PRESS RELEASE

Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v2

Intel has introduced a set of versatile processors that promises to redefine the server, storage and networking infrastructure found in data centres. Previously code-named ‘Ivy Bridge-EP’, the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v2 product family is based on Intel’s 22-nanometre process technology, contributing to energy efficiency improvements of up to 45 per cent when compared to the previous generation. The processor family also features up to 12 cores and delivers up to 50 per cent more performance across variety of compute intensive workloads.

Today, network configuration requires manual set-up by skilled IT staff and it may take up to two or three weeks to deploy required networking resources to support new applications and services. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family accelerates efficient processing of network workloads commonly handled by expensive and proprietary offload engines and accelerators found in networking appliances.
