This past Fall, Intel announced that the Xeon 7400-series processors posted record performance results, marking the first time that the industry has seen 1.2 million database transactions per minute on an 8-socket IBM server. It was announced by Intel Executive Vice President Pat Gelsinger at IDF 2008, and it was the topic of many spirited industry conversations, as well. In this video podcast, Intel’s Mike Moreno speaks with IBM’s Robert Zuber about what the news means for IT managers, and what IBM is doing to help reduce the size of the IT footprint in the enterprise. They also mention new benchmarks around database and virtualization.
