features

REDWOOD SHORES, CA – Oracle announced the general availability of Java SE 10 (JDK 10). JDK 10 is a production-ready implementation of the Java SE 10 Platform Specification, as specified by JSR 383 in the Java Community Process. The first release in Oracle’s new six-month Java innovation cycle, Java SE 10 provides a number of new features, including local variable types, parallel full GC for G1, and experimental features such as the Java-Based JIT Compiler.

Java SE 10 was created in close collaboration with the OpenJDK Community, a diverse set of contributors whom have collaborated for more than ten years on an open-source implementation of the Java SE platform. Key features in the new release include:

  • Local-variable type inference: enhances the Java language to extend type inference to declarations of local variables with initializers.
  • Parallel Full GC for G1: improves G1 worst-case latencies by making the full GC parallel.
  • Application Class-Data Sharing: optimizes startup time and footprint by extending the existing Class-Data Sharing (“CDS”) feature to allow application classes to be placed in the shared archive.
  • Experimental Java-Based JIT Compiler: enables the Java-based JIT compiler, Graal, to be used as an experimental JIT compiler on the Linux/x64 platform

“Oracle is committed to rapidly evolving and delivering new innovations in the Java platform – this being the first in our newly adopted release cycle and licensing model,” said Georges Saab, Vice President, Software Development, Java Platform Group at Oracle. “We’re especially proud of the simplicity of this release, which introduces useful new features, removes unnecessary elements, and is easy for developers to use.”

Java is the world’s most popular programming language, with over 12 million developers running Java. Java is also the #1 developer choice for cloud, with over 21 billion cloud-connected Java virtual machines.

HOPKINTON, MA – Dell EMC introduces its Virtual Edge Platform (VEP) family, the first-to-market software-defined wide area network solution (SD-WAN) with the new Intel® Xeon® D-2100 processor, to help speed digital transformation by connecting the enterprise edge to the cloud via universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE). The new virtualized solutions will enhance or displace expensive fixed-function access hardware.

As a leading use case, the Dell EMC VEP provides next-generation access to the network via SD-WAN. By enhancing WAN operations and economics, service providers and enterprise customers can drive growth, strengthen competitive differentiation and improve the end-user experience.


“There is a real need among service providers and enterprises to update network operations to address distributed and cloud-based applications and capitalize on changing economics enabled by cloud models,” said Tom Burns, senior vice president, Networking & Service Provider Solutions. “By infusing Open Networking into access networks to the cloud with the Virtual Edge Platform family, Dell EMC can help customers modernize infrastructure and transform operations while automating service delivery and processes.”

To control costs, reduce complexity and enable scalability for growth, many service providers and enterprises are modernizing infrastructure, not only in the data center, but out to the network edge, including branch offices. Using software-defined architecture, Open Networking and virtualization to improve network access, organizations can accelerate their digital transformation goals to take advantage of new market opportunities more quickly, flexibly and efficiently.

Dell EMC VEP4600 – Bringing Open Networking to the enterprise edge

Built with advanced intelligence for network virtualization and software-defined architecture, the Dell EMC VEP4600 provides an open Intel® architecture-based platform to support multiple simultaneous virtual network functions (VNF). Numerous proprietary physical devices can be consolidated into this single uCPE while maintaining the high performance levels needed to host many. The modular design includes room to grow with front panel expandability so the platform can be easily upgraded or serviced in the field as needed.

The VEP 4600 is powered by the new Intel Xeon D-2100 product family, Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT), and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK). These features help optimize compute resources and provide efficiency for growing security workloads.

The Intel Xeon D-2100 product family’s performance, power and form factor have been tuned for higher performance-per-watt for SD-WAN and uCPE. It delivers more than 1.5x faster CPU performance1, up to 2x improvement in packet processing, 2x memory bandwidth and up to 4x memory capacity2. These processors enable complex packet processing and other scale-out workloads with responsiveness and low latency.

The cost- and power-efficient Dell EMC VEP4600 expands upon Dell EMC’s Open Networking initiative that offers customers choice and the ability to protect their investment. The Dell EMC VEP platform provides the performance, programmability and time-to-delivery to rapidly adapt new service requirements such as routing, firewalling and deep-packet inspection. These additional VNFs can be added to the VEP by customers and/or Dell EMC in the future if needed.

For large operators and enterprises with multiple locations, Dell EMC can help smooth procurement, deployment and support through its global manufacturing scale, logistics and services with a single point of contact and accountability.

Accelerating SD-WAN adoption with validated solutions

To help service providers speed time to market and enterprises simplify deployments, Dell EMC offers three validated solutions using the VEP4600. These solutions provide turnkey SD-WAN capabilities with pre-validated and pre-integrated configurations combining Dell EMC infrastructure and support services with industry-leading SD-WAN software from Silver Peak Systems, VeloCloud Networks and Versa Networks. Architected and tested to Dell EMC standards, these offerings enable customers to quickly deploy cost effective SD-WAN solutions or managed services.
