Jevons paradox states that when a resource is used more efficiently, the consumption of that resource actually rises due to the lower prices and/or increased availability of the product. Nowhere in the data center is that more true than when you look at server performance. Storage has always been a bottleneck in compute systems because of the vast performance difference between the storage subsystem and CPU and memory. Together Lenovo, Intel and VMware address the bottleneck of storage performance in Hyperconverged systems with the introduction of Intel Optane technology to Lenovo vSAN ReadyNodes. Join us to hear how these new ReadyNodes from Lenovo will help you to increase the performance of your applications, increase VM density and still improve end-user response times.Read more >

With scores of major wireless carriers now rolling out LTE service across the globe, they need ways to offer high-bandwidth services to their subscribers efficiently and effectively while fiercely guarding the security of their advanced 4G networks.
In this webinar, Artesyn will show how its MaxCore™ platform leverages the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) cryptography instruction set of the Intel Xeon-D and the advanced switching and high speed interfaces of the Intel Ethernet Multi-host Controller FM10000 (formerly Red Rock Canyon) to provide a highly efficient and cost effective security gateway solution.
For example firewall performance of up to 600Gbps can be achieved by combining four 100GE smart IO cards based on FM10000 with 22 Intel Xeon-Ds populating the balance of MaxCore™’s 15 PCIe slots. The result is a system with 15x the density of a comparable rack mount server implementation. In addition, by using low power multicore processors, the system can cut energy consumption by up to 70%.

5G brings many new capabilities over 4G including higher bandwidths, lower latencies, and more efficient use of radio spectrum. However, these improvements require a large increase in computing power in the base station. Fortunately the Xeon Scalable Processor series (Skylake-SP) recently introduced by Intel has a new high-performance instruction set called Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) which is capable of delivering the compute needed to support the exciting new world of 5G.
In his talk Daniel will give an overview of the new capabilities of the Intel AVX-512 instruction set and show why they are so beneficial to supporting 5G efficiently. The most obvious difference is that Intel AVX-512 has double the compute performance of previous generations of instruction sets. Perhaps surprisingly though it is the addition of brand new instructions that can make the biggest improvements. The new instructions mean that software algorithms can become more efficient, thereby enabling even more effective use of the improvements in computing performance and leading to very high performance 5G NR software implementations.
