Consider 4-Socket Servers Instead of 2-Socket Servers to Reduce Your TCO by up to 70%

When considering server purchases, it may be time to consider adding additional headroom for growth in your space- and/or power-constrained data center. There are many factors to consider when making the buying decision, but if performance is key for future growth and spikes, it may make sense to step up to the new 4-socket servers based on Intel® Xeon® processors E5-4600 product family.

For this comparison, we assumed 135 servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5606 and 100 servers based on the Intel Xeon processor E5-2609 which equates to similar performance of 32 servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4607. Fewer servers deployed results in a lower total server hardware acquisition cost and thus fewer OS licenses required to purchase and maintain. Fewer servers and improved density also translates to lower data center power and cooling costs as well as less server maintenance required. All of this culminates in an estimated 4-year total cost of ownership (TCO) advantage up to 70%.

Different comparisons in system configuration and performance benchmarks may yield different results. Other than the obvious change in processor SKU, one change in hardware configuration that may impact the TCO advantage is memory population. The larger the memory footprint assumed, the higher the impact on the total server acquisition cost and the larger the difference between the memory subsystem cost for both 2S and 4S platforms. This is because the Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 product family has twice the memory capacity and thus can optimize the memory subsystem cost compared to the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family, allowing for use of lower-cost DIMM densities. Based on January 2012 pricing, the memory capacity at which systems based on the Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 product family see an advantage over the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family is 256 GB and above. (Of course, memory pricing changes regularly, so customers should perform their own analysis to determine their TCO advantages.)

Results have been estimated based on internal Intel analysis and are provided for informational purposes only. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance.

  • Up to 70% 4-year TCO savings based on Intel estimates by comparing 135 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5606-based servers to 30 4S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4607-based servers that provide equivalent total server performance using Intel estimates of SPECint*_rate_base2006. The 4-year TCO savings based on:
  • Intel estimate of 105 fewer servers in the data center by purchasing the 4S servers results in:
  • server acquisition cost of $1,067,715 (135 servers at $7,909 each) for the 2S vs. $324,736 (30 servers at $10,824 each),
  • server maintenance savings of $51,500,
  • infrastructure (network, rack/floor space and utility) savings of $163,710,
  • and OS license savings of $411,897.
  • Up to 43% 4-year TCO savings based on Intel estimates by comparing 100 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2609-based servers to 30 4S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4607-based servers that provide equivalent total server performance using Intel estimates of SPECint*_rate_base2006. The 4-year TCO savings based on:
  • Intel estimate of 70 fewer servers in the data center by purchasing the 4S servers results in:
  • server acquisition cost of $463,400 (100 servers at $4,634 each) for the 2S vs. $324,736 (30 servers at $10,824 each),
  • server maintenance savings of $34,000,
  • infrastructure (network, rack/floor space and utility) savings of $88,941,
  • and OS license savings of $271,932.

Produkt- och prestandainformation

open

1. Programvara och arbetsbelastningar som används i prestandatest kan ha anpassats särskilt för att användas på Intel® mikroprocessorer. Prestandatest som SYSmark* och MobileMark* mäts med hjälp av särskilda datorsystem, -komponenter, -program, -åtgärder och -funktioner. Om någon av de här faktorerna ändras kan även utfallet av testet ändras. Du bör jämföra med annan information och andra prestandatest för att får en helt rättvisande bild inför köpet, inklusive prestandan för den tänkta produkten i kombination med andra produkter.

2. Den relativa prestandan för varje test beräknas genom att testresultatet tas från den först testade datorn som utgångspunkt med 1 poäng. Den relativa prestandan för alla därefter testade datorer beräknas genom att testresultatet delas med resultatet för den först testade datorn. På så sätt ser man hur mycket bättre än den först testade datorn varje ny testad dator är.

3. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology: Se Processor Spec Finder på http://ark.intel.com eller kontakta din Intel-representant för mer information.

4. Ett system med Intel® Turbo Boost Technology krävs. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology och Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 finns endast på utvalda Intel® processorer. Fråga tillverkaren av din dator. Prestandan varierar beroende på maskinvara, programvara och systemkonfiguration. För mer information, gå till www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/turbo-boost/turbo-boost-technology.html.

5. För Intel® Hyperthreading Technology (Intel® HTT) krävs det en dator med processor, chipset, BIOS och operativsystem som har kapacitet för tekniken. Prestandan varierar beroende på vilken maskinvara och programvara som används. För mer information inklusive detaljer om vilka processorer som har stöd för Intel HT Technology, gå till www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/hyper-threading/hyper-threading-technology.html.
