Security - Trusted Platform Module
The TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is a microcontroller chip that can securely store artifacts used to authenticate the server platform. These artifacts can include passwords, certificates and encryption keys. Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption (BitLocker) is a data protection feature available in Windows Server 2008. BitLocker leverages the enhanced security capabilities of a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 1.2. The TPM works with BitLocker to help protect user data and to ensure that a server running Windows Server 2008 has not been tampered with while the system was offline.
NOTE: 1: HT indicates that the processor model supports Intel Hyper-Threading Technology.

Turbo indicates the maximum potential frequency increment when using Intel Turbo Boost Technology, with 4, 3, 2, and 1 cores active (on Four Core processors) or with 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 cores active (on Six Core processors).

DDR3 speed is the maximum memory speed of the processor. Actual memory speed may depend on the quantity and type of DIMMs installed.

For the Intel 5500 and 5600 Series, the letter preceding the model number indicates the performance/wattage of the processor. "X" denotes High Performance/Wattage; "E" denotes Enterprise Performance/Wattage (Mainstream); and "L" denotes Lower Wattage.

2: A minimum of 2GB of memory must be installed.

Depending on the memory configuration and processor model the memory speed may run at 1333 MHz, 1066 MHz or 800 MHz. Click here to see the Online Memory Configuration Tool .
