Virtualization Performance of SAP ERP Solutions on the Intel® Xeon® Processor 7500 Series with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and Hyper-V
Running large-scale enterprise solutions in a data center - especially mission-critical solutions such as ERP - requires significant amounts of hardware infrastructure. It requires servers for testing new programs and functionality, servers to verify and implement upgrades and patches, and others to run production applications. By running supported SAP solutions in a virtualized environment, all these needs can be met with fewer servers, maximizing the benefits of your investment in SAP software solutions while lowering data center costs and increasing business agility.
Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series-based servers offer new value for virtualizing SAP solutions with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V. They also adapt intelligently to changing workloads to deliver optimized performance per watt. Four-socket and larger servers based on this new processor family are ideal for virtualizing and consolidating heavy ERP workloads to reduce costs and increase agility without compromising performance.
