Open Source Storage, a provider of enterprise server and storage solutions for mission-critical business datacentres...
has launched open series servers based on the new Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processor 5000. Formerly known as Dempsey, the Xeon processor 5000 is claimed to provide faster, energy-efficient processing capabilities for increased system performance and responsiveness, while lowering power consumption with a 95 watt per processor rating.
Claiming up to twice the performance of single-core servers for its technology, Intel boasts that its new 64-bit processors provide ‘best-in-class’ performance for enterprise, web and computer-intensive application servers. It also says that the chip’s fully buffered DIMM technology boosts system responsiveness for data-intensive applications and business-critical services.
Open Source Storage adds that from 26 June it will offer servers featuring even lower wattage and higher performing Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors, the 5100 series codenamed 'Woodcrest'. OSS says that the 5100 series delivers up to three times the performance per watt and greater than two-times performance over single-core Intel Xeon processors.
"The performance-optimised processors offer a broad choice for datacentre optimisation, combining energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness," says Jared Giles, director of marketing for Open Source Storage.
"Customers will appreciate our ability to provide the high performance they are accustomed to from OSS, while lowering overall power consumption. Not all customers have unlimited power within their datacentres."
