Product Description
The consolidation of dedicated servers and the use of efficient virtualized run environments provide measurable benefits and new flexibility regarding IT operations management. Virtual servers can thus be moved to other servers during ongoing operations and enable maintenance work to the hardware platform without any operational interruption. Active virtual servers can be flexibly moved to systems with higher performance for operation during peak-load times. Test systems can be very easily converted via live migration to production systems. Virtualized environments are the top application for RX300 systems and their new multicore Xeon® CPUs from Intel®. In this situation, several operating systems plus the installed applications have to run simultaneously on one and the same physical hardware. RX300 S5 provides all the platform features required for efficient virtualization: - High, scalable I/O performances with PCIe Gen2, x4/x8 Turbo mode, up to 7 free PCIe slots - so that disk I/O and network/SAN accesses do not become a bottleneck! - The generosity of the maximum 144 GB main memory for a high-performance determinable, optimal sizing of the virtual server environment so that the main memory does not become the point of contention for the virtualization software as well as the consolidated applications and the operating systems. - Top performance with state-of-the-art Intel® Xeon® CPUs as well as double I/O performance with PCIe Gen2.0 - so that every virtual system can work at a higher performance level than before. - The reliability of a premium server system in a space-saving 2 U design so that the cost benefits arising from standardized rack servers and virtual systems do not become a survival risk!The reliability of the RX300 server platform also leaves nothing to be desired in other application areas, e.g. as database servers or application servers for business-critical processes.
