LSI Tarari Content Processors Drive Down Power Consumption for Demanding XML Applications

MILPITAS, Calif., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced that it will demonstrate the power-saving benefits of utilizing hardware-based XML accelerators in conjunction with multi-core processors at the Intel Developer Forum, August 19-21 at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco, Calif. XML is the dominant transactional data format used in enterprise applications, SOA and Web Services. The use of XML acceleration points the way to significant reductions in data center power consumption, which is forecasted to double in the next five years.

MILPITAS, Calif., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced that it will demonstrate the power-saving benefits of utilizing hardware-based XML accelerators in conjunction with multi-core processors at the Intel Developer Forum, August 19-21 at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco, Calif. XML is the dominant transactional data format used in enterprise applications, SOA and Web Services. The use of XML acceleration points the way to significant reductions in data center power consumption, which is forecasted to double in the next five years.

"A recent report* shows that one watt of extra power consumption can result in almost three watts of additional cooling and power supply overhead, so every watt we save has a multiplying effect," said Randy Smerik, senior vice president, Network Components Group, LSI. "LSI XML solutions reduce power consumption and increase performance, yet are easy to design in."

Tests conducted by LSI show that processing a gigabyte of XML data on a general-purpose processor can increase quiescent power consumption by as much as 90 watts. When the same XML data is processed using an LSI(TM) Tarari(R) XML Content Processor, the average incremental power consumption is less than 20 watts. Hardware-based XML processing also dramatically improves application latency. Using a Watts Up Pro(TM) power meter, LSI will demonstrate the power-saving benefits of the LSI Tarari XML Content Processor when coupled with a Quad-Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor based platform.

LSI Tarari content processors increase network performance, reduce cost and lower power consumption by offloading security, quality of service, content-based billing, bandwidth management and XML processing functions from standard multi-core processors. Tarari solutions are scalable, feature a common application programming interface and can be supplied on standard PCIe 8-lane boards.
