ÖRNSKÖLDSVIK. 2015-12-18, by Nikolas Georgii

Clavister (NASDAQ: CLAV), a leader in high-performance network security, has released the latest version of its cOS Stream, its multi-core security operating system designed for telecom providers, enhancing performance by 500% compared to previous releases.

Incorporating Intel’s Quick Assist acceleration technology, cOS Stream achieves market leading VPN performance on both physical and virtual appliances, achieving up to 40 Gbps IPSec performance. cOS Stream now outperforms competitors’ offerings in some cases by as much as 1000%[i], with key features including:

  • Market leading VPN Performance – 40 Gbps IPSec performance on a single virtual appliance running on low-cost and COTS hardware.
  • NFV/SDN Capabilities – fully virtualized software with support for the latest innovations from Intel, including SR-IOV, Quick Assist and more.
  • Multi-platform ready – cOS Stream runs on both purpose-built hardware and leading hypervisor platforms such as KVM and VMWare.

"Achieving 40 Gbps of IPSec throughput on a virtual appliance running on top of relatively low-cost hardware is a major milestone and will give us and our partners a unique position in the Telecom/LTE market,” said John Vestberg, CTO at Clavister, “We've made great strides forward in serving the telecom sector over the course of 2015 and this new version of our operating system provides us with an enhanced offering for the telco market, putting us in a strong position to successively grab a solid market-share.”

Earlier this year Clavister signed a software license agreement with a leading Telco Equipment Vendor to deliver software-based security solutions. Agreements have also been signed with the Military (Telecom) Industry and Blue-light systems based on the same platform. The company also recently announced a collaboration with its partner Artesyn Embedded Technologies launching the Centellis® Security Edition platform. The platform utilises Clavister solutions to enable carriers to dramatically lower the cost of developing, deploying and running virtual and cloud-based security gateways on telecom networks.

Since 2013 the company has been a member of the Intel Network Builders program, a cross-industry initiative to make it easier for cloud providers and telcos to build, secure and manage Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) infrastructures, with lower capital and operating costs.

The latest version of Clavister cOS Stream is available from Clavister as of December 21, 2015.
