Newisys ® Introduces Best-In-Class Servers Supporting Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ Processors
Austin, Texas --
, a Sanmina-SCI Company (Nasdaq NM: SANM) and leading developer of enterprise-class server and storage designs, today announced its Newisys 2100-E and 4300-E Enterprise-Class Servers based on the latest Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processors. The Newisys servers integrate groundbreaking dual-core processor capability with balanced server design to introduce a new level of performance, flexibility and value for the enterprise.
At an event commemorating AMD’s second anniversary of the AMD Opteron processor, Newisys demonstrated its Newisys 2100-E, 4300-E and 4300-EDP servers that support the Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor with Direct Connect Architecture. This technology results in a new type of processor that embeds two processor cores on a single microprocessor allowing for a significant increase of bandwidth.
“These innovative Newisys Enterprise-Class Servers, combined with Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor technology, are among the most compact and powerful servers on the market,” stated Don Johnson, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Computing and Storage Division, Sanmina-SCI. “The Newisys servers offer leading performance for today’s 32-bit workloads as well as address applications that were previously available exclusively through high-priced, proprietary 64-bit RISC servers.”
“Newisys is the first in our Validated Server Program to bring Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor-based servers to the enterprise market where heat and power consumption are of paramount importance,” said Ben Williams, vice president, Commercial and Server/Workstation Business, AMD. “Dual-core AMD64 technology enables enterprise users to increase their computing capacity without increasing power requirements, providing the best performance-per-watt ratio in the industry.”
The Newisys 2100-E features two Dual-Core AMD Operton processors, up to 16 gigabytes of DDR400 memory, and superior systems-management tools for complete OS independence and maximum availability. The Newisys 2100 is ideal for Web or application hosting, high-performance computer clusters, offsite/remote server installations, database workloads and corporate data centers.
The Newisys 4300-E provides the performance, availability and manageability required for business-critical workloads. With four Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors, the Newisys 4300-E features up to 64 gigabytes of DDR400 memory, extensive hot-swap PCI-X expansion capability, and enterprise RAS features. The Newisys 4300-E is ideal for corporate data centers running large databases, mission-critical enterprise applications, data warehouses, messaging infrastructures, and complex, compute-intensive analytical workloads for engineering, life sciences and financial services disciplines
Newisys servers are the first enterprise-class servers tested, certified and available via AMD’s Validated Server Program (VSP), which offers system builders validated, stable and reliable solutions built on AMD Operton processor-based server platforms. The first dual-core units will be available next month.
