Boston, Massachusetts – (The Hosting News) – April 6, 2006 – Enterprise hosting company, The Planet, has expanded by adding a new line of servers from Penguin Computing.
Julia Morgan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for The Planet explained, ”Penguin servers are designed and custom built for high volume dedicated hosting environments like ours. And because the servers were pre-integrated by Penguin’s experts, we can deliver increased reliability through a superior quality control process. This allows us to focus on tailoring servers to each customer’s unique needs and providing even more value to our customers with these high end machines.”
Bill Cook, Senior Vice President of Sales and Services of Penguin Computing commented, ”We understand The Planet’s goal of value-add; that is why we went the extra mile by pre-testing and delivering a network ready solution for The Planet so they were up and running fast. Penguin servers also offer customers flexibility because they use standards-based components that scale out easily to connect to most existing infrastructures for fast deployment. Even more importantly to customers like The Planet, our tool-less case designs and powerful Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor technology deliver great performance per unit of space, which is critically important to web hosting companies for whom servers are both a source of revenue and a cost of goods sold.”
According to the company, The Planet has increased its datacenters in the last 18 months, growing to more than 200,000 square feet. Within the last year, The Planet has been recognized nationally for its growth in publications rankings such as the Inc. 500, Deloitte Technology Fast 500 and the Metroplex Technology Business Council Tech Titans-Tech Fast 50.
Penguin Computing’s products, including Scyld cluster software and the BladeRunne server, are intended to help service providers increase profitability by lowering operational costs through power efficiency and ease of management. The Penguin servers selected by The Planet feature a PCI Express or optional PCI-X expansion slot, up to four hot swap 3.5″ hard drives, an optional slim optical drive and up to 16GB of ECC Reg. DDR RAM. This family of servers also includes dual integrated 10-100 Gigabit Ethernet NICs and integrated IPMI management.
