Uday Marty, Director, Intel South East Asia says that, "The growth in cloud computing and connected devices is transforming the way businesses benefit from IT products and services. For businesses to capitalise on these innovations, the industry must address unprecedented demand for efficient, secure and high-performing data centre infrastructure.

The Intel Xeon processor E5-26Q0 product family is designed to address these challenges by offering unparalleled, balanced performance across computer, storage and network, while reducing operating costs."

What you get with the new Xeon E5 is up to an octuple-core processor (eight cores) and 768GB of system memory. Intel is also claiming an 80-percent increase in processor over the previous generation. It also comes in with built-in technologies such as Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel Virtualisation Technology for extra flexibility in increasing the performance of IT infrastructure dynamically.

These performances do not come at the expense of higher power consumption either. The Intel Xeon E5 2600 family improves energy efficiency by 50-percent compared to its predecessor. Support tools to monitor and control power usage such as Intel Node Manager and Intel Data Center Manager provide accurate, real-time power and thermal data management consoles.

The new processor family will also come with an extra level of protection to reduce the infrastructures' exposure to malicious attacks. The Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instruction allows systems to quickly encrypt and decrypt data running overa range of applications and transactions; while Intel Trusted Execution Technology creates a trusted foundation that filters the system before the operating system evenboots up. These features can help IT users protect their data centres against attacks.
