New SGI CEO builds firewall around unprofitable sales

SGI tapped a new CEO, Jorge Titinger, back at the end of February to get the company back on an even keel, and in the wake of SGI's reporting its financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2012, Titinger conceded that he has his work cut out for him because SGI, like many other server makers from time to time, has been …

Dell's rapier-thin PowerEdge M420 to render Hobbits?

Dell has disclosed a few more details of the rapier-thin PowerEdge M420 server we spotted back in February. One of those details is that the server isn't literally rapier-thin. Baseball-bat thin is a better description, as we hope is conveyed in the photo at the bottom of this story. We took that snap at the new Dell …

Super Micro grows despite Xeon E5 delay, disk shortages

Motherboard and system maker Super Micro has been anticipating the bump in revenues from Intel's "Sandy Bridge" family of Xeon E5 chips and their related "Romley" server designs for nearly a year, and finally the Romley romp has begun. In the company's third quarter of fiscal 2012 ended in March, revenues rose by 2.5 per cent …

Dell fuels up Precision workstations with Xeon E5s

Intel has got its Xeon E5 processors out the door for boxes with one or two sockets and is getting ready to start the "Ivy Bridge" generation of desktop processors, and so it's no surprise Dell is revamping its Precision workstation lineup. The direct vendor is keeping momentum going in this fast-growing segment of the desktop …

Oracle forges Xeon E5 racks and blades

Oracle has launched five new servers – three rackables and two blades – based on Intel's new Xeon E5-2600 two-socket server processors. HP and Dell tried to jump the gun and get ahead of Intel's launch of the Xeon E5-2600s with their respective ProLiant Gen8 and PowerEdge 12G machines. But Larry Ellison's Oracle, a relative …

Big Blue trots out Xeon E5-2600 server lineup

IBM announced a passel of shiny new x86 iron this week, all built around Intel's two-socket Xeon E5-2600 chip, which formally debuted on Tuesday – although select customers such as Big Blue have been fiddling with that server chip for months. IBM generates a lot of its revenues and profits in hardware and software from …

NOAA picks IBM for supercomputer storm chasing

Updated The server executives at Big Blue are probably breathing a bit easier now that the company managed to survive a competitive bidding process on a monster supercomputer contract at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the climate modeling arm of the US Department of Commerce. As a result, IBM has the potential to …

Cisco outs third gen UCS blades and racks

When Intel launched its "transformational" "Nehalem-EP" Xeon 5500 processors for two-socket boxes three years ago, Cisco Systems picked that moment to jump into the server racket and got pole position on the announcements. It's three years on now and while Cisco is not yet a tier-one server maker, it has built a business with a …

Intel Xeon E5s pruned for single-socket workstations

Intel's "Sandy Bridge-EP" Xeon E5 server chip launch extravaganza is not just about servers. It also includes some chippery for their forebears: old-fashioned, heavy-duty, desktop machines that are still called workstations. Intel usually has a variant of its single-socket server processors – in years gone by, the Xeon SP and …

Intel: The data center will be 'Xeon E5 Inside'

Diane Bryant, Intel's former CIO and now general manager of the chip giant's Data Center and Connected Systems Group, has gone from installing Xeon servers to run the company, to hawking them to all of the other companies on the planet. And, of course, making sure that Intel engineers cook up the next-generation Xeons so …

Intel plugs both your sockets with 'Jaketown' Xeon E5-2600s

The Xeon E5-2600, formerly known by the code-name "Jaketown" inside of Intel and "Sandy Bridge-EP" when Intel referred to it externally, is finally here for mainstream, two-socket servers. And now the 2012 server cycle begins in earnest – even if it wasn't soon enough for the most ardent data-center motorheads. The Xeon E5- …

Dell has rapier-thin blade server in the works

Dell is pushing the lower limits of blade servers up against microservers. As El Reg has already told you in detail, Dell this week is previewing its PowerEdge 12G family of servers. The company divulged six different machines – one blade, one tower, three racks, and a cloudy box – but as it turns out, there is at least one …

Dell flashes enhanced 12G racks of PowerEdge gear

To say that the x86 server makers are a little anxious for Intel to launch the "Sandy Bridge-EP" processors and get the Xeon E5 transition under way is a bit of an understatement. They are positively champing at the bit. Hewlett-Packard previewed its ProLiant Gen8 machine based on the Xeon E5s two weeks ago at its partner …

Japanese boffins fire up 802 teraflops ceepie-geepie

Upstart supercomputer maker Appro International has started up another Xeon E5-based supercomputer, this one a hybrid CPU-GPU Xtreme-X machine installed at the University of Tsukuba in Japan. The deal at Tsukuba was announced last September at about the same time that Intel was widely expected to launch the "Sandy Bridge-EP" …

HP previews ProLiant Gen8 servers

You can look at HP's new ProLiant Gen8 servers, but you can't touch. At the company's Global Partner Conference in Las Vegas this week, HP previewed some of the forthcoming machines' capabilities, but – much to the chagrin of hardware enthusiasts – didn't talk about the processors, system boards, and other "slots and watts" …

It is becoming more apparent why supercomputer and server maker Silicon Graphics' former president and CEO Mark Barrenechea decided to exit stage left back in December. While the company was growing gear sales, it was heading deeper into the red ink as old machines came off maintenance and new machines await their ramps this …
