Intel® Xeon® Processor 5600 and 7500 Series: Driving Changes for BMW Cuts Energy Use by 20%

first_imgTo meet its corporate goals, BMW Group needed to cut carbon emissions and energy use in its data center and make the applications and operations more efficient. It also wanted to develop a larger virtual environment for key applications to lower management costs.Based on its long relationship with Intel, BMW Group tested the new Intel® Xeon® processors 5600 and 7500 series. Moving away from its existing RISC-based platform to the x86 architecture enabled more efficient power usage and increased performance. Virtualization helped  BMW minimize its physical server fleet and improve system manageability.Now BMW expects to reduce energy use by 20 percent. Virtualizing the environment on Intel® architecture will let the company consolidate servers by 30:1. Plus, with better system and application performance the business and development teams can get results sooner and speed time to market.“We’re confident that with our new Intel® technology-based platform we will overachieve against the goals we have set ourselves in terms of business performance and energy efficiency,” said Axel-Knut Bethkenhagen, head of corporate license management for BMW Group.For all the details, read our new BMW Group business success story.
