The Planet Adds New High-Performance Xeon Server to Portfolio : Optimized for Private and Virtual Rack Environments

HOUSTON (PRWEB) November 19, 2008

With a robust 5000-sequence Xeon processor, the server easily supports database, e-mail and Web server applications. Available in both SATA and SAS configurations, the Xeon 5405 is the only single-processor Planet Alpha server that holds up to six storage drives. It is equipped with RAM capacity up to 32GB, with larger configurations available that provide customers the flexibility to design the solution that best meets their requirements.

"Customers depend on us to offer the technology that best meets their business needs," said Urvish Vashi, general manager for dedicated servers. "They have expressed a requirement for a powerful and reasonably priced single-processor server, and the Xeon 5405 fits the bill perfectly. It provides increased server storage capacity – always a precious commodity – which eliminates the extra processor they often don't need. With this new offering, we're expanding on our promise to give customers the power to choose the solution that's right for them."

About Xeon 5405

The new Xeon 5405 offers a rich feature set:

Increased storage capacity: The single-processor, multi-core server supports up to six 1TB SATA drives or six 300GB SAS drives. It also supports RAID 5 and RAID 10 cards for businesses with additional storage or redundancy requirements.

Expanded memory: Each server has up to 32GB of RAM, with larger configurations available for advanced environments.

Easy upgrade path: It features the same chassis as Dual Xeon dual-processor servers, offering an easy transition path for customer growth.

Suitable for multi-server environments: The server is available as a single hosted solution, or it can be added to an existing virtual or private rack environment.
