Intel® Xeon® Processor 5500 Series: Animated Product Brief“Today is the greatest leap in performance in the history of server processors,” according to Pat Gelsinger, Senior Vice President, General Manager, Digital Enterprise Group, Intel Corporation. Listen as he introduces the new world record performance of the Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series at the Santa Clara launch event.In many organizations, IT infrastructure has begun to constrain business efficiency and growth. For the past decade, IT has rapidly added low-cost hardware to accommodate business growth. But with data centers now stretched to capacity in terms of power, cooling, and floor space, IT infrastructure is actually limiting IT from investing in innovation. IDC estimates that for every dollar IT spends on hardware to support new users and applications, they spend another 50 cents on power and cooling for existing hardware.A Giant Leap for IT and Business CapabilitiesAs data centers reach the upper limits of their power and cooling capacity, efficiency has become the focus of extending the life of existing data centers and designing new ones. As part of these efforts, IT needs to refresh existing infrastructure with servers that deliver more performance and scalability, more efficiently. The Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series provides a foundation for IT management to refresh existing or design new data centers to achieve greater performance while using less energy and space, and dramatically reducing operating costs. This groundbreaking intelligent server technology features:• Intelligent Performance that automatically optimizes performance to fit business and application requirements.• Automated Energy Efficiency that scales energy usage to the workload to achieve optimal performance/watt and reduce operating costs.• Flexible virtualization that offers best-in-class performance and manageability in virtualized environments to improve IT infrastructure and reduce costs.View the full Intel® Xeon® Processor 5500 Series Animated Product Brief.
