Software Alternatives For High Performance Virtual Networking

The 6WIND Speed Certification Program is designed to help identify technologies essential for NFV implementations. Leading vendors of networking products work with 6WIND testing labs to see what sort of performance gains their virtual network applications will realize when configured with our Virtual Accelerator accelerated infrastructure.

Certified products and applications include:

vSBC: 3x Calico: 3x BIG-IP VE: 5x VSR: 4x
radware
IxVM: 4x LoadMaster: 2x Alteon VA: 20 Gbps
