Mansfield, MA, United States, March 23, 2015 – Accolade Technology, the technology leader in advanced application acceleration NICs/Adapters for Network Monitoring, Cyber Security, Mobile Carrier QOS, Test and Measurement, today announced that it has become a member of the Network Intelligence Alliance (NI Alliance). The NI Alliance is an industry organization created for collaboration among vendors of products and solutions based on network intelligence. Participation in the NI Alliance will help Accolade Technology build and market innovative solutions for OEM Customers and Systems Integrators seeking to leverage Accolade’s Nx10G and 100GigE market leading Application Acceleration NICs.
The NI Alliance is a forum for collaboration among technology providers whose solutions optimize traffic, ensure quality of service, secure data in transit, and more. Through the NI Alliance, members can better serve their customers both for traditional architectures and for emerging solutions leveraging Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
Accolade Technology’s ANIC series of Intelligent NICs are optimized to perform the most advanced Application Acceleration functions which include offloading multi-core host CPUs through lossless packet capture at 100 GigE, packet filtering, load balancing, packet slicing, de-tunneling and much more.
“Accolade is honored to become a part of the NI Alliance and looks forward to contributing to the Network Intelligence Eco-System through its Application Acceleration NICs”, said Robbie Dhillon, C.E.O., Accolade Technology. “The NI Alliance provides the ideal environment for Accolade to collaborate with market leaders in the growing and evolving SDN and NFV space.”
“Accolade Technology is a valuable addition to the NI Alliance and we welcome their participation,” said Erik Larsson, Chairman of the NI Alliance. “By joining the NI Alliance, Accolade Technology increases its commitment to customers with stronger solutions leveraging Network Intelligence.”
Establishment of the NI Alliance was initiated by Qosmos, the market leader in network intelligence technology for use in physical, virtualized and in SDN architectures. Through the NI Alliance, Qosmos expands its collaborative approach to help vendors design and deliver advanced solutions with embedded Network Intelligence technology and real-time application awareness.
