Intel unveiled the record-breaking Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family to users in the UAE. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family is built to scale to meet the demands of an increasingly connected MENA region.
These new processors deliver leadership performance, best data center performance per watt, breakthrough I/O innovation and trusted hardware security features to enable IT to scale.
These processors are not only at the heart of servers and workstations, but will also power the next generation of storage and communication systems from leading vendors around the world.
Forecasts call for 15 billion connected devices and over 3 billion connected users by 2015. The amount of global data center IP traffic is expected to grow by 33 percent annually through 2015, surpassing 4.8 zetabytes per year, more than 3 times the amount in 2011.
At these levels, each connected user will generate more than 4GB of data traffic every day – the equivalent of a 4-hour HD movie, and this will increase the amount of data that needs to be stored by almost 50 percent per year, in order to scale to meet this growth, the worldwide number of cloud servers is expected to more than triple by 2015.
“The growth in cloud computing and connected devices is transforming the way businesses benefit from IT products and services,” said Nassir Nauthoa, General Manager for Intel GCC. “For businesses to capitalize on these innovations, the industry must address unprecedented demand for efficient, secure and high-performing data-center infrastructure. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family is designed to address these challenges by offering unparalleled, balanced performance across compute, storage and network, while reducing operating costs.”
The key requirements to enable IT to scale are performance, energy efficiency, I/O bandwidth and security, as AMEinfo stated.
With the best combination of performance, built-in capabilities and cost-effectiveness, the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product families are designed to address these requirements, and become the heart of the next-generation data center powering servers, storage and communication systems.
The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family increases performance by up to 80 percent compared to the previous-generation Intel Xeon processor 5600 series.
The family also supports Intel Advanced Vector Extension (Intel AVX) that increases the performance on compute-intensive applications such as financial analysis, media content creation and high performance computing up to 2 times.
Additional built-in technologies such as Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel Virtualization Technology provide IT with flexible capabilities to increase the performance of their infrastructure dynamically.
These performance advances have led the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family to capture 15 new dual socket x86 world records.
