The explosive growth of unstructured data puts new demands on network and storage infrastructure and challenges your ability to deliver services such as cloud computing. IT needs to respond rapidly to new and changing business demands, scale quickly and appropriately to fluctuating workloads, accommodate business expansions, and protect your data from cybercriminals—all while keeping costs down.
The new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 and E5-1600 v2 product families are at the heart of an agile, efficient data center that meets your diverse needs. Now you can deploy a more secure private cloud, quickly crunch through big data, and get the most out of your data center with greater energy efficiency.
Space and power consumption represent the two biggest concerns for data centers—both yours and those managed by your public cloud provider. By combining Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 and E5-1600 v2 product family–based servers with other energy-efficient data technologies, you can increase data center efficiency, cut power bills and energy consumption, and reduce space needs.
Compared to the previous generation, the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and E5-1600 v2 deliver:
You can also add up to 40 percent1,5 more servers per rack with Intel® Node Manager. Move to Intel® 10GbE Network Connection and Intel® SSDs to further reduce power.
Whether you are using a private, public, or hybrid cloud environment, trust and confidence in the security of your sensitive information is critical to your reputation and your bottom line.
It is no wonder Intel Xeon processor E5 family–based servers are at the heart of public cloud providers’ data centers.
A balanced infrastructure is essential for big data analytics and cloud. In fact, you can create a more cost-effective model for running data-intensive workloads by utilizing your private cloud to implement analysis of big data in-house and augmenting internal resources with public cloud services. Predictive analytics is a good example of how big data can help you stay ahead of your competition, identify new opportunities, and gain valuable insights.
See how you can gain insights near-real-time by combining the use of Intel Xeon processor E5 family–based servers, Intel SSDs, Intel 10GbE Network Connection, and the Intel® Distribution for Apache Hadoop* software.

1. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information go to http://www.intel.com/performance. Results have been measured by Intel based on software, benchmark or other data of third parties and are provided for informational purposes only. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance. Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party data referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the websites of the referenced third parties or other sources to confirm whether the referenced data is accurate and reflects performance of systems available for purchase.
