Device consolidation is a key first step in reducing capital and operational expenditures in today’s datacenters and plays a critical role in any public or private cloud strategy. Crossbeam’s X-Series platforms dramatically reduce the footprint of network security appliance and surrounding networking equipment by a ratio of up to 100:1.
How we do it
The Crossbeam Virtual Application Processing
technology allows organizations to seamlessly implement and scale multiple applications in a single chassis. Whether the need is to scale an individual firewall from 5 to 140 Gbps or add capacity to implement additional security layers, the X-Series can deliver without any changes to your network infrastructure.

The performance of most network security appliances is heavily dependent on traffic patterns. Traffic that is not evenly distributed across all available ports generally leads to reduced performance due to limitations in multi-core off-the-shelf appliances . X-Series’ Network Flow Distribution
ensures efficient use of all processing cores regardless of the source or destination port, yielding consolidation ratios that are impossible with other platforms.

The X-Series’ Adaptive Healing Technology
enables customers to prioritize resources in the case that one or more components fails. This means that equipment used in test or stage environments can be automatically provisioned to keep production environments running at full capacity while reducing the amount of spare equipment sitting on the shelf.
