    Tahoe 8828

    Marvell® OCTEON® TX2 Based 1U Networking Appliance

    ARM Appliances


    The Tahoe 8828 “rounds out” the Interface Masters family of ARM® and MIPS based network appliances. It is an artificial and machine learning powerhouse designed for enterprise applications. The primary CPU is the powerful Marvell™ OCTEON® TX2 ARM64® CN9670 multicore processor (18-24 cores at 2.4GHz). The appliance supports a range of high-performance offload processing upgrade options, and a dedicated single-bay I/O module.

    Like the Tahoe 8830, the optional high-performance offload processing upgrades include an Intel® XEON®-D class processing module with Interface Master’s proprietary DataSlammer™ technology. Additionally, there is another option which allows just about any PCI x16 lane network card–including advanced NVIDIA® GPUs. Both options are thermally validated using industry leading Ansys® thermal simulation.

    Interface Masters provides support for the Marvell SDK on multiple Linux distributions. Additional software and firmware enables rapid application development.

    Target applications include network security appliance and offloads, Edge Routers, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Software Defined Networks (SDN), SSL/IPsec offload processing, 3G / 4G / 5G / LTE gateways, Unified Threat Management (UTM), Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), WAN optimization, Application Delivery Controllers (ADC), wireless controllers and load balancers.
