Network Function Virtualization requires relying on high-performance commodity hardware, in order to process the huge amounts of traffic that traverse today’s networks.

Whitestack Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) is designed to deliver high performance, by leveraging industry-wide innovations available in commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware.

Server Fronts

Whitestack NFVI consists of a hyper-convergent family of servers, allowing the achievement of greater computer and storage density, leveraging the performance and power-efficiency of the latest Intel Scalable Processors.

  • By relying on novel standardized hardware features, like SR-IOV and IOMMU, we contribute to create a vendor-agnostic NFVI, with no vendor lock-in, that takes advantage of mature technologies, broadly available from many hardware vendors
  • By implementing mature Open Source components, like Linux, KVM, DPDK and OpenvSwitch, our customers align with the industry trend while moving away from proprietary solutions.
  • By adopting commercial-of-the-shelf (COTS) hardware, our customers not only reduce CAPEX, but can achieve Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) at industry minimums.

Key Attributes

  • COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) servers, with standardized hardware elements (no proprietary components)
  • Open-source Hypervisor (KVM) the most broadly deployed hypervisor, and the preferred option for OpenStack.
  • Featuring industry supported innovations (KVM, OVS, DPDK, SR-IOV, etc.)
  • No Vendor Lock-In, by integrating open-source hypervisor, COTS servers and whitebox switches.
  • Fully aligned with industry trends, with extensive ecosystem around those technologies.

High-density multi-node

Our 4-node chassis can allocate 4 high-performance servers in only 2 RU, achieving the highest server density in the market.

  • Each node is a dual-socket system, that leverages the Intel® C624 Chipset, supporting the newest Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors, 1.5TB of RAM, and expansion capabilities to accommodate multiple 10/25Gbps interfaces.

  • AC or DC power is available, making this units the right solution for data centers or Telco sites.

  • A highly serviceable hardware platform, that largely surpasses the densities from traditional IT infrastructure vendors.

Hyper-converged

With up to 12 2.5” HDD or SSD disks + internal NVMe modules, a high storage density can be integrated directly in each node, at bus speeds, not requiring any external SAN or NAS solutions.

Huge CPU / Massive memory

By integrating the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors, we achieve the highest compute density in the industry!

The Gold or Platinum processors, can deliver up to 28 cores per socket, and address up to 1.5TB of high-performance 2666Mhz DRAM, what makes it the perfect compute node for Network Function Virtualization.

Extremely fast storage

SSD is not always sufficient! Our servers leverage Intel® Optane™, the fastest non-volatile memory in the market (with performance similar to DRAM), to implement the fastest solid-state storage in the word!!

By using PCI-express buses, it is possible to achieve multi-gigabyte storage throughput (500.000 IOPS), excelling what SATA or SAS can deliver today.

Optane™ allows Telcos to reduce latency in mission-critical applications, maximizing VNFs performance, without compromising compatibility.

Server Back

Open networking

Integrating high-performance, open networking switches, that leverage the Broadcom Trident II chipsets (48x10G + 6x100G) or Broadcom Tomahawk chipsets (32 x 100G), we provide open networking Spine & Leafs, at the highest bandwidth available.
