Over the past decade dramatic changes have been taking place in the datacenter. Long gone are the days when Sun was the "dot" in .com and companies were scrambling to put in place e-Commerce strategies and place their businesses on the Internet super highway. Expensive RISC systems and mainframes have been increasingly replaced by highly-scalable and reliable industry standard-based computing platforms capable of running the most mission-critical enterprise applications and workloads. Intel discusses the trends driving today's datacenter computing requirements and how the latest Intel Xeon Processor-based server platforms are delivering the reliability, scalability and performance of proprietary Big-Iron RISC systems and mainframes, while offering greater flexibility at a fraction of the cost.
