Processor-based Server Guide
Every IT organization has to satisfy a unique mix of server purchase requirements (high performance, reliability, technology headroom, and so on), while working within a variety of data center constraints, including budget, floor space, power/thermal capacity, and many others. Your servers need to fit your data center deployment strategy (scale up vs. scale out), while delivering optimized support across a broad range of business, technical, and infrastructure applications. They must also provide a flexible foundation for current and future virtualization and cloud computing strategies, so you can simplify and consolidate your infrastructure, drive down your energy and operating costs, and adopt new usage models – even as you continue to add new capabilities and evolve your IT services strategies to grow your business.
Whatever your data center requirements may be, you can take comfort in knowing that Intel, the world leader in server technology, has server platforms based on advanced, proven technology to help your IT department deliver more efficient, dependable, and responsive solutions for business.
