NetLogicから、新しい SAN/NAS用コントローラのプレスリリースです:

"NetLogic Microsystems Expands Industry-Leading XLP Multi-Core Processor
 into Network Storage Market"

 Flagship XLP multi-core processor family leverages breakthrough
 architecture with quad-issue, quad-threaded, out-of-order execution
 and storage hardware acceleration to deliver the highest performance
 for next-generation data center/enterprise/SMB SAN and NAS systems
 July 25, 2011

  "... today announced the availability of the XLP316T multi-core
   processor, which is optimized to deliver unparalleled performance
   and intelligence for the rapidly growing storage-area networking
   (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) markets in data center,
   enterprise and small-to-midsize business (SMB) networks."
  "The best-in-class XLP316T processor integrates 16 high-performance
   NXCPUs featuring a highly differentiated quad-issue, quad-threaded,
   superscalar out-of-order processor architecture capable of operating
   at up to 2.0 GHz to provide the industry's highest multi-core
   processing performance.  In addition, the XLP316T processor,
   manufactured in TSMC's advanced 40nm process technology, offers unique
   features, such as RAID 5 and RAID 6 hardware acceleration, storage
   de-duplication acceleration, high-speed Serial ATA (SATA) interfaces
   and large on-chip L3 cache, making it ideally suited to storage systems
   that require the highest performance, functionality and lowest power."
  "To complement the 16 NXCPUs, the XLP316T multi-core processor offers
   fully-autonomous processing engines that provide independent and
   complete offload of certain network and storage functions from the
   NXCPUs, including:

   *)64 Gbps RAID-5/RAID-6 hardware acceleration
   *)Storage De-Duplication hardware acceleration
   *)10 Gbps Security Acceleration Engines supporting encryption,
     decryption and authentication protocols for networking, wireless
     and storage applications
   *)20 Gbps Network Acceleration Engines for ingress/egress packet
     parsing and management
   *)Packet Ordering Engines supporting 32k flows
   *)TCP Segmentation Offload Engines
   *)IEEE 1588 Hardware Time Stamping hardware acceleration"
  "The XLP316T processor also integrates a wide range of high-speed
   interfaces, including:

   *)Serial ATA (4x)
   *)PCI-ExpressR Gen2 (2x8 or 4x4 or 1x4 configurations)
   *)10 Gigabit Ethernet XAUI (2 ports)
   *)Gigabit Ethernet SGMII (8 lanes)
   *)USB2.0 (4x)"
