ExaNIC X4

SUB-MICRO LATENCY* QUAD-PORT 10GBE NETWORK INTERFACE CARD

Exablaze's ExaNIC is an ultra low latency network interface card which delivers the lowest latency in the industry: under a microsecond application to application for small Ethernet frames (using the native API) and approximately 1.1 microseconds for small TCP and UDP payloads (using the transparent socket acceleration library).

The ExaNIC X4 also has built in port mirroring and bridging functionality, both useful features that are not available in other NICs. Additionally, with hardware–based time stamping of every packet to 6 nanoseconds resolution, users can rethink their approach to measurement and latency management.

The ExaNIC is also available in a two-port half-height version (ExaNIC X2); both cards share the same internal architecture and performance.
