Intel Xeon E5-2600: Server Vendors, Others Roll Out Red Carpet


Hitachi Data Systems: More Information To Come

HDS, not wanting to miss out on the Intel Xeon E5-2600 launch, promised it will soon unveil its own family of enterprise blade and rack servers based on the new processors.

The upcoming servers will likely continue to be a part of HDS's converged data center strategy which combines Hitachi storage and servers with industry-standard networking systems into pre-configured solutions specifically targeting such applications as Microsoft Exchange 2010, SAP HANA, and VMware.

HDS's existing server family (as seen in the photo) features logical partition (LPAR) technology, an embedded hardware virtualization feature typically found on mainframes which the company said improves resource optimization while decreasing overhead costs.
