ZebOS-XP Platform Offers Enhanced High Availability, Infrastructure,
and Optimization to Accelerate Transition to SDN
New network infrastructure requirements are placing greater demands on software-defined networking, data center virtualization, cloud computing, high performance computing, data warehousing, and disaster recovering strategies. The ZebOS-XP platform infrastructure was created from the ground up to address these high demands of scale and performance in mission critical mobile backhaul, carrier transport, and data center networks.
With its roots in the original ZebOS network operating system, ZebOS-XP 1.0 continues to be based on split control plane design and supports all hardware and software supported in existing ZebOS software release versions 7.10.x or earlier.
In performance and scalability tests which compared the ZebOS-XP control plane platform with the existing ZebOS control plane platform, the ZebOS-XP has 2 to 4+ times the scaling advantage when subjected to rapid increases in IP sessions and total bandwidth requirements. When compared to current shipping versions of ZebOS, ZebOS-XP has up to 8X ECMP route scaling for Layer 3 unicast routing protocols, and significantly improved convergence time for Layer 2 Switching and Layer 3 unicast routing. The full performance report is available on the IP Infusion website.
The ZebOS-XP platform provides significant performance improvements over the previous ZebOS generation, including:
