NEC rolls out new servers

NEC has unveiled a new energy efficient server, as well as a new four-socket blade server.

The NEC Express5800/i120RA-e1 server uses Intel's Xeon low-voltage processor, lower power-consuming memory and a redesigned power supply. Compared with a 1U rack-mounted server, its maximum power consumption is 330 watts, NEC officials said. The new server offers support for 3.5-inch Serial Attached SCSI and Serial Advanced Technology Attachment disk drives with optional RAID 5 capability.

The new NEC Express5800/140Ba-10 is a four-socket blade server that includes 16 DIMM memory sockets for up to 64G memory, the company said. NEC blade servers are powered by multicore Intel Xeon processors and are specifically designed for data centers.

Both new products will be available next month.
