Virtualization with Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-8800/4800 v4 Product Families

Bring your business’s best ideas to life by transforming big data and real-time analytics into new business opportunities while ensuring the reliability and uptime of the most business-critical services with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800 v4 product families.

Server virtualization is the process of using a system to run multiple workloads within a virtualized environment.  Workload virtualization exists across many datacenter segments including business processing, decision support, application development, industrial research and development, web infrastructure, IT infrastructure, and collaborative workloads.

Server Consolidation with SPECvirt*_sc2013

SPECvirt*_sc2013 utilizes several SPEC* workloads representing applications that are common targets of virtualization and server consolidation. These workloads are modified versions of SPECweb*2005, SPECjAppServer*2004, SPECmail*2008, and SPEC CPU*2006 that match a typical server consolidation scenario of CPU resource requirements, memory, disk I/O, and network utilization for each workload. Scaling is achieved by running additional sets of virtual machines, called "tiles", until overall throughput reaches a peak. All VMs must continue to meet required quality of service (QoS) criteria.

Product and Performance Information

1

Software 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. For more information, go to www.intel.co.za/benchmarks.

2

Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.

3

Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/za/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

4

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel.

Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel® microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
