Tilera's TILE-Gx Delivers 25 Gbps Suricata IPS/IDS Solution: Industry's Highest Performance

Demonstrating 25 Gbps on the TILExtreme-Gx 1U Platform at Interop 2012

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/12 -- Interop, (Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Suite Palm F) -- Tilera® Corporation, the leader in 64-bit manycore general purpose processors, today announced it has achieved unparalleled Suricata performance, surpassing 25 Gbps throughput on the TILE-Gx™ processor. Suricata is an open source Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDS/IPS) developed by the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF) to secure networks against next generation security threats.

This best-in-class performance was achieved on Tilera's TILExtreme-Gx™ high density platform that packs 144 cores with 4 TILE-Gx36 processors in a compact 1U rack mountable device. The standard TILExtreme-Gx platform provides up to 160 Gbps of Ethernet I/O and is ideal for a variety of compute and I/O intensive tasks such as Network Security (IDS/IPS, DPI, DLP), Network Monitoring, Data Forensics and Big Data processing.

The multi-threaded Suricata application (version 1.3 beta) was implemented using Tilera's Multicore Development Environment (MDE) 4.0, a full-featured run time Linux environment for TILE-Gx processors.

"The performance made possible by the TILE-Gx platform is impressive and necessary for organizations and carriers to stay ahead of rapidly evolving security threats. We are thrilled with Tilera's support of Suricata and the amazing performance achieved by the TILE-Gx processor," stated Victor Julien, OISF's lead developer.

"IDS systems have to evolve and we believe Suricata is leading that change. The enhanced capabilities powered by the major breakthroughs Tilera has made gives Suricata a natural partner and platform to really move forward," added Matt Jonkman, president, OISF.

"This is another example of the ground breaking capabilities TILE-Gx processors are delivering today. We are the world's first company to achieve 25 Gbps performance in a 1U form factor when implementing the standard Suricata Emerging Threats rule set," said Devesh Garg, founder, president, and CEO of Tilera. "We are very excited to see new classes of products unleashed in the market driven by the performance, power efficiency, software compatibility and overall density of our TILE-Gx processor family," added Garg.

The Suricata solution is available on all of the TILE-Gx platforms including the TILEmpower-Gx 1U standalone appliance and the TILEncore-Gx PCIe card, both supporting up to 40 Gbps Ethernet I/O.

Tilera will demonstrate its Suricata solution at Interop in Las Vegas, May 8-10, 2012, in the Palm F Suite at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
