ANDOVER, Massachusetts: Napatech, the world's largest vendor of intelligent adapters for network monitoring and analysis last week announced that it had achieved 100 Gbps throughput on a Dell PowerEdge R720 rack server. This makes the PowerEdge R720 ideal for OEM vendors of network appliances who need to analyze up to 10 ports at speeds of 10 Gbps.


“As part of our testing of the latest Dell PowerEdge servers, we were excited to see that the PowerEdge R720 was capable of providing 100 Gbps of throughput, something we have not seen previously,” stated Henrik Brill Jensen, CEO Napatech. “This is a significant milestone and shows the tremendous power that is now available in standard servers.”

As an OEM provider, it is important that Napatech products can operate efficiently in a wide variety of standard servers. It is therefore common practice to test Napatech intelligent adapters in the latest available servers to ensure that there are no compatibility or performance issues. It was as part of this test process that Napatech verified the high throughput rate of Dell’s PowerEdge servers.

“We are excited by the performance that Napatech was able to achieve using a Dell PowerEdge R720 server and Napatech’s NT20E2 adapters,” said Ron Pugh, executive director and general manager, Dell OEM Solutions, Americas, Dell. “The latest generation of Dell PowerEdge servers were designed for optimal performance and this demonstration highlights the type of capabilities our OEM customers are able to bring to their end users by working with Dell and Napatech.”

The configuration of the test was:

Dell PowerEdge R720 with dual hex-core Intel Xeon E5-2600, 2.5 GHz processors

5 x Napatech NT20E2 dual port 10 Gbps low-profile adapters

With this test setup, 10 ports of 10 Gbps traffic was generated and captured using a packet capture application. The test was run over several hours without the loss of a single packet
