Maximizing flexibility and utilization of VMs to deliver cost-effective solutions is vital for creating a holistic multi-cloud strategy. The first step is determining your business needs for performance, security, integration, and data. This white paper reveals how you can build out virtualized infrastructures to ensure a seamless platform for your business across public and private cloud environments.

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 complete information visit https://www.intel.com.au/benchmarks.
Performance results are based on testing as of the date indicated in the configuration details and may not reflect all publicly available security updates. See configuration disclosure for details. No product or component can be absolutely secure.
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, SSE3, and SSSE3 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. Notice Revision #20110804.
Cost reduction scenarios described are intended as examples of how a given Intel®-based product, in the specified circumstances and configurations, may affect future costs and provide cost savings. Circumstances will vary. Intel does not guarantee any costs or cost reduction.
Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) provides higher throughput to certain processor operations. Due to varying processor power characteristics, utilizing AVX instructions may cause a) some parts to operate at less than the rated frequency and b) some parts with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 to not achieve any or maximum turbo frequencies. Performance varies depending on hardware, software, and system configuration and you can learn more at https://www.intel.com.au/go/turbo.
Intel does not control or audit third-party benchmark data or the web sites referenced in this document. You should visit the referenced web site and confirm whether referenced data are accurate.

Up to 59% TCO savings with Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor compared to 5-year old system. Cost reduction scenarios described are intended as examples of how a given Intel®-based product, in the specified circumstances and configurations, may affect future costs and provide cost savings. Circumstances will vary. Intel does not guarantee any costs or cost reduction. Example based on estimates as of March 2019 of equivalent rack performance over 4-year operation on virtualization workload running VMware vSphere Enterprise Plus on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server* and comparing 20 installed 2-socket servers with Intel® Xeon® E5-2697 processor v2 (formerly “IvyBridge”) at a total cost of $796,563 [Per server cost $39.8K: acquisition=13.7K, infrastructure and utility=4.2K, os & software=12.2K, maintenance=9.7K ] vs. 6 new Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8280 processor (costs based on Platinum 8180 assumptions) at a total cost of $325,805 [Per server cost $54.3K: acquisition=28.9K, infrastructure and utility=3.5K, os & software=12.2K, maintenance=9.7K]. Assumptions based on https://xeonprocessoradvisor.intel.com, assumptions as of Feb 13, 2019.
