The powerful coupling of the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 and the Intel C610 PCH, codenamed “Grantley,” is a platform designed to meet the challenges of today’s virtualization and security management.

Improvements offered by the Grantley platform are evident in Lanner's FW-8896, a 2U rackmount network appliance capable of boosting network appliance’ processing power, memory bandwidth, Ethernet throughput and I/O efficiencies for consolidating virtual machines, conducting SDN and for managing heavy network traffic.

In this whitepaper, we will demonstrate the performance differences between Intel new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 and previous generations by conducting benchmark tests on Lanner products.

Regarding the future standard of server platforms, the previously launched Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v2 (code named Romley) platform performs reasonably in most applications. However, in today’s security-sensitive, mission-critical, and heavy-traffic cloud computing ecology, Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v2 may experience performance limits at times. Therefore, Lanner launches its new network communication systems based on Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v2 successor— Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v3 (code name Grantley). This immensely powerful platform comes with several significant technological upgrades for today’s demand of high-performance computing needs in network traffic management, virtualization, and integrated security handlings.

The new Intel Xeon processor E5 v3 platform emphasizes the integration of the next generation Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 (Haswell-EP) family along with Intel® C612 chipset series (Wellsburg). The new Intel Xeon CPU delivers major upgrades in cores, memory bandwidth, Ethernet throughput, and I/O efficiencies.

To respond to the demands for higher network performance, Lanner Electronics has launched its high-end systems based on the new platform designed with Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 family and Intel® C612 chipset. The R&D department of Lanner Electronics has conducted benchmark testing based on our high-end model FW-8896. The results of the benchmarks will demonstrate the enhanced performance and throughputs of the new Intel server platforms.
