NEC Touts 40 Percent Performance Boost
NEC Corp. of America launched two new models of its Express5800 Series of industry-standard rack-mount servers, featuring the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 chips. They feature high-speed DDR4 memory, along with 12-Gbps SAS RAID controllers and hard drives to increase performance by about 40 percent over previous models, the company said.
Included with the servers, which operate in ambient temperatures as high as 104 degrees Fahrenheit or 40 degrees Celsius, is NEC's on-board EXPRESSBUILDER system setup utility that supports Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V automatic setup, as well as the EXPRESSCOPE Engine 3 for operational management support.
