Netris SoftGate

While network switches provide network connectivity between compute hosts, servers, and storage devices, your private cloud network requires gateway services for connectivity with the Internet or other networks.

In legacy infrastructure environments, gateway services are provided using border routers + firewalls + load balancers + VPN gateways.

Modern open-source software accelerated with DPDK and SmartNIC technologies can provide the necessary gateway functionality for your private cloud.

Netris SoftGate is automatic configuration software and reference software architecture for enabling border routing, Layer-4 Load Balancing, Network Address Translation (NAT), and site-to-site VPN services utilizing a regular x86 server with a SmartNIC.

With Netris SoftGate, you don’t need to worry about integrating various network devices; you just use a couple of high-performance servers to achieve your network gateway services through immediate automatic configuration.
