2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor
Get Ready for the Future with Modern IT Infrastructure
In business, rapid, disruptive change is the new normal. Business leaders know that they must adapt quickly, or risk getting left behind—but for many, legacy infrastructure is slowing them down. More frequent and sophisticated security exploits combined with network bottlenecks and a massive influx of new data are challenging businesses’ ability to keep up. In fact, 71 percent of IT organizations cite legacy infrastructure as the biggest barrier to transformation. For companies looking to gain or maintain a competitive advantage, moving now to Microsoft Windows Server 2019 and SQL Server 2017 makes sense. Optimized for 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory, Windows Server 2019 and SQL Server 2017 deliver breakthrough, highly scalable performance, strengthened security, and faster insights from data—all while improving total cost of ownership (TCO). In addition, these hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions from Intel and Microsoft help organizations get future-ready by easing the path to hybrid cloud, for increased agility without giving up control.
- This is a “Refresh” launch for the current dual socket/processor (DP) server platform. Uses the same socket as Skylake scalable and requires the new refresh “R” mb/system sku’s or a simple bios update to the “non-R” sku’s (see table below)
- FASTER clock speeds up to 4.4 GHz w/ Intel Turbo Boost
- Up to 1.35X Enhanced Mainstream Performance
- Up to 2X the system memory capacity!
- Can use up to 16GB DIMMs of DDR 2933 Mt/s memory
- Up to 11X AI Inference with Intel Deep Learning (DL) Boost
- Up to 36TB of Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory (more info to come)
- *NEW* Intel Threat Detection Technology
- *NEW* Enhanced Intel Speed Select Technology

Making a migration an opportunity for transformation
Responding to the end of support for your Windows Server 2008 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 installations can be an opportunity to extend the capabilities of your data center – and your business.
With up to 60% savings possible through consolidation and 4x per-node integer throughput performance improvements, organizations that implement modernization strategies shift budget from maintenance to new initiatives. More flexible storage and converged architecture allows for greater use of containers, VMs, and hybrid cloud. Integrated security helps lower risk and reduces operations costs.
