Endace has announced the release of a new 4-port packet capture card for 1GbE, 10GbE and 40GbE environments at a price to suit cost-conscious OEMs, system builders and high-frequency traders.
The new four-port DAG10X4-S provides lossless packet capture on four 1GbE/10GbE links or one 40GbE link. This flexibility makes the DAG10X4-S ideal for use in packet capture and analysis solutions in mixed environments. With four monitoring ports, and the ability to stack multiple cards in a host server, the DAG10X4-S enables system builders to create compact systems, suitable for space-constrained datacenters like the co-location facilities used by financial traders.
The DAG10X4-S provides on-board processing for a host of enterprise and encapsulation protocols, such as MPLS and VLAN. Its fan-less cooling design helps ensure the long-term ultra-reliability that DAG cards have long been renowned for and which is of key importance to customers.
Endace CEO, Stuart Wilson, says “We designed the DAG10X4-S to deliver ultimate reliability and accuracy in a cost-effective package for OEMs, and customers - such as Financial Traders - who build their own systems. It has all the processing features they need without the features of the more expensive 10X4-P model which is designed for telecommunications companies. The DAG10X4-S delivers flexibility and performance at a market-leading price, and we expect it to be very popular.”
Coinciding with the launch of the DAG10X4-S, Endace announced the general release of Version 5.6 of its DAG software. Version 5.6 introduces 40 Gbps receive and transmit for both the new DAG10X4-S and the existing DAG10X4-P cards. It is available to customers as a free upgrade, downloadable at Endace’s new Support Portal at support.endace.com.
