Chip Shot: Intel Delivering Customized Silicon for Enterprise Solutions

Intel has created a customized SKU based on its latest Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family that, when coupled with Oracle software enhancements, allows Oracle to deliver an “elastic compute environment.”  The solution requires customization of the Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 SKU as well as software changes that enable the Oracle application to dynamically scale the frequency and number of cores to maximize performance. Disclosure of this work was made today at the announcement of Oracle’s new Exadata Database Machine X4-8. This is another example of Intel providing optimized solutions for its partners to address specific workload needs, in this case for enterprise customers.
