Appliance Deployment Provider Survey Reveals Insights on Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 Adoption

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor


In a recent survey of OEMs and ISVs from NEI (News - Alert), a provider of appliance deployment and lifecycle support services for software technology developers and OEMs, nearly one third of respondents reported that they plan to migrate to the new Intel (News - Alert) Xeon Processor E5-2600 Family within the next 12 months.

Storage and security are the two top market segments preparing to switch to the E5-2600 Family, with 40 percent of participants from storage companies and 36 percent from security industry opting for that migration in the next year, followed by telecom (35 percent) and network management (23 percent).

The appliance deployment provider also found that 68 percent of security companies plan on converting to the E5-2600 Family within the next two years, followed closely by 60 percent in the storage market, and approximately 58 percent in telecom and 44 percent in network management.

NEI provides enterprise-ready appliance deployment solutions including the hardware, OS and system management integration capabilities to help software developers efficiently bring solutions to market. The company assists customers to migrate from their traditional processor core to Intel’s Xeon E5-2600 processor family by offering comprehensive validation and optimization services. These services ensure a smooth migration to this and future Xeon processor upgrades.

In the survey, developers also cited the dramatic performance increases and improved memory access and speed of the Xeon E5-2600 as its most important benefit. Other benefits ranked highly by respondents included the processor’s greater power efficiency and stepped-up bandwidth increases, along with its increased data and infrastructure security.

Respondents also identified their concerns with the platform, most notably the cost and resources to implement, including tests and evaluation. Less important were the potential of significant application rewrite/revisions and incompatibility with existing compilers, libraries, and profiler tools.

NEI was recently ranked 14th among Massachusetts-based companies based on its performance for four quarters ending December 31, 2011, and included in the Globe 100 list of top-performing public companies in the state.
