Yesterday, Intel launched the Xeon E5-2600 v4 processor family with 26 new world records on industry-standard benchmarksOnce again, Intel’s innovation, driven by Moore’s law, has enabled faster computing for the enterprise world.

Red Hat and Intel have enjoyed a long history of collaboration across a full spectrum of enterprise IT - covering a wide range of use cases, from applications running on physical servers to virtualized and cloud-based deployments. It should come as no surprise that many of

these benchmark results were announced with Red Hat Enterprise Linux serving as the underlying platform (see table below).

With 17 world record results on the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processor family, Red Hat Enterprise Linux was a platform of choice for several Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), just as it was for the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 and Xeon E5-2600 v3 families of processors at their respective launches.

For our customers, these results position Red Hat Enterprise Linux as an excellent choice for demanding enterprise workloads running across, physical, virtual or cloud deployments, thanks in no small part to Red Hat Enterprise Linux’s system performance and support for many of the latest enterprise computing features. These results demonstrate that Red Hat Enterprise Linux runs workloads more efficiently with fewer systems while achieving better results as compared to the competition.

We would like to congratulate our OEM partners that have selected the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform to deliver these top performance results on new hardware. These outstanding results underscore the importance of collaboration across the entire technology ecosystem, as many of these records are the culmination of combined silicon, hardware and software improvements.

We are very pleased to see a continued dedication to Red Hat Enterprise Linux as an open source platform for handling the rigors of these very demanding benchmarks. Compared to other operating systems used to produce record-setting results, Red Hat Enterprise Linux was used in one half of all publications. Out of 34 benchmark results results posted by 9 different OEM partners, Red Hat Enterprise Linux was used in 17, surpassing both SuSE and Microsoft.

Moreover, the industry adoption of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for running and publishing standard benchmarks, such as those from SPEC and TPC, continues to grow.

As the chart (above) demonstrates, Red Hat Enterprise Linux was predominantly used in TPC and SPEC benchmark publications during the last two years*. These benchmarks cover a broad spectrum of workloads ranging from compute-intensive technical computing problems to Big Data analytics and from enterprise Java applications to virtualization.

Enterprises and customers place increasing demands on their infrastructure and, with today’s results and those before it, Red Hat’s flagship platform continues to distinguish itself by showing industry-leading capabilities and excellent performance regardless of workload type and deployment environment, effectively expanding the boundaries of traditional IT.
