Varnish Software Sets New Records In Video Streaming

Varnish Software, in collaboration with Intel and Supermicro, sets new records in video streaming with 4th Gen Intel Xeon processor achieving 1.3 Tbps per server throughput at 1.17 Gbps per Watt.

The combined solution makes it possible for content delivery services and the live event industry to support massive live streaming events in an economical and sustainable way.

The benchmarks were accomplished using Varnish Enterprise 6.0 deployed on a Supermicro 2U CloudDC server powered by 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, without requiring the use of specialized, added-cost TLS offload cards. Supermicro's CloudDC server line is an optimized platform targeting private and public clouds offered in 1U and 2U form factors in single or dual processor configurations. These servers are optimized for balance among processor, memory, storage, expansion, and networking to give the best efficiency. For expansion, each of these servers offer a variety of PCI-Express (PCIe) Gen 5 x8 and x16 slots for the latest PCIe cards. CloudDC is a well-rounded server that gives the best cost to optimized performance ratio.

Importantly, the throughput and energy efficiencies achieved with this benchmark can be applied to a broad range of servers depending on customer requirements. Varnish looks forward to working with key partners Intel and Supermicro on solutions that support a wide range of video and content delivery workloads leveraging cost-effective system footprints and energy efficiency.
