Since its introduction more than a decade ago, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has become the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform. Along the way it has set the industry standard for performance as most recently demonstrated by Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 delivering multiple world record-breaking benchmark results at launch. These results showcased close collaboration between Red Hat and our ecosystem of partners.
With history as a backdrop, it should come as no surprise that many of our partners rely on Red Hat Enterprise Linux to support their ongoing benchmarking efforts. Red Hat and Intel have enjoyed a long history of collaboration across a full spectrum of all that is enterprise IT – covering everything from applications running on physical servers to virtualized and cloud-based deployments. In fact, during yesterday’s launch of the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processor family

In a recent post, we reviewed the 10 world record results set by Red Hat Enterprise Linux on the Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 family. Besides showcasing the extreme capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, these performance achievements tell another compelling story – Red Hat Enterprise Linux has become an exceedingly popular choice when it comes to tough workloads.
For example, consider the share of Red Hat Enterprise Linux versus other operating systems used to produce these records. Out of 20 world record benchmark results (22 total submissions, 3 results were tied) posted by eight different OEM partners at the Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 family announcement, Red Hat Enterprise Linux was used in 12. Seventy-five percent of the hardware vendors taking part in this process chose to publish their world record benchmarks on the new family of processors using Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The chart below shows the significance of this adoption.
