Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 based servers will be core to future most efficient Cloud Infrastructure 
Teltow, 08 March 2012 - NextiraOne has today announced at CeBIT a new addition to its Data Centre solutions portfolio based on Cisco's 3rd generation servers built on Intel's Xeon E5 Series processors. These servers, called B200 M3 (blade servers), C220 M3 and C240 M3, have been recently announced by Cisco.
The new server integrates network, compute, virtualization and management - it therefore addresses address these challenges and helps customers respond rapidly to changing business needs, scale their data centres, and accelerate transition to virtualisation and cloud computing.
The Cisco UCS™ third-generation fabric computing platform incorporates the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family and includes multiple server form factors delivering the industry's highest server density and efficiency, with up to eight times the memory capacity and four times the I/O compared to previous UCS servers. 
"E5-based chipset servers are Cisco's response to market needs. We are excited about the Cisco announcement of its 3rd generation of servers that incorporate more powerful processing, faster interconnects and more IO," says Aman Khan, NextiraOne's European Director Data Centre. "This launch demonstrates the continued strong commitment to the server market by Cisco. We are confident that our customers will be inspired by the system management, performance and energy optimised capabilities of the new servers. We will support all our Cloud and Virtualisation solutions including our VDI/VXI (Virtual Desktop Integration/Virtual Experience Infrastructure) proposition that integrates data, voice and video applications on a single device, based on this newest generation of the Cisco Computing Platform."
Background Information:3rd Generation of Fabric Computing Platform (UCS) from Cisco - 
• Cisco UCS™ customers report dramatic operational and cost improvements up to: 30 percent lower infrastructure expenses, 90 percent reduction in deployment times, 40 percent improvements in application performance, and 60 percent reductions in power/cooling costs.
• The UCS third-generation fabric computing platform incorporates the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family and includes multiple server form factors delivering the industry's highest server density and efficiency, with up to eight times the memory capacity and four times the I/O compared to previous UCS servers. The Cisco UCS Manager now allows IT administrators to manage both blade and rack servers as a common entity, and extends the management domain to span thousands of servers across data centres around the world.
• Through enhanced integration with Cisco Unified Fabric technology, Cisco UCS Manager now unifies management for both blade and rack servers within a single domain. This industry-first capability reduces the cost of server connectivity, provides resource flexibility, and allows IT administrators to add data centre capacity without additional complexity.
• In the second half of 2012, Cisco will introduce technology to support large-scale UCS deployments through centralised management for multiple UCS domains, spanning thousands of servers either in a single data centre or spread across data centres around the world, providing industry-leading automation and orchestration for cloud environments.
