Today Intel announced the new Intel Xeon processor E7-8800/4800 v4 processor family for High Performance Data Analytics. Designed with the enterprise in mind, the Intel Xeon processor E7 v4 family offers robust performance, the industry’s largest memory capacity per socket, advanced reliability and hardware enhanced security for real-time analytics so that businesses can rapidly gain actionable insights from massive and complex data sets.
The new Xeon V4 family also offers industry-leading memory capacity of up to 24TB in an eight-socket system, allowing massive datasets to be stored completely in memory, rather than on hard drives, to accelerate time to insight and decision-making.
According to Intel, the new Xeons are optimal for scale-up platforms, delivering large in-memory computing for real-time analytics as well as data-intensive workloads such as online transaction processing (OLTP), supply chain management (SCM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP), among others. The Intel Xeon processor E7 v4 family “delivers up to 1.4 times higher performance, up to 10 times better performance for dollar and half the system power compared to IBM Power8-based solutions.”
