Rackable kicks Xeon 7000 chips into fresh, beefy server
Now with 25 per cent more teal
Rackable Systems is launching a new four-socket server using Intel's dual- and quad-core Xeon 7200 and 7300 processors.
The C4108 comes in at 4U and industry-standard depth. It holds 256GB of memory using 1, 2, or 4GB 667MHz FB-DIMMs. Basic multiplication shows a fully-loaded system contains a total of 16 cores. That's twice the number of processors and memory Rackable put into its previous Xeon-based servers.
It holds four to eight 2.5" hot-swap SAS or SATA II drives. Max storage capacity is 1.168TB with SAS, and 960GB with SATA II. There are four PCI Express x8 slots (two with hot-plug support) and three PCI Express x4 slots.
Remote management features include IPMI support and keyboard, video and mouse redirection via a dedicated out-of-band network interface.
The C4108 runs the big 32- and 64-bit operating systems, including Windows Server 2003, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10.
The box with 7300 series processors is VMware certified for Virtual Infrastructure 3.0.2 update 1 and 3.5.
Can you dig the teal?®
I'd rather have a Dell DCS solution
That way I can have the server designed the way I want it, not the way they think I want it.
Its just an Intel S7000FCUR server
This is just an Intel S7000FCUR server platform and there are dozens, if not hundreds of companies world wide selling the exact same animal. All Rackable appears to have done is give it a part number. That must have them weeks of development, coming up with a combination of five letters and numbers.
So much a Fujitsu Rx600S4
Or is it the other way round????
