A new global study from LogicMonitor examines how IT departments are evolving in a time of crisis to maintain business continuity and best meet the needs of their customers. LogicMonitor, the leading cloud-based provider of IT infrastructure monitoring, intelligence and observability, today released its Evolution of IT report, which is the result of a survey of 500 IT decision makers from across North America, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand during the COVID-19 pandemic. The report reveals a number of important trends, and identifies several IT challenges faced as countries and enterprises shut down physical offices and move operations online.

Kentik®, provider of the leading network intelligence platform trusted by digital enterprises and service providers, today announced Hybrid Map. With Hybrid Map from Kentik, NetOps teams gain an immediate and single, unified view to understand topology state, traffic flows, network performance and device health status within and between multi-cloud, on-prem and internet infrastructures. This new level of interactivity within the Kentik Network Intelligence Platform enables NetOps teams to get immediate insights into hybrid networks, dive deep and quickly resolve problems. Breaking the boundaries of the traditional data center often means broken network monitoring. For network professionals running hybrid infrastructures, Kentik offers the only solution that paints a complete picture of this new reality from container to cloud," said Christoph Pfister, chief product officer of Kentik. "Organizations struggle to visualize their hybrid environments, especially when they incorporate container networking overlays. With the new Hybrid Map from Kentik, network teams can finally have that picture on their screen, with complete visibility into real-time and historical health, performance, and traffic data and instantly.
Achronix | October 28, 2021
Achronix Semiconductor Corporation, a leader in high-performance FPGAs and embedded FPGA IP, and MoSys, Inc., a provider of both semiconductor and IP solutions focused on accelerating data intelligence to enable fast, intelligent data access today announced a collaboration to deliver a new class of high-speed, programmable, FPGA-based infrastructure solutions tailored for the 5G wireless core and edge, data center, and broadband wired networks.
The solution will combine Achronix Speedster7t FPGAs with the MoSys Stellar Packet Classification Platform IP to deliver key building blocks needed for high-speed routing, compute and security solutions.
MoSys Stellar Packet Classification IP utilizes the Achronix Speedster7t FPGA's high-speed GDDR6 memory interfaces to add support for:
100's of millions of look-ups per second
Millions of packet classification rules: both access control lists (ACL) and longest prefix match (LPM)
Very complex, 10+ tuple look-ups at up to 480b TCAM-style rules
The MoSys Blazar Acceleration Engine ICs can also be easily coupled to Speedster7t FPGAs to add:
In-memory computing capabilities using 25G SerDes lanes
Up to 1Gb of high-speed memory to complement and expand the on-board FPGA SRAM by up to five times.
MoSys IP, together with Achronix FPGAs, can offload both high-end servers and multi-terabit switch designs to extend functionality and capacity as well as reduce latency for critical look-up functions, all at much lower power when compared to CPU-only based solutions. Combining Achronix Speedster7t FPGAs and MoSys Stellar Packet Classification IP will improve the performance of a wide range of applications and services for cloud data center operators, 5G mobile telecom service providers, government, and research organizations.
With the first Speedster7t device now shipping, the 7t1500 provides:
692k look-up-tables (LUTs)
195 Mb of memory
Four 400G Ethernet interfaces
Two PCIe Gen5 interfaces
Eight GDDR6 memory interfaces
High-bandwidth 2D network on chip (2D NoC)
The Speedster7t family are the only FPGAs with a 2D NoC which helps to support high-speed data transfers from external data interfaces to the FPGA's internal logic, delivering a total bandwidth of greater than 20 Tbps.
Steve Mensor, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, at Achronix Semiconductor, said, "Achronix is excited to partner with MoSys, Inc. to provide high-performance routing and security solutions to our global customer base. MoSys's industry-leading packet classification solutions combined with our Speedster7t FPGAs create the ideal platform for the most demanding data acceleration applications."
"Achronix Speedster7t FPGAs are ideally suited to hosting our very high-speed look-up IP. Now, 5G UPF core and edge routing solutions using LPM look-ups and security solutions, including network firewalls and anti-DDoS applications can use complex access control lists to process traffic at unprecedented performance levels,The Achronix architecture is truly optimized for on- and off-chip networking and, by combining their FPGAs with our Stellar Packet Classification IP and software, will bring a compelling solution to our shared customers in the networking and communications markets."
Dan Lewis, CEO of MoSys, Inc.
