Myricom SIA SmartNIC

Server Offload for Processor-Taxing Applications

Accelerate encryption, packet handling, and classification

The Myricom Secure Intelligent Adapter, in 10Gb or 25Gb, is more than just a SmartNIC card, it can improve server and application performance by offloading a variety of server-intensive functions, such as encryption or microsegmentation. Alternatively, it can run native applications, including third-party x86-developed applications, ported to run on its ARM cores. The Myricom SIA powerful processing power can easily handle any of the ARIA SDS applications that monitor and classify all network traffic, while creating network analytics, enhance network security, perform key management, and classification, and offload encryption functions.
