Overview: The HP/Atalla AXL600L SSL Accelerator Card brings the power of a special-purpose peripheral processor to bear on the performance bottleneck of secure applications. It meets the PCI 2.2 specification and provides for easy installation and use. For example a typical secure server is saturated running only a handful of SSL connects per second at 100 percent CPU utilization. The AXL600L card offloads security processing overhead so that CPU utilization devoted to exponentiation drops to near zero. For much less than the cost of another general-purpose processor the AXL600L SSL Accelerator Card frees the server to run the business application.
