High-Powered Business Results With Lower Power Costs: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and the Intel Xeon Processor 5500 Series
Enterprise data centers meet many needs, from email systems to line-of-business processes, high-performance real-time applications, and SOA initiatives. Deployment models range from stand-alone servers to clusters, even grids, and consolidated, virtualized environments. To fully control energy costs, IT needs the ability to maximize energy efficiency at all times, with any deployment model and across all workloads. Windows Server 2008 running on the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series is the first platform to deliver automated power management that scales energy usage in real time to fit workload performance needs and system and data center power and thermal policies.
