Alexander: Thank you so much, sir
Thank you so much for your interest in Servergy! We did receive your
request and we are currently finalizing pricing and availability for
both the CTS-1000 and P-Cubed at this time.
Wow, that's great news!
However, i can answer your questions from your
P-cubed, if it has at least two Ethernet ports
The current plan for the P-Cubed is an single ethernet port.
A second Ethernet port
would make it great board for security /
I have two
plans with the machine: porting the Zorp proxy firewall
(developed by BalaBit) and see how it performs compared to x86.
Can you tell me more about your timeframes for porting, testing
(success criteria and plan) and evaluation?
Actually there is no timeframe. It is
not an official BalaBit plan, at
least not an official company goal. On the other hand many of my
colleagues support the idea and find it very interesting. Zorp is often
running now on huge x86 servers, and many of us think, that QorIQ would
do the same job at a fraction of the size or energy requirements. And a
successful PoC could turn it into a company project on the long run.
And as an openSUSE fan, I'd like to bring up
the openSUSE Power port
on it (which I used earlier on Genesi PowerPC machines).
We have created live-fs of our own port of SUSE, as well as other
applications/utilities for Linux like OpenStack and memcached. I
would be interested what other things you would want to
explore with our platform. We are definitely looking for more
software contributions compiled for our platform.
Personally I did Linux distro QA
for a couple of PowerPC machines for
about five years (I must admit, that I did boot my Pegasos2 this year
only once...). This included creating installers, reporting bugs, asking
for features to make life of distro users easier. I did it mostly for
openSUSE and Ubuntu, sometimes other distributions. My other interests
are different IDS softwares, like Bro, Suricata, etc.
