CAR-2090

1U Network Appliance (Intel Comet Lake Platform) With Up To 20 GbE Ports

  • Intel Xeon W, Core, Pentium & Celeron (Comet Lake) CPU
  • 2x DDR4-2933 main memory, up to 64 GB
  • 6x/8x RJ45 GbE onboard with Network Bypass option
  • Up to 20x RJ45/SFP GbE Ports (depending on SKU)
  • 3x SATA, 1x M.2 storage (depending on SKU)
  • 1x LCD (EZIO-38x) or 1x iSAM storage module for 2x 2.5″ drives

The CASwell CAR-2090 in low-profile 1U form factor is an upgraded and enhanced successor of the widely adopted CAR-2080. This server system offers multiple configuration options for professional security applications like firewalls and unified threat management (UTM) to effectively protect company networks.

The CAR-2090 is based on Intel’s 10th core generation (“Comet Lake”) and can be equipped with Xeon W-1200E or Core i3- to i9-10000 and even Pentium or Celeron processor models that provide up to 10 cores and 20 parallel threads while staying at or under 95 watts thermal design power. This server system offers two DIMM slots for up to 64GB DDR4-2933 main memory and ECC depending on CPU model and PCH. This ensures the solution can handle demanding and advanced network tasks while staying cool and energy-efficient.

Depending on PCH choice by customer the CASwell CAR-2090 offers six or eight Gbit-Ethernet ports supporting two pairs of Network Bypass 4.0. This can be expanded to 20 GbE ports with an optional CASwell NIP or NIN module with up to eight network ports and one internal daughter board for four more Ethernet ports (RJ45 or SFP) when the Intel W480E PCH is used. Both CASwell network module and daughter board are connected to the main system by high-speed PCI Express 3.0.

By standard, the CAR-2090 features three internal SATA 3.0 ports for storage (one for SATADOM). When the W480E PCH is used, there is one M.2 slot available onboard for a fast PCIe NVMe or SATA SSD. The LCD module in the front of the device holds one 2.5″ SATA disk tray for storage but that EZIO module can be changed to an ISAM module for two front swappable 2.5″ SATA drives.

Besides traditional network security applications such as firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, anti-spam, anti-virus, UTM and WAN, the CASwell CAR-2090 can also be used for software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) applications as well as network management applications such as virtualized data center, ADC, QoS, server load balancer, wireless controller, and industrial automation control via Ethernet TCP/IP.
