Servers, workstations, and stor- age solutions based on the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family deliver the best com- bination of performance, built-in capa- bilities, and cost-effectiveness to make data centers more flexible and efficient. From virtualization and cloud comput- ing solutions to design automation or real-time financial transactions, you'll be delighted by better than ever perfor- mance no matter what tasks you face. Your investment in industry standard technology from Intel --- combined with innovative solutions from other technol- ogy partners --- helps future-proof your data center with an infrastructure that grows right along with your organization. Scale innovative private cloud services Today's private clouds enable greater business agility and efficiency by deliv- ering innovative and scalable services that drive value back into the organi- zations they serve. Building and man- aging these services require systems that scale to meet your ever changing needs, while delivering solutions to the challenges IT managers face every day. Server and storage platforms based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family are built to be at the heart of today's data centers and enable powerful, versatile private cloud solutions. E5 processors: a new performance sweet spot The Intel® Xeon® processor E5 fam- ily support key cloud requirements that make your data center agile and more responsive to changing busi- ness needs. Maintaining industry leadership for power efficiency and continuing Intel® Xeon® processor per- formance advancements, the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family gives you additional performance when you need it for single- and multi-threaded applications, including increased floating-point performance for techni- cal computing workloads.¹ Intel® Xeon® processor E5-based platforms strengthen data protection with built-in, hardware-based capa- bilities that encourage pervasive data encryption with a signifcantly reduced performance tax.² Plus, to enhance cloud security and simplify migrations, you can pool resources and establish a hardware "root of trust" that enables dynamic migration of VMs from one trusted pool to another.³ These platforms also raise the bar for I/O efciency. The new Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family supports Intel® Integrated I/O which reduces network and storage latency associated with vir- tualized workloads. It also supports the latest PCI Express* 3.0 specifcation to handle bandwidth-hungry applications.4 Intel® gives you more built-in power management optimization capabili- ties. Intel® Power Tuning technology and Intel® Intelligent Power Technology help optimize efciency and reduce costs by allocating and dynamically balancing power at the rack, row, and data center level. The Intel® Xeon® E5 Family Versatile processors for today's flexible, efficient data centers. ¹Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. • ²Source: Testing with Oracle Database Enterprise Edition* 126.96.36.199 with Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) AES-256 shows as much as a 10x speedup when inserting one million rows 30 times into an empty table on the Intel® Xeon® processor X5680 (3.33GHz, 36MB RAM) using Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) routines, compared to the Intel® Xeon® processor X5560 (2.93 GHz, 36 MB RAM) without Intel IPP. • ³No computer system can provide absolute security under all conditions. Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) requires a computer with Intel® Virtualization Technology, an Intel TXT-enabled processor, chipset, BIOS, Authenticated Code Modules, and an Intel TXT-compatible measured launched environment (MLE). Intel TXT also requires the system to contain a TPM v1.s.

Improvement compares Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family (230 ns) vs. Intel Xeon processor 5500 series (340 ns). Baseline Configuration: An Intel system with two Intel® Xeon processor E5520 (2.26GHz, 4C), 12GB memory @ 1333, C-States disabled, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology disabled, SMT disabled, Rubicon* PCIe* 2.0 x8. New Configuration: Meridian system with two Intel® Xeon processor E5-2665 (C0 stepping, 2.4GHz, 8C), 32GB memory @1600 MHz, C-States enabled, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology enabled. The measurements were taken with a LeCroy* PCIe* protocol analyzer using Intel internal Rubicon (PCIe* 2.0) and Florin (PCIe* 3.0) test cards running under Windows* 2008 R2 with SP1. Intel® E5 family processors help future-proof your data center. 16
