Acer: Management Tools For The New Servers
Taiwan-based Acer introduced servers to match the new Intel processors as well as management tools to improve data center flexibility.
Acer said its F2 line of servers, slated to ship early second quarter, will have improved operating system support including mainstream and open-source platforms. The management tools also now include such features as remote BIOS/firmware updates and power monitoring.
For both data center and SMB users, Acer has expanded its Smart Server Manager with a power management tool kit which lets customers run power capping commands across Acer servers to give each server the most optimal power-performance needed for mission-critical applications.
