Slumberland Furniture needed to streamline its business and make its IT more efficient, so it decided to virtualize its environment and standardize on the Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series. The result? Slumberland was able to consolidate its servers by 20:1. Now it’s moving to Cisco UCS* platforms based on the Intel Xeon processor 5670 and expects to run 60 virtual machines on a single full-width physical blade.
“We’re putting 20 virtual machines on a half-width blade with the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series and expect the full-width UCS blades with the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series to triple that number,” explained Seth Mitchell, Infrastructure Team manager for Slumberland.
