Red Hat and Intel: Moving Intelligence Forward
Put state-of-the-art intelligence to work on the challenges of tomorrow by running Red Hat Enterprise Linux on the latest Intel® Xeon® processors. Red Hat's open source, commercial-strength innovation delivers optimized results for performance, energy efficiency, and advanced virtualization on Intel platforms, all at an affordable price.
Modern business must deliver outstanding results every day, with an IT infrastructure that can meet extreme demands while staying nimble enough for the changes around the corner. Running Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Intel server platforms brings together the brilliance of open source software with standards-based hardware to meet those challenges. What's more, this combination delivers the performance, stability, and support that come from a commercial relationship that stretches back many years.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 is highly optimized for the Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series, creating excellent results:
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 takes advantage of the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series to adapt throughput to the workload, delivering a greater than 2x performance compared to predecessors.
Virtualization performance and efficiency.
- Taking advantage of next-generation Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT), Red Hat Enterprise Linux delivers high consolidation ratios and virtualized performance.
Automated energy efficiency.
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux uses Intel® Intelligent Power Technology to support low-latency changes among power states and to lower power consumption during off-peak times.
