The secret to this surprising combination is the new 32nm Intel® microarchitecture. Featuring Intel® Intelligent Power Technology, it reduces energy costs over single-core servers by automatically shifting the CPU and memory into the lowest available power state, while delivering the performance you need.
Looking to move to the next level of virtualization? Intel® Virtualization Technology FlexMigration gives you the flexibility to virtualize different generations of Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers within the same virtualization pool; giving you the ability to migrate workloads to fewer servers at night to save energy. And if you're building a data center from the ground up, next-generation virtualization with Intel® Trusted Execution Technology also provides hardware-based resistance to malicious software attacks before the virtual machine boots.
When you add it all up, the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series delivers everything you need to reduce energy costs by up to 95 percent and realize ROI in 5 months.
