Well, if you are a Star Wars junkie like I am and watched the Mel Brooks spoof movie Space Balls then you probably would spell this as ludicrous speed 🙂
One of the reasons why I want to write this is that I get asked this a lot by my customers. “Why is Intel in the API space” and “Why should we buy from you” but more importantly “What are your differentiators from ——— (you insert the name here of your choice). While the first two are addressed in some of my other blogs (such as Intel Data center software strategy, etc.), I want to talk about specific aspect of our differentiator.
We all know Intel does chips very well. What you may not know is that Intel does software well too. (Refer to my blog Intel does software here). When you are combining the fastest breed of Intel processors and the software intelligence built on top with direct access to the Intel Core we are miles ahead of our competition. One such thing is outlined below.
Latest versions of our gateway products (Service Gateway, Security Gateway, API Gateway, Tokenization Gateway, and Cloud Encryption Gateway) all have one thing in common: Tied to the Intel chips at the hip and perform at highly elevated speeds. The latest such enhancement is an addition for the optimization for cryptographic acceleration using Intel processors. This enabled us to outperform ASIC cryptographic accelerator boards such as Tarrari and Cavium by a wide margin.
