Companies using ATCA platforms are able to take advantage of the latest Intel® Xeon® processors E5-2600 v2 and hardware acceleration for security and compression following recent introductions from Intel and upgrades by several manufacturers to their ATCA blades and hardware acceleration mezzanine modules. These advances will significantly increase performance for applications using DPI, security and compression functions including policy management and mobile infrastructure.
In this blog I am going to explore the benefits of using Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 v2 and the latest Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx for ATCA based systems. The examples in this blog are from Advantech, a Premier member of the Intel® Intelligent Systems Alliance, and ADLINK Technology and Radisys, both Associate members of the Alliance. The 250-plus members of the Alliance collaborate closely with Intel® to create hardware, software, tools, and services to help speed intelligent systems to market.
