TOFFEE

TOFFEE is an open-source WAN Optimization (Network Performance Optimization) software which can be used to optimize your critical networks such as:

For example, a typical TOFFEE setup: Learn more about: TOFFEE WAN Optimization deployment

TOFFEE DataCenter
TOFFEE-DataCenter is the new TOFFEE variant meant for Data-Center, Server, HPC, Load Balancing, Cluster/Cloud Computing and SDN deployments. With TOFFEE-DataCenter (and or TOFFEE), OEMs and other equipment vendors can make use of this platform/stack, integrate, port and build WAN Optimization devices/appliances on to their existing product range. Or build a dedicated WAN Optimization hardware product series via the same.

TOFFEE-DataCenter: Supported features

Advantages of TOFFEE/TOFFEE-DataCenter:

  • unlimited TCP sessions
  • optimizes TCP, UDP, ICMP and SCTP
  • optimizes TCP-Header, UDP-Header (IP Header is untouched for seamless end-to-end packet routing)
  • makes existing VPNs perform faster: TOFFEE prevents VPN packet fragmentation which occur commonly due to extra headers and encryption (exceeding MTU)
  • supports IPv4 and IPv6
  • lossless packet compression
  • packet de-duplication
  • application specific optimization: HTTP, SSL, FTP, Skype, Google-Hangouts, DNS, VNC, TeamViewer, MySQL, CIFS, SIP, RTP/RTCP, SMTP, POP, etc
  • stateless packet processing
  • extended to support hardware packet processing as well hardware based loss-less compression (acceleration cards)
  • optimizes live streaming data (such as VoIP, Podcasts, Radio, Live TV), which cannot be optimized via any existing file caching solutions


TrueBench
TrueBench is an unique open-source benchmarking system in which the core system performance and efficiency parameters are measured at extreme high resolution in the order of several million/billion ยต-seconds for a given specific task. TrueBench is a part of The TOFFEE Project research. For more details: visit TrueBench


TOFFEE Butterscotch
TOFFEE-Butterscotch is an open-source software which can be used to save and optimize your Internet/WAN bandwidth. Unlike TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) TOFFEE-Butterscotch is a non peer-to-peer (and asymmetric) network optimization solution. This makes TOFFEE-Butterscotch an ideal tool for all Home and SOHO users.


TOFFEE SoftServer
TOFFEE SoftServer(s) are set of pre-installed and pre-customized software VMs for general, research and for production use. These software VM servers can be used as a standard/reference platform upon which custom user-applications, software applications can be built and tested. For more details: visit TOFFEE SoftServer


TOFFEE Mocha
TOFFEE-Mocha is an open-source WAN Emulation software which can be used to emulate (simulate) WAN networks. You can build test WAN networks and emulate WAN like behavior with TOFFEE-Mocha such as packet delays, random packet drops, packet corruption and so on. TOFFEE-Mocha can also be used as a tool to build TOFFEE WAN Optimization test setup at your lab. With TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulator you can emulate:

  • Latency and Bandwidth
  • Bursty Traffic (Jitter)
  • Congestion
  • Packet Loss


The Linux Channel
The Linux Channel an Youtube Linux channel for advance Linux users, systems and network software programmers and tech enthusiasts.
