Lanner delivers 2P Intel Quad-Core Xeon network appliance
Press release, May 15; Ricky Morris, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 15 May 2007]

Lanner Electronics has announced the FW-8890, a 2U rackmount appliance for enterprise-grade network applications. Combining an Intel 5000P server-grade chipset and two Dual- or Quad-Core Xeon sequence processors enables the FW-8890 to deliver unparalleled performance which is backed up by Lanner's ODM service to ensure both flexibility and smooth integration, highlighted the company.

"The FW-8890 redefines the design of high-performance network security hardware," stated Lawrence Chao, Executive Vice President. "It integrates an Intel 5000P chipset, an onboard Cavium VPN accelerator, and a PCI Express network traffic bus, allowing our customers to deliver faster, feature-rich applications – which are simultaneously flexible, expandable, and easy to maintain."

The FW-8890 builds upon the architecture of earlier generations by offering a PCI Express (PCIe) network traffic bus, up to 12 Gigabit RJ45 or SFP fiber ports, a PCIe enhanced north-southbridge link, four hot-swappable SATA bays, and eight FB-DIMMs. These enhancements give application designers both greater freedom in building today's network appliances and ample headroom for satisfying future hardware demands, Lanner pointed out.

The FW-8890 network appliance is designed for multi-service communication applications – such as Business-to-Business Gateways, Unified Threat Management Appliances, and Triple Play Servers. By employing the FW-8890 in multi-service applications, customers can optimize data density, reduce operating costs, and improve business continuity with an energy-efficient network infrastructure, noted Lanner.
