Expedient Communications has added infrastructure as a service (IaaS) private cloud computing to its managed services portfolio, choosing the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series as a foundation for scalable, secure, and efficient cloud services. Upgrading from servers based on the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series, Expedient’s IT leaders say they gained a 100 percent increase in compute capacity and density. They also cut their watts consumed per GB of memory, a key indicator for energy efficiency in the cloud, by almost 50 percent.

“When we moved from the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series to the 5600 series, we essentially doubled our compute load and density per pod,” explained Alex Rodriguez, vice president of systems engineering and product development for Expedient Communications.  “When we bring in a pod based on the Intel Xeon processor E5 family, we expect to see a 130 percent increase.”
