Technology Leadership in Enabling Advanced Host CPU Offload

Accolade’s line of ANIC (Advanced NIC) FPGA based 1-100GE PCIe adapters and ATLAS 1U platform enable Intelligent Host CPU Offload features such as 100% packet capture, flow classification, flow shunting, deduplication, packet filtering and more. Our customers are global leaders in network monitoring & cybersecurity applications as well as in the network test and measurement, telecom and video stream monitoring markets.

Accolade Sets the Standard in Host CPU Offload

Technology Leadership

Accolade is the technology leader in FPGA-based, host CPU offload SmartNICs. Accolade has consistently been on the leading edge of industry trends including introducing multiple generations of 100GE adapters, releasing innovative offload features such as flow classification and flow shunting, and producing the fully integrated 1U ATLAS-1000 platform.

Comprehensive, World Class Support

There are many vendors that provide “raw” FPGA-based adapters, leaving the customer to figure out what to do with the hardware. In contrast, Accolade provides not only the hardware, but also in-house developed intellectual property and customer-specific features. Accolade is a single technology partner that can provide hardware, leading edge intellectual property, and software integration resources to bring an entire solution to market in record time.

Time to Market

Many vendors believe they can build all needed functionality themselves and sometimes entirely in software. This may be true, but is building everything yourself the most optimal use of time and resources? Accolade has worked directly with many security and networking vendors over the years. Let Accolade show you how we can substantially cut your time to market – saving you not only time, but also making you more money!

The most Scalable, Comprehensive and Customizable Host CPU Offload Feature Sets

100% Packet Capture

At the core of all ANIC adapters is the FPGA based Advanced Packet Processor (APP) which features a high performance pipe-lined packet processing engine, a high performance DDR3 memory and PCIe DMA interface.

Packet Filtering

At the core of all ANIC adapters is the FPGA based Advanced Packet Processor (APP) which features a high performance pipe-lined packet processing engine, a high performance DDR3 memory and PCIe DMA interface.

Flow Classification

The APP hash-based classifier generates a 24 bit hash key using the Layer 3/4  five-tuple (IP source address, UDP/TCP source port, IP destination address, UDP/TCP destination port, protocol id).

Packet Merging

In applications where a single receive port is connected to an aggregation Tap, Mirror or SPAN port of a Switch, packets are time stamped in order of arrival, processed by the APP and forwarded to the Host CPU.

Flow Shunting

Flow shunting allows an application to programmatically turn packet transmission on or off—for a given flow, thereby reducing the amount of data it has to analyze, freeing up CPU resources for more pressing tasks.

Deduplication

Most network monitoring appliances receive a significant number of duplicate packets; sometimes as high as 50% of all traffic. ANIC adapters can discard all duplicate packets in hardware before they ever reach the host application, saving wasted processing cycles.
