Cloud

Cloud computing, or on-demand computing, is a type of Internet-based computing that requires highly effective network bandwidth, multi-protocol support, and high-performance processing speed. Portwell designs and develops networking platforms to power the network infrastructure of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage and process data. Portwell’s cloud computing systems also have multi-port communication protocols providing connectivity for most client devices within a cloud computing infrastructure.


Portwell solutions for cloud computing application:

1U Server, 2U Server, Storage, Software-defined Storage, Switch, CAR-3070.

IoT/IoE

The Internet of Things (IoT) enables a network of physical objects—including devices, vehicles, buildings and many other items which are embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity—to collect and exchange data. IoT allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. It takes the vision and combined efforts of many ecosystems to enable IoT now and empower IoT in the future. As an active member of the Intel Internet of Things Solutions Alliance, Portwell has realized the critical role a network communication computing system plays and has wasted no time in developing outdoor gateways and communication appliances that are scalable, power efficient and with wide-temperature support.

SDN & NFV, CDN

In computer networking, software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) are complementary approaches, each offering a new way to design, deploy and manage the network and its services. Specifically, for content delivery network (CDN), with NFV’s focus on optimizing the network services themselves, it makes it very easy to host multiple virtual machines of virtualized CDN platforms on a standard x86 based COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) platform, which results in optimized content quality, efficiency and delivery costs. Portwell understands the need and importance of reliability, power efficiency, performance, and time to the market, and offers flexible modular design solutions, and custom high-end white box severs to fulfill all these requirements.


Portwell solutions for SDN & NFV application:

1U Server, 2U Server, Storage, Software-defined Storage, PCOM-B634VG.

Storage & Switch

Embracing the ever-growing information technology (IT) market, the trend of "big data growth" presents enormous challenges in terms of volume, variety, velocity, variability and veracity. Expanding storage capacity, new protocol incorporation, and data migration between performance tiers have become the key market trend requirements. Portwell understands the systems’ need to implement QoS throttling, up-to-date operating systems, wide network bandwidth, high reliability and stability to support 24/7 network operation. Portwell provides bare metal, OEM/ODM service, and speedy time-to-market product development service for many different network storage and switch needs.
