Use of Virtualization Technology with SAP
In close collaboration with Intel, energy measurements on single-, dual-, and quad-core Intel processor powered servers were performed while running SAP's latest ERP 6.0 software package. The lab stress tests simulated the load of 600 sales and distribution users - detecting a total energy reduction of over 50%. This corresponds – expressed in CO2 equivalents – to the amount of 84 Japanese cedars that could be saved from being cut down. In essence, these compelling results thus testify that significant energy consumption savings for business IT systems can be achieved by employing the latest chip technology.
