SAN JOSE, CA – March 25, 2019 – cPacket Networks, a leading provider of nextgeneration network performance monitoring and packet broker solutions, has entered
into an agreement with Solarflare to acquire the company’s SolarCapture® Appliance
business.

Solarflare’s SolarCapture Appliance business provides network traffic capture capability

and record keeping. Now an integral part of cPacket’s cStor (integrated packetforensics for advanced real-time-analytics) product-line, the combined solution
provides 100-percent lossless capture for speeds up to 40Gbps.

“Making the SolarCapture Appliance technology a permanent addition to our cStor
product family enables us to extend our high-performance analytics offerings to our
customers and deepen our reach into financial-services and similar demanding
industries. This will allow our customers to take advantage of new capabilities with
feature, performance, and cost benefits cPacket offers,” said Brendan O’Flaherty, CEO
of cPacket Networks.

“A year ago, Solarflare entered into a development partnership with cPacket to respond
to our customers’ requests for a best-in-class capture appliance platform with advanced
analytics and GUIs,” said Russell Stern, CEO of Solarflare. “As the partnership evolved,
we concluded that our customers will be better served by the transfer of our
SolarCapture appliance business to cPacket. This agreement will allow Solarflare to
continue our focus on transforming the way applications use networks.”
