QNAP to leverage 2nd Gen Intel Xeon processors for data-centric workflows

03 Apr 2019

With the launch of the 2nd Gen Intel Xeon processors, QNAP will introduce new products that feature dual processors with higher performance and hardware-enhanced security in its future network and storage solutions to assure agile service delivery for the ever-demanding data-centric workloads.

QNAP supposedly not only empowers storage solutions with software-defined services and computing capabilities but also innovates network products to optimise high-speed IT environment for tech-challenged businesses. 

QNAP VP YT Lee says, “The rampant growth of data and demands in network transformation are placing a lot of businesses under pressure to find more compelling solutions that can continue to perform. 

“As a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, QNAP is also investing more efforts to develop uCPE (Universal Customer Premise Equipment) solutions, and the integration of the next generation Intel Xeon processors helps upgrade our solutions to the next level for tackling the most demanding workloads: from multi-cloud to intelligent edge and back.”

The new processors are supposedly designed to support an expanding range of existing and emerging data centre and network workloads. QNAP is supposedly committed to delivering a new content-aware storage solution that optimises mission-critical streaming tasks and boosts performance for the CDN (Content Delivery Network), and co-work with IEI to deliver powerful NFVi (Network Function Virtualisation Infrastructure) for the increasingly complex network. 

Both companies will supposedly provide industrial strength means of resolving challenges in the data-centric era by implementing Intel Xeon Scalable platforms that feature higher performance and breakthrough memory technology. These two solution configurations will be submitted for verification as Intel Select Solutions for Visual Cloud Delivery Network and NFVI respectively.

QNAP continues to develop more software-defined storage and network solutions to swap out single-purpose hardware for variable applications, while Intel’s solutions provide performance and features to back QNAP products into the future.
