Appliance Deployment and Moving to Sandy Bridge's Microarchitecture

By Jamie Epstein, TMCnet Web Editor


As time passes, it’s no secret the world is becoming more connected and users crave access to new technology and applications. Hence, technology providers must closely analyze cloud, virtual and physical appliance deployment models in order to get their solutions to market as quickly as they can. Time, money and resources are all essential to solving deployment challenges. 

When companies like EMC and Motorola partner with appliance deployment expert NEI (News - Alert), NEI applies its “domain expertise and knowledge of telecom platforms, hardware appliances, virtual appliances and the cloud to solve complex design, integration and deployment problems,” said Jeff Hudgins (News - Alert), vice president of Marketing at NEI.

By taking a comprehensive lifecycle approach, the company is assisting software vendors in transitioning to Intel’s (News - Alert) Sandy Bridge platform, as well as beginning to specifically leverage the Intel Xeon E5-2600 family. Touted as a major technological shift, Sandy Bridge will help deliver the promise of much more powerful laptops, desktops, and servers and create faster, more secure enterprise networks.

The multicore performance of these CPUs will offer increased memory, and the dramatic increase in IO throughput and bandwidth is very significant.

“I think this is a real breakthrough, and it’s going to allow applications in the telecom space, such as mobile video to leverage the throughput of that IO to bring some applications out in 2012 that we haven’t seen before,” said Hudgins.

It is vital that these vendors are aware that this migration requires a complete code rewrite, which differs from what was seen in the last architectural change. And as the trend of turnkey appliances ramps up, writing solid code affects how OEMs can leverage all of the features and benefits of the Sandy Bridge architecture in their solutions.

The new microarchitecture affects multiple types of hardware architectures including enterprise class servers, carrier-grade rackmounts and ATCA, and “it’s important to work with a partner like NEI because we cover all of those different architectures and we can help to transition OEMs into the right Sandy Bridge framework when they need it,” Hudgins added.
