智慧零售與IWOS應用

Smart Retail is a trend in the retail industrial market, and many applications, such as digital signage, video wall, and kiosk, create massive amounts of data. This data overwhelms legacy networks and centralizes data centers and today’s cloud computing infrastructure. Real-time decision-making is critical without incurring high network round-trip costs. It rapidly drives demand for localized data analytics, storage, and processing that legacy cloud technologies can’t meet. Portwell IWOS (Intelligent Workload Orchestrator System) based on Intel® Modular Edge Computing Architecture(Intel® MEC Arch) is installed at the edge to address this demand and provides the flexibility and power to deal with multiple workloads in a centralized system.

Portwell IWOS series system, a multi-functional 5U/4U server grade with dual/quad MEC Arch modules system, powered by Intel® Xeon E-2278GE 3.3GHz. Portwell IWOS System is focused on enabling workload consolidation in the edge devices such as Retail, Banking, Education, and Hospitality. Portwell IWOS System conceptually partitions the processing system into two domains. The first domain was validated to work with multiple MEC Arch modules, which support PCIe Acceleration cards like HDDL (High-Density Deep Learning) and other off-the-shelf PCIe cards, providing the scalability to support current and future workloads such as video and analytic applications. The second domain is the baseboard of the system, which provides the connection for MEC Arch modules. This provides the mechanical mounting point and power along with physically and electrically standard connectors and interfaces (PCIe, USB, SATA, Ethernet, and so on). It is intended that MEC Arch modules will be interoperable with various IWOS baseboards/systems.

Portwell IWOS system solves the complex processor hardware and firmware design challenges and provides the system designer with an easy-to-integrate complete processing building block to create their solution.

Smart Retail

Many retail applications like digital signage, video wall, and kiosk create massive amounts of data. This data overwhelms legacy networks, centralized data centers, and today’s cloud computing infrastructure. Real-time decision-making is critical without incurring high network round-trip costs. It rapidly drives demand for localized data analytics, storage, and processing that legacy cloud technologies cannot meet. Portwell IWOS system integrated multiple modules and centralized management. It is crucial to provide a solution with high security and manageability features, high processing and graphics capabilities, and low latency. Portwell IWOS can adapt to the challenges of Smart Retail.

IWOS-Solutions-Application-Banking

Banking Applications

Banking always processes huge amount of customer information and finance data. It takes to structure the data and then support decision making. The banking system has to consider processing, security, and reliability. It is crucial to provide a solution with high security and accessible manageability features, high processing and graphics capabilities, and low latency. Portwell IWOS system integrated multiple modules and centralized management. These techniques reduced latency and allowed for real-time decision and security, catering to a much better customer experience and a low-cost one.

IWOS FEATURES

High Processing and Graphics Capabilities

Portwell IWOS is a 4U server system with quad MEC Arch modules powered by Intel Xeon E-2278GE 3.3GHz processor. Therefore, Portwell IWOS can provide high-quality performance with high processing and graphics capabilities.

High Security

Portwell IWOS system support Intel® Software Guard. The ability to increase the security of application code and data, giving them more protection from disclosure or modification. Predefined areas in memory that can better protect users’ sensitive information.

Easily Manageability

Portwell IWOS system provides the easy manageability of multiple workloads in a centralized system. By using various MEC Arch modules as nodes sharing resources, each one is driving a specific workload.

High Reliability

Portwell IWOS system provides the easy manageability of multiple workloads in a centralized system. By using various MEC Arch modules as nodes sharing resources, each one is driving a specific workload. Portwell IWOS system can provide applications with high availability (distributed workloads) and high reliability (failover) environment. They enable IWOS RWO failover if one or more workload nodes experience an outage. IWOS RWO also allows administrators and developers to add or subtract container iterations as computing demands change.

With Intel Technology

Portwell IWOS is the state-of-the-art hardware design to enable a powerful platform for virtualization/containerization software with the following technology:
  • Intel® VT: Intel Virtualization Technologies can accelerate VM or Container operation.
  • Intel® AMT: Intel Active Management Technology provides the ability to manage a host remotely.
  • Intel® Software Guard: the ability to increase the security of application code and data, giving them more protection from disclosure or modification. Predefined areas in memory that can better protect users’ sensitive information.

Low Latency

Portwell IWOS system is a centralized system to manage multiple MEC Arch modules. The centralized management effect low latency between each MEC Arch module.
