Optimize Your Infrastructure with the Intel Xeon D


In case you missed it, we just celebrated the launch of the Intel Xeon processor D product family. And if you did miss it, I’m here to give you all the highlights of an exciting leap in enterprise infrastructure optimization, from the data center to the network edge.

The Xeon D family is Intel’s 3rd generation 64-bit SoC and the first based on Intel Xeon processor technology. The Xeon D weaves the performance of Xeon processors into a dense, lower-power system-on-a-chip (SoC). It suits a unique variety of use cases, ranging from dynamic web serving and dedicated web hosting, to warm storage and network routing.

Secure, Scalable Storage

The Xeon D’s low energy consumption and extremely high performance make it a cost-effective, scalable solution for organizations looking to take their data centers to the next level. By dramatically reducing heat and electricity usage, this product family offers an unrivaled low-powered solution for enterprise server environments.

Server systems powered by the new Intel Xeon D processors offer fault-tolerant, stable storage platforms that lend themselves well to the scalability and speed clients demand. Large enterprises looking for low-power, high-density server processors for their data stacks should keep an eye on the Xeon D family, as these processors offer solid performance per watt and unparalleled security baked right into the hardware.

Cloud Service Providers Take Note


1&1, Europe’s leading web hosting service, recently analyzed Intel’s new Xeon D processor family for different cloud workloads such as storage or dedicated hosting. The best-in-class service utilizes these new processors to offer both savings and stability to their customers. According to 1&1’s Hans Nijholt, the technology has a serious advantage for enterprise storage companies as well as SMB customers looking to pass on savings to customers:

“The [Xeon D’s] energy consumption is extremely low and it gives us very high performance. Xeon D has a 4x improvement in memory and lets us get a much higher density in our data center, combined with the best price/performance ratio you can offer.”

If you’re looking to bypass existing physical limitations, sometimes it’s simply a matter of taking a step back, examining your environment, and understanding that you have options outside expansion. The Xeon D is ready to change your business — are you ready for the transformation?

We’ll be revealing more about the Xeon D at World Hosting Days; join us as we continue to unveil the exciting capabilities of our latest addition to the Xeon family!
