ZNYX to Deploy New Telecom Platform, the ZX9210 Compute Blade
By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor
ZNYX revealeded that it will be display its next-generation telecom platform, the ZNYX ZX9210 compute blade, at the Advanced/MicroTCA Summit being held in Santa Clara, Calif. from September 18-19.
Featuring the highest Intel (News - Alert) Architecture (IA) CPU performance found in an AdvancedTCA blade (ATCA), this solution combines Intel server-class technology, the largest memory capacity, and state-of-the-art virtualization capabilities to facilitate highly scalable virtual environments for improved efficiency and lower infrastructure costs.
Shyu added that the ZX9210 offers a pre-integrated environment that helps customers save on costs, while reducing time to market using new IA processors. “ATCA enables higher levels of system integration and is on the forefront of transport technologies," said Shyu.
A key component of ZNYX's compute blade is the second generation Intel Xeon E5 Family processor, formerly known as Sandy Bridge, which enables the ZX9210 to deliver the highest IA CPU performance in an ATCA blade.
With up to 16 processor cores, the ZX9210 supports 512GB Memory for high performance computing and server applications. The solution is available in a 10G configuration, and is the first to offer 16 DIMM sockets for 512GB RAM (News - Alert) for demanding applications. The ZX9210 features two SSD mSATA drives, dual USB, video, and Ethernet.
Bundled at no additional cost, OpenArchitect4 (OA4) provides customers with a fully supported, pre-integrated Linux distribution that has been fine-tuned for hosting large numbers of virtual machines (VM). In addition, driver level tuning with the latest Intel technology achieves a new benchmark in packet distribution to VMs.
In August, ZNYX inked a partnership with Adax, an expert in high-performance packet-processing, security and network infrastructure.
Together, they offer the LTE market a mid-size AdvancedTCA (ATCA) LTE Core solution based on the Aricent (News - Alert) EPC Lite framework. Easy to deploy and highly scalable, this integrated offering enables OEMs, system integrators and application developers to quickly create highly available solutions adapted to specific environments.
