Exar Corporation has expanded its portfolio of compression and security solutions with the launch of the XR9200 Coprocessor family. The XR9200 looks to address requirements in high performance applications for the data analytics, storage, and cloud security markets, which include Data Warehouses, Hadoop Clusters, Storage Arrays, Application Delivery Controllers (ADC), WAN Optimization Appliances, and Security Gateways.
These new coprocessors provide leading-edge compression to remove or minimise costly I/O bottlenecks and enable maximum system throughput with minimum latency, while optimising storage efficiency. In addition the XR9200’s hardware-accelerated encryption and public key processing enables the secure infrastructure needed to support high transaction throughput and packet-per-second rate required by enterprise, cloud and web-based applications. The new family of coprocessors offloads computationally intensive compression and security algorithms from a host CPU and matches the performance of hundreds of enterprise class x86 CPU cores at much lower power and cost.
“Exar continues its long history of delivering innovative compression and encryption solutions for enterprise class applications in the data center with the XR9200 family of coprocessors,” said Dr. Jiebing Wang, Vice President of Data Management, Exar. “The leading-edge compression and security engines combine best-in-class throughput and compression ratios. The XR9200 enables unmatched system performance for big data infrastructure and data analytics, as well as storage arrays and networking appliances.”
