How Mission-Critical Database Workloads Perform When Virtualized With Intel Xeon Processor 7500 Series-Based Servers and VMware vSphere
The volume and complexity of business data continue to grow at an accelerated pace. As the amount of data grows and organizations and customers become more reliant on that data, poor performance and downtime can result in severe costs: low transaction volume, dissatisfied customers, loss of worker productivity, and more. Today's database platforms must combine high performance with reliability to serve the needs of information-enabled organizations. Servers equipped with the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series and VMware vSphere 4 provide a powerful platform for today's data-driven organizations. This joint platform can enable organizations to reliably power the wide range of enterprise applications while adding advanced capabilities to help improve availability.
