To further enhance data center security, Hillstone Networks has launched its X8180 firewall appliance. This new data center security solution is aimed at bringing more performance and greater energy efficiency while achieving high reliability, scalability and adaptability in a small form factor.
Hillstone Networks’ X8180 firewall platform would reduce CAPEX and OPEX without sacrificing on “enterprise-grade” features. 3RU would deliver high throughput per RU and low power consumption per Gbps of throughput, with a power-to-throughput ratio of 2.9 at under 1000W maximum power consumption.
The firewall appliance is aimed at customers including service providers, large enterprises, governments, and carrier networks. Hillstone’s X8180 network security solution is fully distributed and supports many virtual systems with a full complement of features to protect data center networks.
“Security continues to be the #1 concern of the enterprise. It’s mission critical to secure the data center, but equally important to deliver to today’s customer reality,” said Tim Liu, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and co-founder of Hillstone Networks. “We listened to our customers and proudly introduce the X8180, a robust platform without the robust price tag.”
Highlights of Hillstone’s X8180 firewall appliance would include:
- Small Size with High Performance – 450 Gbps throughput; 130 million concurrent sessions; 2.5 million new sessions/s
- Extensible and Adaptable – 10/100GE interfaces with support for 25/40GE; up to 1000 virtual systems; dual-stack, tunnel, DNS64/NAT64, etc.
- Intelligence – Elastic architecture supports SDS; Botnet C&C prevention; “seamless” connection to cloud platforms
