Executive Summary

To drive business decisions in the data center, Intel IT created a performance-driven methodology to compare the operating costs of virtualization platforms. We approximate the total cost of ownership (TCO) of each platform by measuring workload performance, platform performance, and power consumption. Using this methodology, we demonstrated a greater than 50 percent cost reduction with the Dual-Core Intel? Xeon? processor 5150 running at 2.66 GHz as compared with its predecessor, the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor running at 2.8 GHz.
