Las Vegas, Nevada – (The Hosting News) – June 17, 2009 – The highly anticipated Gemini Twin 1U Server, marking the latest generation in server technology and a significant breakthrough in high-density, high-efficiency server computing, was recently unveiled by Rackmount Specialists.
Rob Tyree, CTO of Rackmount Specialists noted, ”Gemini’s revolutionary chassis design and ultra high-efficiency engineering make it an ideal solution for datacenters, clustering, web hosting applications, and hyperscale server deployments. With a typical power draw of less than 38 Watts – or about a sixty percent reduction in energy usage – it’s a perfect solution for drastically increasing density in power-constrained environments. Gemini truly represents the best balance of cost, efficiency, and performance available today.”
Gemini Twin 1U Servers, for the first-time ever in the industry, enable two fully independent servers to be mounted in 1U of rack space â€“ instantly doubling data center density. Unlike other 2-in-1 server designs, each Gemini Twin 1U Server is fully discrete, and can be removed from the rack for service individually.
Power consumption and cooling requirements are also markedly reduced with Gemini Twin 1U servers. Each system includes the efficient and high-powered Intel Atom 330 processor, 1.6GHz Dual Core CPU with 533MHz FSB and 512KB L2 Cache per Core (1M total). The default hardware configuration also supports up to 2GB DDR2 533/667 RAM.
Pricing for base configurations with the Intel Atom processor will start as low as $450 per unit. Rackmount Specialists builds each server to order at their assembly plant in Las Vegas, Nevada. Manufacturing and assembly of most chassis components is also being completed in America.
Don Reed, CEO of Rackmount Specialists explained, ”Implementing environmentally-friendly technologies is more than a moral imperative, is also exceptionally smart business. We designed Gemini Twin 1U Servers to minimize energy consumption and maximize the capability of data centers, by enabling existing facilities to support levels of density that used to be unachievable due to cooling and service limitations.”
