Engagement / Document Library / ADVA SmartWAN Using 6WIND VSR with Intel® QuickAssist Technology Performance Benchmarking Report
Last Updated: Nov 17, 2022
ADVA, 6WIND, and Intel commissioned EANTC to do performance testing on 6WIND’s Virtual Service Router (VSR). The objective of the test was to compare the VSR performance running directly on the server (bare metal) with the performance while running in a virtual machine (VM) on ADVA’s Ensemble Connector and to also demonstrate the performance impact of IPsec accelerated with Intel® QuickAssist Technology. Ensemble Connector supports a wide range of Intel® CPUs and third-party servers, but we wanted to show what was possible with a small and economical device.
