Salesforce Collaborates to Optimize Hardware

Intel and Salesforce worked together to build a fine-tuned hardware platform for production workloads.

At a glance:

  • Salesforce, a global customer relationship management leader, empowers companies of every size and industry to digitally transform and create a 360° view of their customers.

  • Salesforce infrastructure teams worked with Intel to build a proxy workload with characteristics that match its production workload behavior. This proxy workload helped Salesforce to choose next-generation hardware such as 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors for the company’s production environment.



Executive Summary

Collaboration between Intel and Salesforce engineers is enabling Salesforce to better understand their workloads and computing environment. With an understanding based on a proxy workload, along with the latest Intel® technologies, Salesforce can choose an optimized combination of hardware and software. Doing so results in reliable, scalable, and workload-optimized workload performance that can meet or exceed customer expectations.
