ABSTRACT:
Software acquisition and licensing costs are the largest drivers of TCO for server deployment in most IT shops. This white paper compares the performance of low- and high-end processors in enterprise and technical computing environments. You'll learn why servers that run on high-end processors deliver significantly better server performance and require only a minimal increase in cost.

This white paper includes a real-life example to demonstrates how standardizing on high-end processors enables you maximize business value based across the following areas:
  • Hardware platforms costs
  • Software-OS, applications, middleware, security products, backup and restore, and SAN connectivity costs
  • Data center-power, cooling, hosting, and connectivity costs
