For years, service providers have capitalized on the advantages of industry-standard servers for media processing in the cloud.

These industry-standard servers, typically optimized for Intel architecture, offer the versatility to handle diverse visual cloud workloads and the total cost of ownership (TCO) advantages of off-the-shelf Intel-based hardware.Today, we are building on this foundation for media processing in the cloud with new breakthroughs in performance and TCO made possible by the launch of the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.

The successor to the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 and E7 families, the Intel Xeon Scalable processors deliver up to 28 cores, significant increases in memory and I/O bandwidth, and built-in accelerators like Intel® AVX-512, along with six DDR4 memory channels and 48 PCIe lanes.

These characteristics make Intel Xeon Scalable processors a great choice for accelerating media processing in the cloud such as software-based transcoding and video stitching.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
