NEC Quick on the Nehalem Draw

Arthur Cole

NEC America is among the first out of the gate with a new server designed around the Xeon 5500 (Nehalem) processor.


The company just released the Express5800/SigmaBlade and Express5800 rack system as part of its Dynamic IT Infrastructure platform that aims for improved performance and lower operating costs.


The SigmaBlade design features up to 64 GB of RAM, two 2.5-inch drive bays, two expansion slots and two FibreChannel ports. Up to eight blades can be installed in the line's M Chassis, while the H Chassis hold up to 16 blades. The rack version comes in 1 U and 2 U configurations, with support for 3.5-inch SAS or SATA or 2.5-inch SAS drives (six for the 1 U and eight for the 2 U).


Both models include the company's Power Capping Technology, as well as the Green Cooling power automation system, and are compatible with the 80 Plus power supply system that functions with at least 20 percent less energy for normal to peak workload periods.


The servers are expected to begin shipping next month.
