By CBR Staff Writer

iXsystems has unveiled the iX-Green Neutron, a new line in the ‘Earth’ series of environmentally friendly servers. The announcement is made at OpenSource World, Next Generation Data Center, and CloudWorld 2009 events.

iXsystems said that the new iX-Green series features the iX-GN1204, the iX-GN1208 and the iX-GN 2216 servers. These servers utilise power-saving DDR3 memory, 2.5” SAS and/or SATA drives, and come equipped with improved power supplies.

According to iXsystems, the DDR3 memory is expected to provide up to 1333MHz performance speed while averaging 20% to 30% less power consumption than its FB-DDR2 predecessors. The new iX-Green series also leverages Intel’s Xeon Processor 5500 series to enhance performance and energy-efficiency over previous version processors.

The company said that the iX-GN1204 1U configuration features 4 physical cores (8 virtual cores with Hyper-Threading enabled), up to 24GB of low voltage RAM, and 4 hot-swap 2.5” SAS/SATA drives. The iX-GN1208 1U configuration features up to 8 cores (16 virtual cores with Hyper-Threading enabled), up to 96 GB of low voltage RAM, and 8 hot-swap 2.5” SAS/SATA drives.
