SP Industrial Brings Hardware-Based Solutions to Software-Defined Networking

Introduction

Software-Defined Networking, commonly abbreviated as SDN, has become a hot topic in the networking field. With its architectural design geared towards making networks more flexible and easier to manage, it is generally regarded to become the evolutionary direction for future networks. As such, SP Industrial is optimistic about the future growth of this market and is positioning itself to support its rising demand.

In order to meet the demand for rapid processing of massive quantities of data, SDN service providers must rely on high-performance CPUs, high-speed computing power, and durable storage. With nearly 20 years of experience in the storage industry, SP Industrial can play a key role in the SDN field to provide comprehensive hardware-based solutions to meet the various needs derived from this relatively new network development trend.

About Software-Defined Networking

SDN is not a specific technology, but rather a network architecture concept; the main reason for its attention and widening application is that cloud computing, big data, and other emerging business applications are becoming more and more commonly used, and traditional networks cannot keep up with this ever-changing demand. As a result, SDN was born in response to changes in network traffic and services.

In traditional networks, packet transfer behavior is independently controlled, with specific processing capabilities and configuration methods, but this control is decentralized. SDN changes the way traditional networks control data flow. The control surface of each device is placed on an external server and all devices on the transfer path are managed centrally through unified commands from this server; this eliminates a large number of manual configuration processes, which consequently improves efficiency.

In terms of application, both Facebook and Google have been using SDN in their data centers, and the popular streaming platforms, such as Netflix and Disney+, also use SDN to control their network traffic and manage massive amounts of data.

Durable High-Performance SSDs

SP Industrial provides durable high-performance SSDs that are ideal for SDN requirements. Their large capacity and high speed, coupled with extreme durability and stability characteristics, not only ensure enough storage space for massive amounts of data, but also ensure that this data can be collected and stored quickly. For instance, our new U.2 SSU3F0R&P Series provides Drive Writes Per Day greater than 1 (DWPD > 1), enough to meet the requirements of substantially large and speedy influx of information such as the ones resulting from SDNs.

In addition, the variable sizes of the packets and the high frequency through which they traverse the data plane in SDNs results in variable latencies and throughput. Our U.2 SSU3F0R&P Series bears negligible latency levels and sustained write performance, making them more than adequate to process large volumes of information at high speed.

Superior Quality DRAM for Reliable Performance

DRAM products are an indispensable part of SDN and SP Industrial provides these components with the highest level of detail and quality. Our DDR4 ECC RDIMM (Registered DIMM) is equipped with ECC error correction to ensure system stability; this is critical for data processing in computing centers.

Our DDR4 memory module product line is ready to be equipped with industrial-grade anti-sulfur chip resistors and arrays to withstand ISA standard 71.04 G2 severity levels that can occur in the certain environments in which SDNs are exposed.

Closing Thoughts

The network field continues to change and evolve in order to better serve increasing traffic demands. SP Industrial will continue to monitor these developments to provide the most suitable solutions. We are committed to offering a complete product line with current, relevant technology and valuable services to completely satisfy our customers’ needs for durable storage solutions.
