There are literally thousands of ways a new Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series based server can benefit your business. I’ll spare you the complete list, but let’s start with the major ones. When you ask yourself the following questions about your business and its needs, you may just find that getting a server right now is the right decision for you.
- Are your servers getting old? Things change, and with the latest server processors, things have changed a lot. The new Intel Xeon processor 5500 series offers up to nine times the performance of a server purchased just four years ago.1 Even though you’ll be outlaying cash for new equipment, spending wisely on a server now will probably save you money in the long run. From energy usage to maintenance costs to software licensing fees, it adds up. Plus, with a new server, you get a new warranty and compatibility with the latest applications. That means fewer hassles for you. Don’t wait until your server breaks, you don’t want to discover the cost of losing data and business downtime.
- Are increasing employee and data demands taxing your systems and your staff? If so, you need the processing power, energy efficiency and reliability a Xeon-based server can deliver – 24/7 uptime, industry-leading performance, memory protection, and a server that automatically shuts down to save energy.
- Do you want to improve productivity? The increased performance of the latest Intel Xeon-based servers enables your IT equipment and your staff to do more with less.
- Is cost-cutting a high priority? With an Intel Xeon processor 5500 series based server, you can benefit from significant energy savings, the reduced costs of easier maintenance and need for fewer servers. By consolidating servers, you can save up on your utility bill. Check out the estimator tool www.intel.com/go/xeonestimator to see how much you could save.
- Are you ready to implement new software? Some of the latest software advances demand newer server capabilities. If you’re looking to implement VMWare* or Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2008*, an Intel Xeon processor 5500 series server delivers the performance your new business applications will need.
- Is your company still using a desktop as a server? Then, now is the time to step up to a real server. Down markets are when smaller companies can take advantage of their agility. Plus, you definitely can’t afford downtime when customer service is so critical.
Ultimately, the biggest question is: Can you afford NOT to invest in the newest Intel Xeon processor-based servers in this economy?
