Emulex, Oracle and Intel: Maximizing performance while minimizing energy costs
Emulex, Oracle and Intel, as part of a strategic alliance, have been working together—from design and architecture through implementation— to ensure that our mutual solutions are optimized to unleash the power and capabilities of current and future Intel Xeon processors at the time of launch. Our collaboration has contributed to how Oracle Sun servers and the Intel Nehalem Microarchitecture work together with compelling results.
Oracle's Sun servers based on Intel Nehalem-based Xeon processors deliver maximum performance, efficiency and scale in the data center while supporting multiple operating systems like the Solaris OS, Linux and Windows and a variety of virtualization solutions including Sun xVM Ops Center, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Solaris Containers, which allows integrated virtualization with low overhead, at no cost.
Together, Emulex, Oracle and Intel are ensuring that our complimentary solutions provide businesses with powerful innovations for increased performance, higher energy efficiency, better virtualization and reliability – all to provide maximum datacenter efficiency to enable improved business efficiency and reduced costs. Emulex 8Gb/s and 4Gb/s Fibre Channel solutions are qualified and resold under the Oracle Sun StorageTek brand on the Oracle Sun servers using the Intel Nehalem-based Xeon processors.
