This IDC white paper, sponsored by Intel, examines the growth of mission-critical workloads being hosted on x86 servers based on the Intel Xeon E7 series of processors running enterprise Linux operating systems. It looks at the way in which x86 servers are taking on more demanding workloads, including databases and enterprise applications. It also discusses IDC Workloads data that shows the growth of mission-critical business processing workloads on enterprise Linux platforms.
Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
