"Intel launched its' next generation Xeon E5 processor family
last week, promising better raw compute performance and a new Data
Direct I/O system. I wondered last week, how Linux vendors would be
leveraging the E5, since Linux plays such a huge role in the server
In my initial inquiries, I heard back from HP and Dell and both
those vendors mentioned they had certified their servers for E5
with Red Hat and SUSE. No mention of Ubuntu. So I checked in with
Canonical/Ubuntu to see if in fact they are supporting E5 for the
upcoming 12.04 Ubuntu Linux release.
