Virtualization with the Intel® Xeon® Processor 5500 Series: A Proof of Concept
Intel IT, together with Intel's Digital Enterprise Group, End User Platform Integration, and Intel’s Software and Services Group, conducted proof-of-concept testing and total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis to assess the virtualization capabilities of Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series. Our results show that two-socket servers based on Intel Xeon processor 5500 series can offer substantial improvements in virtualization performance and energy efficiency, resulting in lower TCO per virtual machine (VM) in multiple Intel IT virtualization deployment scenarios.
