Support your hybrid cloud infrastructure and most demanding applications – including in-memory analytics, artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, high performance computing (HPC), and network transformation.

The Future-Forward Platform Foundation for Agile Digital Services

Empowering Transformation in a Digital World
Across an evolving digital world, disruptive and emerging technology trends in business, industry, science, and entertainment increasingly impact the world’s economies. By 2020, the success of half of the world’s Global 2000 companies will depend on their abilities to create digitally enhanced products, services, and experiences,1 and large organizations expect to see an 80 percent increase in their digital revenues,2 all driven by advancements in technology and usage models they enable.

This global transformation is rapidly scaling the demands for flexible compute, networking, and storage. Future workloads will necessitate infrastructures that can seamlessly scale to support immediate responsiveness and widely diverse performance requirements. The exponential growth of data generation and consumption, the rapid expansion of cloud-scale computing, emerging 5G
networks, and the extension of high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) into new usages require that today’s data centers and networks urgently evolve—or be left behind in a highly competitive environment. These demands are driving the architecture of modernized, future-ready data centers and networks that can quickly flex and scale.

The Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform provides the foundation for a powerful data center platform that creates an evolutionary leap in agility and scalability. Disruptive by design, this innovative processor sets a new level of platform convergence and capabilities across compute, storage, memory, network, and security. Enterprises and cloud and communications service providers can now
drive forward their most ambitious digital initiatives with a feature-rich, highly versatile platform.

Enabling Greater Efficiencies and Lower TCO
Across infrastructures, from enterprise to technical computing applications, the Intel Xeon Scalable platform is designed for data center modernization to drive operational efficiencies that lead to improved total cost of ownership (TCO) and higher productivity for users. Systems built on the Intel Xeon Scalable platform are designed to deliver agile services and reduce TCO up to 65 percent4 due to lower software and OS licensing fees, and acquisition, maintenance, and infrastructure costs.

Comparing Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform to both four-year-old and last-generation Intel Xeon processor-based systems, the latest
generation Intel CPU delivers better performance and capabilities for enterprise, cloud, communications, and HPC.5

Virtualization in the enterprise has been steadily on the rise for a decade. Most organizations have taken advantage of some form of virtualization, creating greater need for servers to run virtual machines (VMs) in the data center. Intel Xeon Scalable platform enables 4.2×5 more VMs per server compared to earlier generations, allowing IT to increase their consolidation of more services on less hardware.

Pervasive, Breakthrough Performance

From its new Intel® Mesh Architecture and widely expanded resources to its hardware-accelerating and newly
integrated technologies, the Intel Xeon Scalable platform enables a new level of consistent, pervasive, and
breakthrough performance.
