Silicom unveils server to appliance converter

To configure servers as hardware appliances

By CBR Staff Writer

Silicom has unveiled a new server to appliance converter SETAC, for providers of appliance-based network systems.

The company said that the use of SETAC allows servers to be configured as hardware appliances. This creates a network appliance that combines server-grade reliability, front-end access, field-replaceable architecture and a stable environment.

The company said that the network appliance providers used a configuration which assured server-grade reliability and a stable technology environment but sacrificed flexibility; or used a specific, appliance-oriented hardware systems which allowed for flexibility and field-re-configurability, but not server-grade reliability and stable technology.

The new SETAC concept is created to eliminate the dilemma currently faced by network appliance providers in designing their network appliances, the company claims.

The SETAC product line includes SETAC converters comprised of PCI-Express G2 adapter, cables and the backplane that are used to interface with its front loading I/O Express Modules. The SETAC products leverages a standard server’s configuration and are installed via a simple procedure which facilitates the placing of Silicom’s I/O Express Modules into the server’s “hot-swap” hard drive slots.

Shaike Orbach, president and CEO of Silicom, said: “We developed the concept for this patent-pending idea together with some of our customers in the network appliance industry. Working closely with them, we have built a unique product that is a great solution for their own needs – and therefore, we believe, for the rest of our customers in this industry (a base of over 50 customers), as well as for new customers in additional market segments.”
