Appliance Deployment Provider NEI Unveiling New Products to Speed Up Adoption of Intel's Xeon Processor E5-2600 Family

By Jamie Epstein, TMCnet Web Editor


Headquartered in Canton, Mass. and a major company in the appliance deployment industry since 1997, NEI has revealed that it has created multiple, robust products built on Intel’s (News - Alert) Xeon processor E5-2600 product family, offering increased performance, memory, security and scalability.

 “Innovation is what drives our customers,” said Austin Hipes, vice president of Technology at NEI (News - Alert), in a statement. “The Xeon processor E5-2600 family holds the potential to create significant product differentiation, and the transition to this new architecture is increasing rapidly. Our new standard platforms will help early adopters gain a competitive edge by leveraging the processor’s unmatched performance, energy efficiency, embedded security and scalable port densities.”

The company will be enhancing its Xeon-based appliance platform portfolio when the E-1800R3, E-2900R3 and N-2500R5 processors are introduced to the market. Designed to power compute, storage, backup, security and other vital enterprise solutions, these rack-mount platforms leverage the Xeon E5-2600 family processors. The E5-2600 series overpowers previous models as it offers approximately 70 percent increased performance gains per watt, reduces latency by up to 30 percent, and supports increased I/O throughput, allowing for more than one 10GE connection to occur in each platform.

Some other innovative capabilities of Intel’s new Xeon E5 series of microprocessors are built-in PCIe 3.0 functionality, Trusted Execution Technology, enhanced memory capacity, quicker QuickPath Interconnects (QPI) between CPUs, and easy-to-understand instructions that can ramp up traditional encryption tasks and floating point calculations.

“Many of our customers are quickly migrating to this advanced technology,” Hipes added. “Customers that produce high-performance computing and communications solutions as well as data center and security platforms were among the first to express interest in Intel’s new microarchitecture. Intel’s E5-2600 family of processors can improve how business-critical applications perform and scale with enterprise networks when deployed across physical and virtual server platforms. Security appliances will benefit from Intel’s most advanced CPU cores yet, with the capacity to improve packet processing, cryptography and real-time network forensics.”
