This webinar will provide insight into Dell Processor Acceleration Technology - a free firmware download for the Dell PowerEdge R620, R720 and R720xd servers featuring the Intel E5-2690 processor - which can boost their performance by up to 30%. Market data and trading applications immediately run faster as a result, with no time consuming and potentially dangerous code changes. Dell experts will cover customer drivers that led to this offering, together with details of how it works, and how it meets your needs.
