(The Hosting News) – This week, Hosting and Infrastructure service provider Hivelocity announced it was adding quad socket Intel Sandy Bridge E5-4600 systems to its dedicated server offerings. The E5-4600 processors enable Hivelocity to offer dedicated servers with 32 physical cores of Intel processing power and up to 1 terabyte of memory.
The E5-4600 systems are geared towards enterprise customers whose system resource requirements are extreme. The hyper-threaded E5 processors allow for 32 physical cores as well as another 32 virtual cores. Additionally these Sandy Bridge processors include Intel’s Turbo Technology which boosts clock speed at times of need. This amount of power does come at a price with these quad-processor systems starting at $1299 per month.
“The older quad-socket E7 systems we sell as well have historically been popular with our customers offering VPS hosting. The amount of physical cores these systems allow really lets our customers offer their customers a very powerful virtualized solution,” says Hivelocity’s Sales Manager Drew Adams. “The systems are not for everyone but for those that want the maximum amount of RAM and processor for their enterprise they are ideal.”
Another reason these processors are so popular with customers utilizing virtualization technology is Intel’s built in I/O reducer included on each chip. Bottlenecks and latency are dramatically reduced with these versatile chips increasing operating efficiencies.
Hivelocity provides dedicated servers, cloud and colocation hosting services to customers in over 130 countries around the world. Hivelocity was recently named as one of Tampa’s fastest growing privately held companies and is the process of building out an additional 8000 square feet of data center space to accommodate growth.
