Algo-Logic is partnered with Juniper Networks to support their QFX5100-24Q-AA Application Acceleration Switch, a compact, 1U, high-density 40GbE data center switch. The base unit features 24 quad small form-factor pluggable plus transceiver (QSFP+) ports. With the addition of an optional QFX-PFA-4Q Packet Flow Accelerator (PFA) expansion module, the switch can morph into an intelligent application acceleration system.

To support application processing on the QFX5100-24Q-AA, the CPU subsystem is enhanced with a quad-core Intel CPU with 32 GB DRAM and additional storage capacity through an onboard 128 GB solid-state drive (SSD). The enhanced CPU provides dedicated resources for applications running in the guest virtual machines (VMs) on the switch and also enables greater flexibility for custom programming of the PFA module.

The QFX-PFA-4Q PFA is a four-port 40GbE expansion module for QFX5100-24Q-AA featuring an Altera Stratix V 320 Gbps FPGA with 1 million logical elements. The PFA supports 160 Gbps high-speed internal connectivity to the Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE) on the QFX5100-24Q-AA platform, while four front-panel QSFP+ ports enable direct external connections to the PFA subsystem.
