Bull UK and Ireland shows how bullion server can help guide customers on their journey to the Clouds

25 Sep 2011 Hemel Hempstead - Bull UK and Ireland has issued the results of an independent benchmark, which highlights the credentials of its high-speed X86 enterprise server, bullion, in virtualising critical enterprise applications and helping to provide customers with a smooth, secure transition to Cloud computing.

The SPECint_rate2006 benchmark found that bullion was more than twice as powerful as the fastest IBM System x3850 servers and delivers 47% more power than the fastest of the HP DL980 G7 servers. Compared with its competitors, IBM and HP servers equipped with Intel processors - bullion provides energy efficiency from 33% to 100% higher.

The result posted by the bullion server is tangible proof of the extreme efficiency of its architecture and the Bull Coherence Switch (BCS) technology.

"It also underlines the potential of the platform to drive the second virtualisation phase of Bul's recently announced journey to the Clouds concept", stated Andrew Carr, sales and marketing director, Bull UK and Ireland. "In this phase, the vendor will concentrate on helping customers improve efficiency by increasing workload, reducing hardware, floor space, management and energy costs and enhancing flexibility."

The first server worldwide to use native VMware technology, bullion was designed by Bull specifically for the virtualisation of critical enterprise applications. The key characteristics of this platform, especially its scalability and power, enable private Clouds to be built that bring together applications and databases within a Services-Oriented Architecture (SOA), a vital component in data centre transformation.

The BCS technology designed by Bull extends the capability of bullion servers by equipping them with not just with the competitio's four or eight socket configurations but right up to 12 or 16 sockets. This means users can easily adapt their infrastructures to meet the ever changing needs of applications operating in Cloud mode and handle the largest critical database applications.

With this benchmark, bullion has clearly demonstrated its ability to provide a consolidation infrastructure by significantly reducing the number of physical servers in the data centre, whilst also cutting energy consumption and simplifying the administration of large-scale data centres or private Cloud set-ups.
