Intel Xeon Processor E7 Family: Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability
Today's businesses increasingly depend on Intel Xeon-based servers to run data-intensive and mission-critical applications. Server Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS) are crucial issues for modern enterprise IT shops that deliver mission critical applications and services, as application delivery failures can be extremely costly per hour of system downtime. Furthermore, the likelihood of such failures increases statistically with the size of the servers, data and memory required for these deployments. The Intel Xeon processor E7 family offers an extensive and robust set of RAS features in silicon to provide error detection, correction, containment, and recovery in all processors, memory, and I/O data paths.
