DFI Integrates Intel Virtualization Technology into Embedded Solutions, Accelerating Workload Consolidation

dfi-integrates-intel-virtualization

DFI is devoted to developing AI edge computing products. Embedded solutions effectively reduce basic equipment and utilize more existing resources; furthermore, they also provide a highly flexible and scalable platform to meet the needs of various workloads, facilitating the integration of different devices and simplifying the architecture. DFI has taken the lead in jointly integrating ultra-compact embedded products, and Intel display chip processors to promote iGPU (Integrated Graphics) SR-IOV virtualization technology and commercialize modules.

With the current Software-Defined AIoT trend, hardware-supported virtualization technology is essential in the application environment. DFI products ranging from the industrial grade motherboard, ADS310, equipped with 12th generation Intel CPU, to the EC70A-TGU system and tablets, leverage virtualization technology to integrate and set up multiple virtual platform spaces. In addition to optimizing operations, it saves the cost of connecting data to the cloud and improves yield and efficiency.

DFI President Alexander Su said, "Benefiting from Intel's technology and the support of SR-IOV architecture, the hardware can execute different operating systems through a single CPU and integrate large amounts of shared data. Due to substantial improvement in drawing performance within a virtual environment, features such as color recognition, measurements, and appearance flaw detection have increased in speed."

Intel believes that cost considerations are a vital concern in industrial automation. DFI's hardware can support SR-IOV virtualization technology. Through workload consolidation, it can improve cost efficiency, resolve the long term problem of graphics computing performance, and fulfill the needs of large-scale deployments in application fields.

DFI's ECI and EIAMR products have been tested by Intel's ESDQ, and DFI and Intel have released a technical white paper. Through working closely with Intel, DFI continues to assist and optimize the development of various services in IoT applications, accelerating the realization of Software-Defined IoT.

Smart poles and smart retail are also gradually moving toward the trend of workload integration. Smart Poles can identify pedestrian behavior with roadside and vehicle equipment and synchronize the data to the smart poles. Many devices can also execute high-performance AI edge computing and speed up people flow detection, people counting, monitoring, etc. Regarding smart retail, identification systems can be implemented to determine consumer age and gender to understand customers.

Leostream Enhances Security and Management of vSphere Hybrid Cloud Deployments

Business Wire | January 29, 2024

Leostream Corporation, the world's leading Remote Desktop Access Platform provider, today announced features to enhance security, management, and end-user productivity in vSphere-based hybrid cloud environments. The Leostream platform strengthens end-user computing (EUC) capabilities for vSphere users, including secure access to both on-premises and cloud environments, heterogeneous support, and reduced cloud costs. With the Leostream platform as the single pane of glass managing EUC environments, any hosted desktop environment, including individual virtual desktops, multi-user sessions, hosted physical workstations or desktops, and hosted applications, becomes simpler to manage, more secure, more flexible, and more cost-effective. Significant ways the Leostream platform expands vSphere’s capabilities include: Security The Leostream platform ensures data remains locked in the corporate network, and works across on-premises and cloud environments, providing even disparate infrastructures with the same levels of security and command over authorization, control, and access tracking. The Leostream platform supports multi-factor authentication and allows organizations to enforce strict access control rules, creating an EUC environment modeled on a zero-trust architecture. Multivendor/protocol support The Leostream platform was developed from the ground up for heterogeneous infrastructures and as the connection management layer of the EUC environment, the Leostream platform allows organizations to leverage vSphere today and other hypervisors or hyperconvergence platforms in the future as their needs evolve. The Leostream platform supports the industry’s broadest array of remote display protocols, including specialized protocols for mission-critical tasks. Consistent EUC experience The Leostream platform enables IT to make changes to the underlying environment while ensuring the end user experience is constant, and to incorporate AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, or OpenStack private clouds into their environment without disruptions in end-user productivity. By integrating with corporate Identity Providers (IdPs) that employees are already familiar with, and providing employees with a single portal they use to sign in, the Leostream platform offers simplicity to users too. Connectivity The Leostream Gateway securely connects to on-prem and cloud resources without virtual private networks (VPNs), and eliminates the need to manage and maintain security groups. End users get the same seamless login and high-performance connection across hybrid environments including corporate resources located off the internet. Controlling cloud costs The Leostream Connection Broker implements automated rules that control capacity and power state in the cloud, allowing organizations to optimize their cloud usage and minimize costs, such as ensuring cloud instances aren’t left running when they are no longer needed. The Connection Broker also intelligently pools and shares resources across groups of users, so organizations can invest in fewer systems, reducing overall cost of ownership. “These features deliver a streamlined experience with vSphere and hybrid or multi-cloud resources so end users remain productive, and corporate data and applications remain secure,” said Leostream CEO Karen Gondoly. “At a time when there is uncertainty about the future of support for VMware’s end-user computing, it’s important to bring these options to the market to show that organizations can extend vSphere’s capabilities and simultaneously plan for the future without disruption to the workforce.” About Leostream Corporation Leostream Corporation, the global leader in Remote Desktop Access Platforms, offers comprehensive solutions that enable seamless work-from-anywhere environments for individuals across diverse industries, regardless of organization size or location. The core of the Leostream platform is its commitment to simplicity and insight. It is driven by a unified administrative console that streamlines the management of users, cloud desktops, and IT assets while providing real-time dashboards for informed decision-making. The company continually monitors the evolving remote desktop landscape, anticipating future trends and challenges. This purposeful, proactive approach keeps clients well-prepared for the dynamic changes in remote desktop technology.
