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.

Arlington Heights, IL – GigeNET, an innovator in resilient managed cloud and dedicated hosting, announced, through their subsidiary GigeNET Cloud, a new cloud server offering, GigeNET Cloud Lite.

“Our classic cloud product allowed for extreme levels of granular control over system resources with the ability to scale memory by the megabyte. However, this form of control is no longer a common use case. Instead, customers have grown accustomed to consuming public clouds in a package form, and our Lite Cloud product reflects this reality,” said Ameen Pishdadi, founder, and president of GigeNET Cloud.

GigeNET’s Lite cloud product offers self-healing SAN, high availability, live migrations, seamless failover, fastest route optimization, and much more.

Cloud Lite comes in three forms Balanced, Core, and Max:

  • Cloud Lite Balanced offers a standard mix of both memory and compute power allocation. These cloud servers provide a best of breed experience for a wide range of applications.
  • Cloud Lite Core offers an increased amount of compute necessary for applications that are CPU intensive. The Core family is suited for high computational scientific workloads, high-trafficked websites, and online gaming.
  • Cloud Lite Max offers increased memory for high-performance applications. The Max family is excellent for dev environments, performance-intensive databases, and the like. In the next iteration of Max packages, memory will scale up to 64GB with possible future increases likely.

“GigeNET Cloud Lite may not have the same level of control as our classic offering, but, like our classic cloud product, it does score consistently higher in both performance and reliability tests when compared to other clouds. We wanted to make sure we kept the innovations GigeNET is known for without compromise and I think the team did just that,” Joe De Paolo, SVP of Products at GigeNET.

GigeNET’s Cloud Lite offering runs on their standardized KVM platform backed Xeon-D hardware for consistent high-performance and availability.
