Verari Systems, a developer of platform-independent blade computing systems, is to introduce server platforms based on the new dual-core Intel Xeon processor 5100, known to many as Woodcrest.
The new chip offers FBD memory, PCI Express I/O, hardware-assisted virtualisation and more other features, which Verari says give customers the power to do more with every server.
David Wright, CEO of Verari Systems, says, "As we've seen over the past several years, power and cooling costs have become substantial contributors to datacentre total cost of ownership.
“Intel is doing its part by taming one of the biggest heat culprits in the datacentre with its new 65-watt, 64-bit dual-core processors that boost power efficiency by up to three times."
Integrated across its line of servers, Verari says that the 65-watt processor will enable up to three times the performance per watt and greater than two times performance over single-core Intel Xeon processors.
Official benchmark results conducted by both companies were released on in May. Verari claims a peak of 34.9 gigaflops per node during Linpack benchmarking based on an Intel preproduction customer reference board with two dual-core Intel Xeon Processors.
