Red Hat, Intel Create Secure, Reliable, and Scalable Performance
Solution Brief: Intel® Xeon® Processor E7 Family
The Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family and Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 6 combine to create an extremely flexible, secure, and cost-effective computing environment.
Building on a long history of collaborative engineering, Red Hat and Intel have enabled the latest generation of their products to deliver state-of-the-art performance, reliability, security, and efficiency for mission-critical solutions. Red Hat runs in the world’s largest businesses, including crucial infrastructure markets around the globe. Optimizing Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 6 for the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family extends the tradition.
Intel and Red Hat are driving tremendous innovation into a thriving ecosystem, delivering industry-leading technologies in integrated, hardened, and thoroughly tested enterprise solutions. IT organizations can scale and manage their most critical workloads at a far lower cost than they can using proprietary UNIX*/RISC architectures. At the same time, they can establish a powerful, open, and unified foundation for virtualization and cloud computing:
• The Intel Xeon processor E7 family is extending the limits of scalable performance, high availability, and security once again for Intel®-based servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This processor family provides more cores, cache, and system bandwidth than the Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series, along with additional features that enable even more robust reliability, security, and availability in mission-critical computing environments.
• Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is highly optimized for these new servers, providing scalable performance, high availability, and comprehensive enterprise functionality in a very secure operating environment. It represents the most comprehensive release in the history of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, providing thousands of enhancements to improve performance, scalability, reliability, security, and data center operational flexibility on physical and virtual servers as well as those in the cloud.
