Dallas, Texas – (The Hosting News) – April 7, 2009 – The first hosting service provider to offer servers featuring new Intel Xeon 5500 processors, built with Intel’s Nehalem microarchitecture, are being offered at SoftLayer Technologies.

Jason Waxman, General Manager of High Density Computing at Intel remarked, ”Intel collaborated with SoftLayer to offer leading-edge technology for on-demand data center services and technology innovation to its customers. We are pleased that Intel’s next generation microarchitecture in the Xeon 5500 series servers will provide breakthrough virtualization performance and enterprise class features to meet SoftLayer’s growing industry demand.” 

The new line of processors provides up to 125% higher compute performance over the prior generation while maintaining similar power consumption. The processors also offer up to two times more virtualization performance, allowing more virtual machines per physical server. 

Intel designed the Nehalem microarchitecture from the ground up to capitalize on all the advantages of their industry-leading 45-nanometer Hi-k metal gate silicon technology. Advantages of the microarchitecture include: 

Dynamically managed cores, threads, cache, interfaces, and power
Simultaneous multi-threading (SMT), enabling more energy efficiency while increasing multi-threaded workload performance
Innovative extensions to the Intel Streaming SIMD Extensions 4 (SSE4) that enhance XML, string, and text processing performance
Superior multi-level cache, including an inclusive shared L3 cache
New high-end system architecture that delivers from two to three times more peak bandwidth and up to four times more realized bandwidth (depending on configuration) as compared to today’s Intel Xeon processors
Performance-enhanced dynamic power management

Lance Crosby, Chief Executive Officer at SoftLayer remarked, ”SoftLayer is excited to lead the industry in offering this new line from Intel. We constantly strive to offer our customers the most advanced server technology and with the introduction of Intel’s Xeon 5500 series, we will be able to provide some of the most efficient solutions in the marketplace.” 

Headquartered in Plano, Texas, SoftLayer delivers world-class, on-demand virtual data center services on a global basis from facilities located in Dallas, TX; Seattle, WA; and Washington, DC. SoftLayer integrates all facets of IT to innovate industry-leading solutions that are fully automated. This empowers customers with complete control, security, scalability, and ease-of-management for their IT environment.
