PCI Express (PCIe) was introduced into the server environments as a serial communications interface standard and is now the protocol of choice in the server interconnect arena and hot-swappable PCIe, as the name suggests, allows an endpoint to be inserted or removed from a PCIe system without special consideration, fulfilling the need for replacing/adding components on the fly and therefore delivering the crucial server reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) for businesses of all sizes.
Lanner’s NCA-5710, a hyperscale network security solution that delivers exceptional performance for DPI and IPS is equipped with hot-swappable PCIe functionality and makes available the following competitive advantages:
- Boards or enclosures insertion/extraction without system operations slowdown or interruption.
- Faulty device repair or replacement without having to schedule server downtime.
