Toshiba NPEngine Directly Streams Video Content from SSD to IP Networks


Toshiba has developed NPEngine, a hardware engine for streaming servers that directly delivers video content from SSD to IP networks, without accessing the server's CPU or memory resources.

The NPEngine can simultaneously deliver up to 64,000 high quality video streams at a rate of 40Gigabit per sec, far surpassing the performance of a typical server, and reducing power consumption, the number of servers and the space required.

The idea behind designing the NPEngine is to offload the CPU and memory resources of a server used for streaming video over IP networks to PCs, tablet PCs, smartphones and Smart TVs. Current servers handle streaming with software, utilizing the server's integrated CPU and SDRAM. This limits the number of video streams that can be delivered simultaneously to approximately 20,000 on a typical 2RU server, the workhorse among compact size servers. With these limitations, the solution to handle hundreds of thousands of streams at once has been to increase the number of servers.



Toshiba's NPEngine provides an alternative that eliminates burdens on server CPU and memory resources by delivering video content stored on SSD directly to IP networks. This direct delivery also boosts the number of high quality video streams that can be delivered at once to 64,000 at 40Gb per sec. This not only more than triples the performance of a 2RU server, it also cuts space requirements by 70% and power consumption by 77%, for server arrays supporting simultaneous delivery of 1,000,000 video streams.

NPEngine is also compliant with the newest HTTP adaptive bit rate streaming without any modification of existing HTTP streaming applications.

Server products running NPEngine will be available this year.
