Superior Streaming Quality

Real-time streaming services have grown exponentially since the early ’90s. Communications service providers (CSPs) are anticipating continued market expansion with the rise of new over-the-top (OTT) services, richer content, and network services offering augmented and virtual reality.

With all of these Visual Cloud workloads, CSPs need next-generation content delivery network (CDN) services. That's why Intequus has verified the 1029U-TN12RV as Intel® Select Solutions for Visual Cloud Delivery Networks.

1029U-TN12RV uses an optimized hardware design based on the Intel® Xeon® processors, Intel® Optane™ persistent memory, and Intel® Ethernet 700 Series Network Adapters. This design incorporates the most common and popular open-source CDN caching frameworks such as NGINX and Apache Traffic Server (ATS). It also incorporates open-source media libraries such as FFmpeg, Media Server Studio, and Scalable Video Technology for media transcoding.

Acceleration is built into the system for key CDN workload functions such as cryptography, data compression, and transcoding.

1029U-TN12RV uses non-uniform memory access (NUMA)-balanced I/O for maximum throughput and consistent latency. It also features new memory and storage solution options for improved scalability, reduced latency, and cost savings.

Intel Select Solution Brief

Optimized For Visual Cloud Workloads

CDN cloud servers need both high throughput and low latency to deliver smooth and consistent real-time content. The 1029U-TN12RV uses several Intel technologies to deliver this performance. These include:

Intel® Xeon® Platinum & 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Gold processors

These processors feature up to 24 cores per socket with up to 2.3 GHz for optimized visual computing performance. 2nd generation Intel Xeon Gold processors also feature high-value platform technologies. These include Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) for full isolation of multiple virtualized workloads and Intel® Boot Guard technology for boot integrity.
Intel® Optane™ persistent memory

Intel Optane persistent memory addresses memory constraints for latency-sensitive CDN use cases such as live streaming. It does this by offering lower per-Gigabyte memory cost and similar performance
as DRAM.

Intel® Visual Compute Accelerator 2 (Intel® VCA 2)

This hardware accelerator card provides high-density video transcoding. The Intel VCA 2 enhances the Intel Xeon Scalable processor for powerful media performance and Intel® Quick Sync Video for ultra-fast media transcode performance.

Intel® Solid State Drive DC Family (Intel® SSD DC Family)

The Intel SSD DC Family offers outstanding quality, reliability, and advanced manageability and serviceability. When used for caching, Intel Optane SSDs provide high endurance and can increase scale by accommodating more capacity than DRAM-based memory technologies. Intel® QuickAssist Technology

This hardware acceleration technology provides lookaside cryptographic and compression/decompression co-processing services for the CPU.

Intel® Ethernet 700 Series Network Adapters

Intel Ethernet 700 Series Network Adapters support 25GbE network connections and deliver validated performance that meets quality thresholds for data resiliency and service reliability with broad interoperability. All Intel Ethernet products are backed by worldwide pre- and post-sales support and offer a limited lifetime warranty.
