Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1540 to Increase Performance and Scalability

Server Mania is pleased to announce we’ll soon be providing a new tier of hosting services on the powerful Intel Xeon D-1540 processors. They are guaranteed to provide faster services for clients, while using less power. The D-1500 series is the first Intel Xeon System on a Chip. (SoC)

Keep your eyes (and e-mail inbox) open for further announcements from us on the availability of the new services offering, scheduled to debut before August 15th!

The eight processor D-1540 includes direct integration on the chip to functions such as:

  • I/Os
  • Intel Ethernet
  • Drivers
  • BIOS
  • Firmware

We feel the D-1540 is ideal for cloud server hosting, and our dedicated server hosting services, as they are made for dense, compact form factors. They run with less heat than older Intel processors, and have data security features built in. Other features Intel has paced into their Xeon Processor D family include:

  • Up to 128 GB of Memory
  • Intel virtualization technology built-in
  • Server class Reliablity, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) to ensure your data is there when you need it
  • Intel platform storage extensions

The D-1540, as you will see in the comparison chart below, the D-1540 runs on about half of the power of the E3-1240 and significantly lower than the E5-1620. Bringing servers with these processors into our Server Mania data centers provides us with the opportunity to offer a higher level of service to our clients, and more value.

Intel recommends the Xeon D-1540 be deployed for a variety of workloads, including

  • Dynamic web serving
  • Dedicated web hosting
  • Warm storage
  • Network routing

Check out how the new D-1540 powered servers line compare to the processors powering our existing servers, which are already very reliable, secure and configured for high performance!
