More Cores, More DRAM, means more Performance for 2014 Servers

Office of the CTO

Recently VMware enabled support for a number of hardware innovations that add more processor sockets, processor cores, and system DRAM to standard x86 Servers. And we are beginning to see the performance benefits from it. 1. Intel Xeon E5-2600-v3 Processor (codenamed “Haswell-EP”) support “Haswell-EP” launched on Sep 8, 2014 and had immediate Day 0 support with vSphere 5.1 Update 2 [2] that was available earlier. With the launch of vSphere 5.5 update 2 [1] the following day, there were 22 servers on the VMware Compatibility Guide supporting “Haswell-EP” [3] on that day. The “Haswell-EP” generation system has a number of improvements over the previous generation system including: greater number of hardware threads (up to 18-cores and 36-threads per processor package and 72 threads for a 2-socket system), reduced virtualization overhead (vmexit round-trip time and better APIC virtualization), and DDR4 memory
