cFlow: A High-Performance Cluster Front-End

cPacket Networks has just announced their new product cFlow, a high-performance load-balancer that implements the traffic distribution scheme we developed for the Bro Cluster. As our initial research prototypes were not suitable for a reliable production deployment, the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab collaborated with the cPacket team to develop this appliance, which delivers a load balancing front-end at full 10 GigE line rate. cPacket did a great job with this, and the cFlow will become a key component of the Lab's new, high-performance intrusion detection infrastructure. See the full press release for more information.
