Smart Server Investments for IT Cost Optimization

Smart Server Investments for IT Cost Optimization
With Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 product family-based solutions, you can recoup
investment costs in as little as eight months1,3. With up to 3.4X the performance1,2,4 of a four-year
old Intel® Xeon® processor-based platform, consolidating workloads onto modern servers helps
optimize hardware and software spending to help reduce maintenance, power, and cooling costs.
With the powerful ROI of the new Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v2 product family-based servers , you can:
• Streamline your current infrastructure by investing in more powerful servers and quickly
recover your investment.
• Enhance your IT infrastructure with added capacity to handle your growing
business needs.

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

8 month ROI claim estimated based on comparison between 2S Intel® Xeon® Processor X5570 and 2S Intel® Xeon® E5-2697 v2 based servers. Baseline platform: Intel server platform with two Intel® Xeon® Processor X5570,
144GB (18x8 PC3-8500R memory), RHEL 5.3, Oracle Database 11g R1 Standard Edition. New platform: Intel server platform with two Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2697 v2, 512GB (DDR3-1600 REG ECC), RHEL 6.4, Oracle
Database 11g R202 Standard Edition. Claim based on the estimated investment cost of $401,862 (server and OS acquisition cost) divided by the total estimated annual savings of OS support/Database support/power / cooling
/server and network maintenance of $672,691 multiplied by 12 months. All dollar figures are approximate. Performance and power comparisons are based on estimated OLTP database scores and platform power (Intel Corporation). Relative estimated performance per system gain compared to baseline was 3.15x while the relative platform power per system per day was 0.7x. Annual cost savings of $672,691 (from 100 servers “existing” to 32
servers “new”) including annual savings of: OS support of $88,332 (based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Premium (up to 1 guest) @ $1,299 support cost / year / server ), database support of $523,600 (based on Oracle 11g
Standard Edition Software Update License and Support @ $7,700/server ($3,850/skt), assume Oracle core factor=0.5, energy (power/cooling) costs of $40,359 (based on utility rate = $0.10/kWh, utilized 24/7, PUE 2.0. 2S Xeon®
5500-based servers $51,684/yr.; 2S Xeon® E5-2697 v2-based servers: $11,325/yr.(78% savings)), and server & network maintenance costs of $20,400 (based on $300/yr..(server and networking, Intel Estimate)).
