Re: Impact of Intel Xeon Scalable on NFV Performance Blockchain is one of IBM's strategic initiatives. Hardware accelerated/assisted has always been part of its MO. For example, even back in DB2 early days, there was a hardware assisted component involved.

Re: Impact of Intel Xeon Scalable on NFV Performance Interesting to see IBM working on blockchain hardware. To date, the only hardware for blockchains has been miners and wallets. 

Hardware has a lot of potential in blockchain for security reasons. Intel obviously recognizes this.

Impact of Intel Xeon Scalable on NFV Performance In his latest blog, AT&T's John Donovan says ..."We're running production traffic on servers using Intel's newly announced Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable family. We began using these new processors in March and have already seen a 30% performance improvement over the Intel® Xeon® E5v3 platform. We've also seen a 25% reduction in the number of servers needed per cluster, with a larger data throughput, improving our overall TCO."

It would be useful for the industry to get more details on the specific NFV workloads tested and how the overall performance improvement was achieved. Request Light Reading to bring more "light" to this important aspect !
