Intel Matrix Storage Technology provides new levels of protection, performance, and expandability in 2008 for desktop and mobile platforms. Whether using one or multiple hard drives, users can take advantage of enhanced performance and lower power consumption. When using more than one drive the user can have additional protection against data loss in the event of hard drive failure.
Valuable digital memories are protected against a hard drive failure when the system is configured for any one of three fault-tolerant RAID levels: RAID 1, 5 or 10. By seamlessly storing copies of data on one or more additional hard drives, any hard drive can fail without data loss or system downtime. When the failed drive is removed and a replacement hard drive is installed, data fault tolerance is easily restored. In this way, Intel Matrix Storage Technology provides the level of data protection necessary for today's digital computing platforms. In the digital office the increased redundancy reduces costly downtime and maintains employee productivity involving the PC.
Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)¹ combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.
The Intel 5500 series of chipsets supports Intel® QuickPath Interconnects at 6.4 GT/s, 5.86 GT/s, and 4.8 GT/s speeds. Additionally, this chipset delivers up to dual x16 or quad x8 PCI Express* 2.0 card support, and support for Intel® High Performance Solid State Drives on ICH10 and ICH10R.
Intel® Virtualization TechnologyΔ delivers improved computing benefits for home users, business users, and IT managers alike. This paper describes the unique requirements that embedded systems and communications infrastructure equipment place on virtualized environments and shows how Intel is working with a number of third parties to extend the benefits of Intel Virtualization Technology to these market segments. Bounded real-time performance can be maintained while using virtualization to consolidate systems; system uptime can be increased by enabling software failover without redundant hardware; and software migration can be performed without bringing down the application. Virtualization also allows legacy applications to co-exist with new applications by executing both software environments in parallel, and it provides the means for applications to take advantage of multi-core processors without re-architecting for multi-threaded execution.Δ Intel® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with an enabled Intel® processor, BIOS, virtual machine monitor (VMM) and, for some uses, certain platform software enabled for it. Functionality, performance or other benefits will vary depending on hardware and software configurations and may require a BIOS update. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems. Please check with your application vendo
