    • How to Multiply Video Density on x86 Servers at a Fraction of the Cost
      How to Multiply Video Density on x86 Servers at a Fraction of the Cost Linsey Miller, Director of Marketing, Artesyn & Rik Dunphy,Principal Engineer, Intel Recorded: Apr 21 2015 5:00 pm UTC 43 mins
    • Many broadcast and streaming products that run on x86 technology haven’t yet scaled to their maximum potential density or met the need for lower cost. The network growth for video services is driven by many factors such as multiscreen OTT, video on demand, higher resolutions, more codec support needed, all pushing transcoding functions needed in MSO, ISP, CSP, CDN networks. Greater density is needed to scale these applications, and x86 technology running on standard servers can meet much higher density levels and much lower cost points to be competitive. The time is now for those applications to multiply density (by a factor of 6-8X) without any change needed to the underlying x86 architecture.

      With Intel tools offered such as Quick Synch and Media SDK, developers can advance the migration to the highest density, while preserving application development. Using Artesyn SharpStreamer technology developers can preserve existing application software and achieve 6-8 times the density/RU in standard PCIE, 1U, 2U and larger form factors that fit standard rack server and cloud environments. Using two example applications, Next-Day TV OTT content delivery and Real-time Broadcast ABR transcoding, CAPEX savings are dramatic, giving applications the ability to use only one server vs. 16 or 24 to handle equal densities, also consuming far less OPEX costs derived from power and cooling required. Through OpenStack and the SharpStreamer technology applications can also encompass cloud provisioning and management so they are not constrained to baremetal hardware and can be virtually deployed.

      The Rise of the x86 Mainframe Archie Hendryx, vArchitect, Virtual Computing Environment Company Recorded: Jun 13 2012 8:00 am UTC 31 mins
    • If it wasn’t for the cost and complexity of Mainframes would the industry have ever shifted towards Open Systems? The performance, maintenance and security advantages of Mainframes were never disputed yet the complexity of running them required a unique expertise while the cost could rarely be justified except for high scale data warehousing. But what if it was possible to apply the advantages of the Mainframe model to an x86 infrastructure? What if that cost and complexity could be replaced by simplicity and CAPEX & OPEX reduction? These are the questions that are being asked by businesses across the globe as they look to reassess how they approach their IT with decreasing budgets and increasing demands. The once common debates related to speeds and feeds of different components are now giving way to discussions on how IT can quickly deliver a suitable service to the business. It is this debate that is leading the industry to an inflection point and the consequent rise of the x86 Mainframe. Join Archie Hendryx as he discusses how a new approach to IT infrastructure is needed to solve the incumbent challenges that are being faced within the industry.

      Archie Hendryx has been in the I.T. industry and more specifically the storage and virtualisation field for close to 10 years. He currently works as a vArchitect for the company VCE. Archie has recently been awarded VMware's vExpert status for the second year running and is a certified SNIA & HDS Expert as well as a certified EMC, NetApp and Cisco specialist.
