In today’s financial markets, the ability to mine and sort enormous amounts of information in order to properly calculate risk is what sets firms apart. Companies are in a race to find the intelligence buried in their data to enable better decision making and meet ever-tightening regulations. At the same time, there’s pressure to reduce costs and drive down power consumption.
These are new challenges. And new answers are provided by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family and Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family. In fact, leading risk-management software companies are creating applications that use the features in Intel® Xeon® processors to help meet demands across the financial services market segment.
Extreme data crunching
The Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family and Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family represent a leap ahead for Intel® Xeon® processors. They are built to deliver the flexibility, security, processing power, and throughput to handle today’s most data-intensive applications and risk-management systems.
Register for financial services electronic updates:
“The next-generation Intel® Core™ microarchitecture has made a difference. We are seeing higher performance, quite a big gain.”
Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family
Systems powered by our latest processor, the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family, are delivering a host of new reliability and security features and provide up to 25x the performance of older 4-socket single-core servers, enabling up to 29:1 server consolidation,1 up to 95 percent lower operating costs.23
With previous-generation Intel® Xeon® processors having proven their success, leading risk-management software companies are now optimizing software applications for the Intel Xeon processor E7 family.

Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family
The intelligent performance of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family means existing risk management applications will usually see an immediate impact on performance delivered directly from the processor. Built-in security features such as Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) evaluate software component integrity and provide a hardware-based root of trust for enhanced security against malicious software attacks that occur before the virtual machine manager boots. Intel TXT also allows platform integrity status to be reported into management software, providing visibility and a powerful control point for managing the security of virtualized workloads.4
Along with increased performance and security comes peace of mind from knowing you’re running some of the most flexible and efficient servers available.
