Siemens Healthcare, Cisco, and Intel have collaborated to evaluate the Cisco Unified Computing System* with servers powered by the new Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family as a platform for Siemens Soarian Clinicals. The performance study reveals:
-A single Cisco Unified Computing System blade powered by four Intel Xeon E7-4870 processors, each with 10 cores, exceeds service-level performance objectives, running a workload that simulates the clinical and operational demands of approximately 2 medium-sized hospitals during peak hours.
-A 10 percent improvement in response time was achieved, with 20 percent fewer computing resources consumed compared to prior results achieved in the server test powered with the previous-generation Intel Xeon processor 7500 series, demonstrating a significant increase in headroom to support workload spikes and growth.
-The Cisco Unified Computing System combines servers powered by the Intel Xeon processor E7 family with a virtualization-optimized, converged infrastructure to power Soarian Clinicals, providing industry-leading performance with a simplified architecture for reduced TCO.
