NEC launches new enterprise server

Built on Intel Xeon Processor 7500 Series

By CBR Staff Writer

NEC Corp of America has expanded its premier line of enterprise Intel-based servers with the launch of fifth generation server NEC Express5800/A1080a, which it claims to provide flexibility, capacity, performance and configurability exploiting the functionality of Intel Xeon Processor 7500 series.

Building upon the performance of the NEC Express5800/1000 series, the Express5800/A1080a server exploits the functionality of Intel’s QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) technology, delivering over 300% improvement in thread per one unit (1U) density compared to the previous generation server while offering modular partitioning within an innovative single chassis, the company claims.

According to NEC, the Express5800/A1080a server, built on Intel’s new server processor architecture with its enhanced RAS features, will support standard operating system releases. It can accommodate up to 2TB of memory and 128 threads with modular in-box partitioning in a single 7U chassis.

In addtion, the Express5800/A1080a server also includes built-in service processors that work in conjunction with NEC’s BIOS and Intel’s MCA architecture to manage all server resources even when converted into partitions.

The Express5800/A1080a server delivers the density, configuration flexibility and energy efficiency our customers have come to expect from NEC.”
