They are easy to set up and manage, and have features that provide trouble-free operation to help ensure that your operational needs are met at every stage of your business growth.
    Effective Management of Business Data
  • Compared to a desktop computer, the Intel Xeon processor E3 is engineered and validated to run 24/7. It allows you to protect, manage, process and distribute your business data more effectively and reliably. With the performance and capacity of an Intel Xeon processor-based server, you can:
    • Establish a centralized database for your customer, product and financial information. You'll be able to manage vital data more efficiently and effectively to ensure it is accurate, up-to-date, protected and accessible to all authorized users anytime, anywhere.
    • Create an in-house network for e-mails, shared calendars, conferencing and online document sharing to improve communication and collaboration among your employees.
    • Host a corporate website or improve performance and uptime for your existing website, so you can connect more effectively with your customers and extend your business reach.
    • Take advantage of cloud services to extend your IT capabilities, while keeping sensitive data and applications on-premise, where you have the necessary control to ensure performance, reliability, security and compliance.
    Business Protection
  • Advanced reliability and security features help to keep your data and business safe.
    • 24/7 Dependability. Intel Xeon processor E3 v2 server is designed for continuous operation to keep your business up and running at all times. Business-class features like redundant power supplies and quiet chassis options increase system reliability.
    • Advanced Data Protection. ECC memory automatically detects and corrects up to 99.988 percent of memory errors for improved data integrity and system uptime. This technology is standard in all Intel Xeon processor-based servers.
    • Redundant Hard Drives. Intel Rapid Storage technology* 11.x (Intel RST) protects your valuable business data by seamlessly storing copies on one or more additional hard drives, thus preventing data loss or system downtime in the event of a hard drive failure.
    • Advanced Data and System Security. Intel OS Guard, Intel Secure Key and Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions** (Intel AES-NI) work together to protect your server, applications and data from today's increasingly sophisticated attacks. You can implement pervasive encryption and other strong security protections throughout your business, while providing easy access for authorized users and maintaining rapid application response times. 1
    Please Note:
    *Intel Rapid Storage technology requires the computer to have an Intel RST-enabled Intel chipset, RAID controller in the BIOS enabled and the Intel RST software driver installed.
    **Intel AES-NI requires a computer system with an AES-NI-enabled processor as well as non-Intel software to execute the instructions in the correct sequence. AES-NI is available on Intel Xeon processors.
    Business Responsiveness
  • Enjoy faster and more reliable access to information and collaborative tools.
    • High Performance for Business-Critical Applications. Supports more employees and delivers faster response times with up to 2.7x more performance than a three-year-old desktop system.*
    • Peak Performance When You Need It Most. Supports Intel Turbo Boost technology 2.0** that delivers more responsive performance even at peak processor loads and reduces power consumption for lighter loads.
    • Better Support for Business Growth. Maintain performance levels as you continue to add new users and applications with dramatic improvements in memory, I/O and storage throughput, compared to previous generation servers. 2
    Please Note:
    *Averaged normalized performance of 3 small and medium-sized business workloads (e-mail, database and web) on an Intel Xeon processor is 172% faster than on an Intel Core 2 processor.
    **Intel Turbo Boost technology 2.0 requires a system with Intel Turbo Boost technology capability.
