NEC rolled out a new set of Intel-based servers this week, a move the company hopes will strengthen its OEM relationships in North America through new fault-tolerant designs.
First up is a new green system, the Express5800/I 120Ra-e1 server, featuring two low-power Xeon multicores that cut power consumption to 330 watts, compared to a typical dual-CPU design that runs at 680 watts. The 1U device also supports 3.5-inch SAS and SATA drives with optional RAID 5 capability.
The company also has a new 4-socket blade designed for virtual environments with expanded memory and I/O scalability. The Express5800/140Ba-10 sports 16 DIMM memory sockets that delivers up to 64 GB of memory.
Both systems will be available in October.
