• Rock-solid support for mission-critical computing needs
rame-inspired high availability eatures, plus dial-up control o servicelevels through policy-based resource guarantees, enhanced healthmonitoring and diagnostics, and automated virtual machine ailover
across LANs and WANs.
• A stronger foundation for security
with virtualization-aware application
and data protection, the ability to restrict sensitive data and applications
to trusted pools o virtualized inrastructure, and accelerated encryption,
which enables the pervasive use o encryption to protect valuable data.
• Scalable data center management

enjoy near-natiVe PerforMancein a Virtualized enVironMent
The Intel Xeon processor E7 amily oers world-record virtualizationperormance while delivering higher virtual machine densities thanany other industry-standard server in the market today.
It includesnext-generation Intel
VT), whichprovides comprehensive hardware assists or core virtualizationunctions. In tandem with sotware optimizations in VMware vSphere,Intel VT dramatically reduces virtualization overhead and enables near-native perormance, even or I/O-intensive applications, such as large
databases and transactional applications.This enterprise-class virtualization platorm provides the scalability youneed to host heavy workloads. With VMware vSphere 5.0, the hypervisorcan be congured with up to thirty two virtual CPUs and 1 TB o memo-ry, and it can support up to 40 Gbps o network bandwidth and exceed300,000 I/O operations per second. All but the most extreme enterpriseworkloads can be successully virtualized. I you are moving applicationsrom older dedicated servers, you can expect to see dramatic improve-ments in application throughput and response times.
eStabliSh Stronger Securityin Virtualized enVironMentS
Intel and VMware provide a strong oundation or protecting data, applica-
tions, and inrastructure in virtualized environments.
Trusted Execution Technology
provides assurancethat physical servers and virtual machines boot only into cryptographi-
cally veried “known good states” to prevent the insertion o malware
during or prior to launch. The inormation provided by Intel TXT can also
be used to monitor and assess the security environment in real time, so
customers can establish and maintain “trusted resource pools.” With thisoundation, sensitive and business-critical workloads can be deployed –
and migrated – with condence.
Advanced Encryption Standard-New Instructions
accelerates the most compute-intensive steps o AES algorithms to
signicantly reduce the perormance penalties o encryption. Withthis support, businesses can implement encryption pervasively to
protect valuable business data more eectively,
without sacricingperormance or driving up costs.
• Intel VT
helps to protect the integrity and condentiality o data and
applications by helping to maintain strong isolation among workloadsrunning on shared inrastructure.
• The VMware vShield
amily o products builds on this oundation byproviding virtualization-aware application and data security that helpsto improve visibility and control across the entire virtualized inrastruc-ture. These solutions integrate seamlessly with existing enterprise ITsecurity measures, including anti-virus and anti-malware applications,to enable better-than-physical security with reduced complexity.
Magnify your coSt SaVingS throughhigher conSolidation ratioS
The Intel Xeon processor E7 amily provides the scalable capac-ity needed to consolidate large numbers o applications per server,with more cores, more cache, and more memory and I/O capacitythan the previous-generation Intel
processor 7500 series.These processors also support Intel
Turbo Boost Technology.
The rst doubles the number o
execution threads per server and the second delivers higher peror-
mance on demand or peak workloads.
A single our-socket server provides enormous capacity or consolida-
tion, with up to 40 cores, 80 execution threads, and 1 TB o memory.
Compared with widely deployed systems based on single-core
processors, these newer servers can support:
• Up to 29:1 server consolidation performance• Estimated payback in as little as 8 months
Businesses can take their consolidation ratios even higher with eight-socket servers that provide up to 80 cores, 160 threads and 2 TBo memory. VMware vSphere 5.0 enables ull utilization o theseresources to support truly massive workload consolidation. It alsoprovides industry-leading support or memory compression andmemory over-commit, which help to eliminate memory bottlenecksto urther increase virtual machine densities.
