Cloud and Virtualization with New Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

Drive innovation across your enterprise with software-defined infrastructure (SDI) that supports agile cloud architecture and efficient management of legacy workloads. SDI, which enables policy-based, automated orchestration of on-demand IT services, allows your business to evolve into a true cloud-ready enterprise. Bring your business’s best ideas to life by transforming big data and real-time analytics into new business opportunities while ensuring the reliability and uptime of the most business-critical services with 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor .

Server virtualization is the process of using a system to run multiple workloads within a virtualized environment. Workload virtualization exists across many datacenter segments including business processing, decision support, application development, industrial research and development, web infrastructure, IT infrastructure, and collaborative workloads.

Server Consolidation with SPECvirt*_sc2013

SPECvirt_sc2013 utilizes several SPEC* workloads representing applications that are common targets of virtualization and server consolidation. These workloads are modified versions of SPECweb* 2005, SPECjAppServer* 2004, SPECmail* 2008, and SPEC CPU* 2006 that match a typical server consolidation scenario of CPU resource requirements, memory, disk I/O, and network utilization for each workload. Scaling is achieved by running additional sets of virtual machines, called "tiles", until overall throughput reaches a peak. All VMs must continue to meet the required quality of service (QoS) criteria.

Server Consolidation with Live Migration Using VMmark* 3.1

The VMware VMmark* 3.1 benchmark incorporates popular workloads from multi-tier application categories most commonly represented in customer data centers and measure the performance of multi-host virtual environments. VMmark 3.1 is a virtualization benchmark that compares different virtualization and hardware platforms, consists of multiple hosts, and offers multi-tier workloads, and infrastructure operations. It features a tile-based scheme for measuring the scalability of 19 VMs concurrently executing diverse workloads and provides a consistent methodology that captures both the overall scalability and individual application performance. Results available include performance, server power, and server and storage power.
