The Agilio OVS Firewall Software is designed to enable zero-trust stateful security in data centers using OpenStack-based automation. Agilio OVS Firewall Software, combined with Agilio SmartNICs, enable zero-trust stateful security while significantly improving server-based networking performance. Agilio OVS Firewall Software restores valuable CPU cores by offloading OVS and connection tracking (Conntrack) to Netronome's SmartNICs.
The solution targets cloud networking in the form of public and private clouds, Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas), and virtual private clouds (VPCs) as well as Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) in service provider networks where it is common to have a large number of network overlays and/or security policies that are enforced on the compute node.
Use cases for Agilio include compute nodes for IaaS or SaaS, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), and non-virtualized service nodes, among others. In these use cases, it is common to have a large number of network overlays and/or security policies that are enforced on the server - potentially several thousands of policies per VM. Agilio provides the ability to support very high flow and policy capacities without degradation in performance.
