The x3850 X5 server is the fifth generation of the Enterprise X-Architecture, delivering innovation with enhanced reliability and availability features to enable optimal performance for databases, enterprise applications, and virtualized environments. Environments that run around the clock to supply information world-wide require dependable servers with features that can tolerate a component failure without total shutdown.

The x3850 X5 server packs numerous fault-tolerant and high-availability features into a high-density, rack-optimized package that helps to significantly reduce the space needed to support massive network computing operations. A single x3850 X5 supports up to four of Intel's high-performance 10-core processors and up to 1.5 TB of memory. Two x3850 X5 servers can be connected together to form a single-system image with up to eight processors and up to 3 TB of RAM. This processing capacity is ideal for large-scale database or virtualization requirements.

The x3850 X5 is an ideal server for enterprise database and virtualization workloads. The x3850 X5 currently holds the #1 scores in five industry-standard benchmarks. This includes a four-socket TPC-C (database benchmark) result of over 2.3 million transactions per minute (27% better than the closest HP result) and world record TPC-H (business intelligence) price performance result.
