Lanner today introduced the N2S-IPU01, a smart NIC powered by Intel Atom® Processor P5742 (codenamed Phantom Lake) and is based on Lanner’s N2S form factor.

Smart NICs such as the N2S-IPU01 aim to offload, accelerate and secure datacenter infrastructure services so that CPUs and GPUs are more readily available for running and processing large volumes of workloads such as AI-intensive tasks.

In terms of I/O, the N2S-IPU01 comes with 1x console port, 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1 GbE RJ45 port and 1x 100GbE QSFP28 port (SKU A) or 4x 25GbE SFP28 ports (SKU B).

The N2S-IPU01 also features hardware acceleration for carrying out network security tasks such as encryption, decryption, compression, decompression and packet inspection, freeing up CPU for other tasks.

All in all, the N2S-IPU01 not only enables hardware-offloading for software-defined storage, networking and management workloads but also minimizes demands on CPUs, making available improved performance, superior security and reduced TCO for cloud computing platforms so that virtualized, containerized and bare-metal infrastructures can be built and operated with more efficiency and at larger scales.
