Home / 6WIND Solutions / 6WIND Boosts IPsec with Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

Data centers and managed network operators looking for performance-oriented IPsec applications can now turn to Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8170 processors and 6WIND Virtual Security Gateway™ network software.

6WIND is a recognized provider of advanced networking technologies, and 6WIND Virtual Security Gateway™ is a high-performance, ready-to-use IPsecurity VPN software, ready to be deployed in bare metal environments or as a virtual machine on COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) servers.

Network consumers are increasingly moving to virtualized network environments for potential cost savings, both in upfront infrastructure costs, as well as ongoing maintenance and operations costs.

Historically, virtualized environments can sometimes fall short of promised benefits. Advances in chip manufacturing, combined with modern software, can help bridge the performance gap that these applications can encounter.

The Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family is the new foundation for secure, agile, multi-cloud data centers. It represents the biggest platform advancements in a decade. The processor family is architected for exceptional workload-optimized performance and hardware-enhanced security. Designed for trusted data service delivery, the processor family is fueled by significant leaps in I/O, memory, storage and network technologies.

6WIND Virtual Security Gateway™ performance tests on Xeon® Platinum servers demonstrate a 50% increase in processing power for common applications such as multi-site VPNs and backhaul security gateways. This performance benefit also scales in conjunction with the addition of cores. These applications are designed for today’s multi-core processor environments.
