A Further Move toward Mass Commercialization of Jintide™
Dec 2, 2017, Wuzhen - Montage Technology along with its Jintide™ ecosystem partners, Tsinghua University (TU), Lenovo and Byosoft, convened a technical launch event to unveil the core technologies, ecosystem and commercial roll-out plan of the Jintide™ Server CPU & Platform. The technical launch coincides with the first day of the Light of the Internet Expo and the 4th World Internet Conference (WIC), a significant occasion for the Internet industry, which marks the start of Jintide™ platform commercialization process.
Jintide™ is a sever platform featuring real-time security monitoring and memoy protection, developed by Montage Technology for use in data centers, which combines Montage Technology’s Hybrid Security DIMM (HSDIMM®) technology, TU’s reconfigurable computing processor (RCP) module, and standard, high-performance Intel® Xeon® processors to meet the critical application requirements in China. During the event, Montage Technology and TU jointly introduced the RCP and HSDIMM® based dynamic CPU security checking technology of the Jintide™ platform. Lenovo showcased its first Jintide™ based commercial server with enhanced security performance and introduced the roll-out plan. Byosoft released the dedicated BIOS designed for the Jintide™ platform.
The technical launch event was held at Wuzhen Internet International Conference & Exhibition Center. Joining Montage, TU, Lenovo and Byosoft are important Jintide™ ecosystem partners including Intel, H3C, CEC Great Wall, Power Leader, Samsung and SK Hynix. Representatives from government and National Research Institutions also joined the event.
Montage, TU and Intel have been collaborating on the joint development of Jintide™ platform since April 2016. This technical launch is another significant achievement of the three-party collaboration after the successful power-on of the Jintide™ SDV (Software Development Vehicle) in April 2017. By working closely with BIOS vendors, system software vendors and DIMM vendors, Montage has developed the complete Jintide™ CPU based solution and expects to launch the first Jintide™ server product in 2018 through collaboration with Lenovo and Byosoft. Montage is currently working with more server OEMs to lay a solid foundation for the mass commercialization of Jintide™ server products.
“We applaud Montage, Tsinghua University, and Jintide™ ecosystem partners for this successful technical launch. We are looking forward to the forthcoming mass commercial deployment of Jintide™. Intel will continue to work with Chinese partners through collaboration and joint innovation to promote local solution research and development so as to meet the needs of Chinese market,” said Ian Yang, Intel Corporate Vice President and President of Intel China.
“Focusing on customer digital transformation with security and control, Lenovo is working closely with Jintide™ ecosystem partners to develop a Jintide™ based server. This product will be launched in the China market in 2018, addressing urgent requests from our customers for secure and reliable IT infrastructure. We are looking forward to a successful commercialization on the Jintide™ platform,” said Bin Wu, General Manager of Lenovo DCG China BU.
“Montage’s Jintide™ Server CPU & Platform offers a reliable solution for system security and data protection to meet the critical application requirements in China. Along with Lenovo and Byosoft Montage will attain mass commercial deployment of Jintide™ based server products in 2018 by leveraging the mature X86 ecosystem. We sincerely look forward to the open and comprehensive collaborations with more partners to make technological breakthroughs and achieve commercial success,” said Dr. Howard Yang, Chairman and CEO of Montage Technology.
