Breakthrough Capability and Value for Mission-Critical Computing
Paper: Executive Summary
“Red Hat Enterprise Linux running on Intel Xeon processor based servers is truly a rock-solid platform. We absolutely trust Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Intel with our most mission-critical systems.” —Brad Massey, director, IT Support Services, Odyssey Logistics & Technology
Intel and Red Hat have been supporting mission-critical computing environments for years, helping companies achieve the highest levels of performance and reliability, while increasing their vendor options and optimizing their cost models. Many of the world’s largest businesses rely on the combined platform to support core business applications, including high-volume financial trading companies with their extreme performance, security and uptime requirements. Recent breakthroughs from Intel and Red Hat take the mission-critical capability of the combined platform to new heights.
• The Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family delivers top-of-the-line performance in large, highly resilient server configurations designed to support today’s most demanding enterprise workloads. These processors extend the world-record performance of the previous generation Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series by as much as 40 percent They also support up to twice the memory capacity and extend the mainframe-inspired features of the previous generation to enable even more robust reliability, security, and availability for mission-critical computing applications.
• Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 6 is highly optimized for these new servers, providing scalable performance, high availability, and comprehensive enterprise functionality in one of the world’s most secure operating environments. It represents the most comprehensive release in the history of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, providing thousands of enhancements to improve performance, scalability, reliability, security, and data-center operational flexibility in bare-metal, virtualized, and cloud deployments.
