IBASE: network appliance based on AMD EPYC
IBASE Technology releases a network appliance based on the AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 Series processors. The high-performance FWA8800 1U rackmount appliance houses the IBASE MBN806 motherboard that is powered by a 1.5GHz (Max. Boost 3.1GHz), eight-core EPYC Embedded 3201 SoC, supporting up to 64GB UDIMM or 128GB RDIMM DDR memory with a frequency of 2667MHz in ECC or non ECC version. The FWA8800 is optimized for throughput performance and high-density deployments in applications such as network security, VPN/SDN/NFV/SD-WAN, and data management and analytics.
The highly scalable FWA8800 utilizes the Intel I210-AT Ethernet controller and two NIC modules to accommodate two IBN cards for up to 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Customers may opt to have four NIC modules in the system for a maximum of 32 GbE ports. Expansion and connectivity available come in the form of a PCIe(x8) slot for standard PCIe cards, 2x SATA III ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports and an M.2 slot with PCIe(x4) and SATA signals. Alongside the Ethernet ports is an LCM with 4-key keypad. A VGA output can be added through an optional IPMI module.
