Intel® Xeon® Processor E7 Family running SAP ERP* with VMWare

SAP ERP* applications help companies address the ups and downs of markets, business cycles, and compliance by providing software solutions that include operations, financials, corporate services, and human capital management. With greater enterprise productivity and insight from SAP ERP , companies have the power ...needed to adapt quickly and cost-effectively to changing business, market, and industry requirements. By running SAP ERP in a virtualized environment, IT can add to these benefits by lowering IT costs and increasing data center and business agility.
Not long ago, Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series delivered breakthrough capability and value for SAP deployments by providing near-native performance in virtual machines, along with levels of reliability and scalability never before seen in industry-standard servers. Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family extends those benefits by providing additional computing resources for demanding enterprise workloads, including more cores, more cache, and twice the memory capacity. These processors also include new reliability and security features to protect systems, applications, and data even more effectively. Four-socket and larger servers based on this new processor family are ideal for virtualizing and consolidating mission-critical ERP workloads to reduce costs and increase agility without compromising performance.&
How Intel Benefits SAP ERP
For more than 10 years, Intel and SAP AG have worked together to help ensure leading performance for SAP software solutions on Intel® processor-based servers. By running SAP ERP on servers with Intel® Xeon® processors, enterprises can tap the power of that collaboration and access outstanding application performance and easy scalability to help achieve their business goals.
Servers based on the Intel Xeon processor E7 family deliver top-of-the-line support for demanding SAP work-loads. Non-virtualized SAP software deployments can result in significant server sprawl due to the use of multiple paths to production and the tiered software architecture. With up to 40 processor cores, 80 execution threads and two terabytes of memory, a standard four-socket Intel Xeon processor E7 family-based server provides ample resources for consolidating SAP environments. Eight-socket and larger systems are available from leading server vendors, offering even higher capacity for virtualizing and consolidating demanding workloads.
