Computer technology solutions provider Intel Malaysia has announced a new family of processors to help the cloud manage 15 billion connected devices, said the company.
The new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 will help servers scale to meet the demands of an increasingly connected world, and delivers the best data centre performance per watt, said Intel South East Asia director Uday Martin, speaking recently in Kuala Lumpur.
"The growth in cloud computing and connected devices is transforming the way businesses benefit from IT products and services," said Marty. "For businesses to capitalise on these innovations, the industry must address unprecedented demand for efficient, secure and high-performing data centre 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," he said. "The key requirements to enable IT to scale are performance, energy efficiency, I/O [input/output] bandwidth and security. 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 centre powering servers, storage and communication systems."
Marty said supporting up to eight cores per processor and up to 768GB [gigabytes] of system memory, the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family increases performance by up to 80 percent. "In addition, built-in technologies such as Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel Virtualisation 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 1510 new dual socket x86 world records."
