6WIND Launches Turbo Router and Turbo IPsec Software Appliances

6WIND introduced Turbo Router and Turbo IPsec software appliances for standard x86 servers within bare metal and virtual machine (VM) environments. The company claims that its Turbo Router can deliver up to twice the performance at ¼ the price, compared to competing software routers. Compared to hardware-based IPsec Gateways, 6WIND’s Turbo IPsec can save 80% of the cost per gigabit of IPsec throughput.



The new Speed Series Turbo Appliances, which are based on the company's 6WINDGate packet processing software, are designed for service providers, cloud and content providers and enterprises. The new appliances are designed for linear performance scalability with the number of cores deployed and offer a full-featured data plane networking with fast path protocols.

Some highlights

6WIND’s Speed Series Turbo Router combines dynamic routing and stateful firewall features in a high performance software appliance:
  • Data Plane: VLAN, LAG, Routing (including VRF), IPinIP, GRE, Firewall & NAT, etc.
  • Control Plane: VRRP, Routing (RIP, OSPF, BGP), etc.
  • Services: DHCP, SNMP, etc.
  • IPv4 and IPv6
  • Performance: Over 200 Gbps IP Forwarding throughput on a Quad Intel Xeon Processor E7-4800 v2 Series system @ 2.8 GHz leveraging only 22 cores out of 40

6WIND’s Speed Series Turbo IPsec, the industry’s first software-based IPsec Gateway appliance, combines IPsec, dynamic routing and stateful firewall features:
  • Data Plane: VLAN, LAG, Routing (including VRF), IPinIP, GRE, Firewall & NAT, etc.
  • Control Plane: IKE, VRRP, Routing (RIP, OSPF, BGP), etc.
  • Services: DHCP, SNMP, and more
  • IPv4 and IPv6
  • Performance: Over 100 Gbps IPsec throughput while performing both crypto and authentication on all packets without external crypto technology on a Quad Intel® Xeon Processor E7-4800 v2 Series system @ 2.8 GHz leveraging only 22 cores

6WIND also noted that its new Turbo Appliances can be integrated with 6WIND’s Virtual Accelerator for accelerated virtual switching and networking infrastructure, and third party virtual functions, in the transition to Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and virtual networking environments. For example, by combining 6WIND’s Virtual Accelerator and Turbo Router, customers can achieve over 5x performance of a standard Linux router VM running on top of Open vSwitch, while saving 75% of the system’s processor resources to run additional VMs.

“Our new Speed Series Turbo Router and Turbo IPsec appliances leverage our industry-proven 6WINDGate technology to provide the packet processing performance of hardware networking solutions in software,” said Eric Carm├Ęs, CEO and Founder of 6WIND. “Our Turbo Appliances deliver an impressive price/performance advantage over competing software appliances and traditional purpose-built hardware appliances.”
