Competitive proxy-based architecture SonicWall stream-based architecture Extensible architecture for extreme connections on any core in the system, scalability and performance providing ultimate scalability and the ability to deal with traffic spikes. This The RFDPI engine is purposely designed approach delivers extremely high new with a keen focus on providing security session establishment rates (new conn/. scanning at a high level of performance, sec) while deep packet inspection is to match both the inherently parallel enabled a key metric that is often a and ever growing nature of network bottleneck for data center deployments.

When combined with multi-core processor systems, this parallelism- centric software architecture scales up perfectly to address the demands of deep packet inspection (DPI) at high traffic loads. The SuperMassive platform relies on processors that, unlike x86, are optimized for packet, crypto and network processing while retaining flexibility and programmability in the field a weak SM interconnect 12 x 1 GbE SFP. point for ASICs systems. This flexibility is essential when new code and behavior updates are necessary to protect against new 4 x 10 GbE SFP+. attacks that require updated and more sophisticated detection techniques.
