.
The ZebOS-XP platform provides significant performance improvements over the previous ZebOS generation, including:
“The growing need to support billions of new mobile users, demands from the advent of Big Data, and the promise of software-defined networks, puts network equipment manufacturers under time and cost pressures to deliver new, competitive networking solutions,” said Kiyoyasu Oishi, CEO and president of IP Infusion. “With the ZebOS-XP platform, our customers can conquer the significant challenges of exponentially increasing amounts of data, growing complexity, and new operating models such as full virtualization, public and private clouds, with a solution that delivers continuous, predictable, and highly resilient operations for even the most demanding network environment.”
Modular Operating System for Data Center Switching Solutions
To help simplify network operation deployment in data centers, IP Infusion brings together comprehensive data center protocol support, hybrid SDN feature support, modularity and carrier class data center-class management and high availability features, along with comprehensive services and support, to help OEMS rapidly implement an end-to-end, high-speed line-rate Gigabit Ethernet top-of-rack (ToR) switching solutions.
The IP Infusion ZebOS-XP is a data center-class network operating system built with modularity, resiliency, and serviceability at its foundation. Its modular software design provides robust software, fault tolerance, increased scalability, and increased network availability.
