Intel Encourages Use Of Server Acceleration Technology
Intel Corporation announced today that it will encourage networking companies to benefit from a key server data input and output acceleration technology designed and added to its server product lines earlier this year.
A component of Intel I/OAT (Input/Output Acceleration Technology), Intel QuickData technology is a data acceleration engine that enables other networking and server vendors to increase the throughput of server data traffic. Key supporters of Intel QuickData Technology include Broadcom, Fujitsu-Siemens, IBM, Mellanox, Microsoft and VMware.
Introduced as part of I/OAT with the Intel Xeon 5100 series processor-based platforms earlier this year, the DMA (Direct Memory Access) engine in Intel’s server and workstation platform chipsets are the foundation of Intel QuickData Technology. I/OAT is already supported by a broad range of server vendors including IBM, Hitachi, NEC, Toshiba, Acer, Lenovo, Samsung, Supermicro and Tyan. Intel QuickData Technology will extend that support to a broad range of device manufacturers moving forward.
Intel QuickData Technology also offers an acceleration solution that will benefit virtualized environments.
“Intel QuickData Technology is a platform solution that addresses the computing overhead and system level bottlenecks associated with TCP/IP based communication as opposed to TCP Offload Engines which only address part of the problem,” said Michael Kagan, vice president of architecture, Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox is embracing Intel QuickData Technology and will implement support for the technology in our adapters that will seamlessly fit into the total platform solution to accelerate TCP/IP communication.”
