phoenixNAP today announced that it is the first data center to publicly offer CPU scaling on bare metal servers using an enhanced Intel SpeedStep® technology developed in collaboration with Intel. Powered by 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, the phoenixNAP FlexServer platform is built for data-driven organizations that handle intensive and evolving workloads such as high-performance computing, artificial intelligence/deep learning and machine learning. The solution is unique in its ability to allow users to upgrade or modulate CPU performance characteristics without migrating their data simply by requesting a server reboot.
“Intel strives to introduce capabilities in our platforms that increase value for cloud service end users and simplify their IT operations,” said Jason Grebe, corporate vice president and general manager of the Cloud Platforms and Technology Group at Intel. “PhoenixNAP is now offering our new, unique software-configurable 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors that enable users to precisely dial in the optimal performance level for their workloads and budget on the same server.”
