Milpitas, California – (The Hosting News) – November 20, 2006 –
Server and storage for large-scale data centers provider, Rackable Systems, Inc., has launched its quad-core Intel Xeon Processor Server Cabinet, recently demonstrated at the Intel Developer Forum.
Volume availability of the new 5300 series systems, (code named ‘Clovertown’), features a high efficiency rack-mount platform. Using the Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor E5345, the new servers feature performance gains of up to 83 percent over systems using Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5140.1 Designed to consume the lowest possible amount of power, a Rackable Systems C1000 1U rack-mount server with two quad-core 2.33 GHz processors draws less than 290 watts at the system level.
Available with Rackable SystemsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ award-winning DC power technology, the new line of servers features customizable 1U, 2U and 3U rack-mount configurations designed to optimize power consumption and reduce the cost of data center operations. Rackable Systems leverages its hallmark back-to-back mounting technique to achieve density levels of up to 88 rack-mount server nodes per cabinet to achieve unprecedented density levels of 704 processing cores using the new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series.
Tom Barton, CEO of Rackable Systems explained, ”IntelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new quad-core processors mark a significant leap in Intel Xeon processor performance, and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re proud to be on the forefront of bringing this new technology to market,Ã¢â‚¬Â said ”Rackable Systems” new line of quad-core systems gives us the opportunity to further extend our leadership in providing extreme density and outstanding value per watt per square foot for the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most demanding data centers.”
In addition to reduced power consumption and superior performance, servers featuring the new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series benefit from fully buffered dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs), which provide a new memory interface for faster data transmission, including improved signal integrity and error detection. System expansion capability is provided via PCI Express allowing for traditional options such as Ethernet, Disk Controller (RAID), InfiniBand and Fibre Channel as well as investment protection for future upgrades.
Kirk Skaugen, Vice President, Digital Enterprise Group, Intel added, ”The Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series offers Rackable Systems servers a significant gain in performance within the same thermal envelope as Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors, enabling Rackable Systems to continue its focus on providing ever-greater performance and density for space and power-constrained data centers. The new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor is enabling Rackable Systems to provide amazing new levels of energy-efficient performance to its customers.”
