Consider 4-Socket Servers Instead of 2-Socket Servers to Reduce Your TCO by up to 70%

When considering server purchases, it may be time to consider adding additional headroom for growth in your space- and/or power-constrained data center. There are many factors to consider when making the buying decision, but if performance is key for future growth and spikes, it may make sense to step up to the new 4-socket servers based on Intel® Xeon® processors E5-4600 product family.

For this comparison, we assumed 135 servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5606 and 100 servers based on the Intel Xeon processor E5-2609 which equates to similar performance of 32 servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4607. Fewer servers deployed results in a lower total server hardware acquisition cost and thus fewer OS licenses required to purchase and maintain. Fewer servers and improved density also translates to lower data center power and cooling costs as well as less server maintenance required. All of this culminates in an estimated 4-year total cost of ownership (TCO) advantage up to 70%.

Different comparisons in system configuration and performance benchmarks may yield different results. Other than the obvious change in processor SKU, one change in hardware configuration that may impact the TCO advantage is memory population. The larger the memory footprint assumed, the higher the impact on the total server acquisition cost and the larger the difference between the memory subsystem cost for both 2S and 4S platforms. This is because the Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 product family has twice the memory capacity and thus can optimize the memory subsystem cost compared to the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family, allowing for use of lower-cost DIMM densities. Based on January 2012 pricing, the memory capacity at which systems based on the Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 product family see an advantage over the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family is 256 GB and above. (Of course, memory pricing changes regularly, so customers should perform their own analysis to determine their TCO advantages.)

Results have been estimated based on internal Intel analysis and are provided for informational purposes only. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance.

  • Up to 70% 4-year TCO savings based on Intel estimates by comparing 135 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5606-based servers to 30 4S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4607-based servers that provide equivalent total server performance using Intel estimates of SPECint*_rate_base2006. The 4-year TCO savings based on:
  • Intel estimate of 105 fewer servers in the data center by purchasing the 4S servers results in:
  • server acquisition cost of $1,067,715 (135 servers at $7,909 each) for the 2S vs. $324,736 (30 servers at $10,824 each),
  • server maintenance savings of $51,500,
  • infrastructure (network, rack/floor space and utility) savings of $163,710,
  • and OS license savings of $411,897.
  • Up to 43% 4-year TCO savings based on Intel estimates by comparing 100 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2609-based servers to 30 4S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4607-based servers that provide equivalent total server performance using Intel estimates of SPECint*_rate_base2006. The 4-year TCO savings based on:
  • Intel estimate of 70 fewer servers in the data center by purchasing the 4S servers results in:
  • server acquisition cost of $463,400 (100 servers at $4,634 each) for the 2S vs. $324,736 (30 servers at $10,824 each),
  • server maintenance savings of $34,000,
  • infrastructure (network, rack/floor space and utility) savings of $88,941,
  • and OS license savings of $271,932.

1. 效能測試中使用的軟體與工作負載,可能只有針對 Intel 微處理器執行的效能最佳化。效能測試 (例如 SYSmark* 與 MobileMark*) 使用特定的電腦系統、元件、軟體、作業及功能進行評量。這些因素若有任何變更,可能會導致不同的結果。考慮購買時,為了協助您充分評估,您應該參考其他資訊及效能測試,包括該產品結合其他產品使用時的效能表現。

2. 每個效能標竿之相對效能的計算是根據第一個受測平台的實際效能標竿結果而得,並將基準值指定為 1。其餘受測平台的相對效能的計算,是將基準平台的實際效能標竿結果除以其他每一個平台個別的特定效能標竿結果,同時為它們指定能夠與回報之效能改善相對應的效能編號。
