MARLBORO, Mass., Dec. 2 -- Egenera Inc. today announced the general availability of four new Egenera Processing Blade (pBlade) offerings based on the new 6-Core Intel Xeon processor E7400 series (previously codenamed, "Dunnington" by Intel). All of the new 6-Core Intel Xeon processor pBlades are certified to support Microsoft Windows, RedHat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise, and Oracle Enterprise Linux operating systems, providing customers with unmatched choice and flexibility.
Populated with four Intel Xeon E7450 processors at a speed of 2.4GHz and compatible with all existing Egenera systems, the new pBlades come in 32, 64, 96 and 128GB memory configurations in addition to being capable of supporting up to 192GB in the future. Built for enhanced virtualization capabilities, the Intel Xeon processor E7450 reduces costs and boosts system utilization. Joint customers will also benefit from achieving greater density with fewer cooling challenges due to the space saving and energy efficient build of the two technologies.
"Egenera continues to offer customers the greatest choice and flexibility -- in addition to the most powerful x86 blades in a standard 1U form factor -- in the industry," said Pete Manca, executive vice president of engineering and CTO of Egenera. "Leveraging Intel's latest advanced technologies, the newest Egenera pBlades enable businesses to run their dynamic datacenters even more efficiently than ever before."
Processing Blade modules within the Egenera integrated system are diskless and stateless, enabling automated allocation, repurposing and failover, since any processing blade can assume the identity of any other server. Egenera integrated systems combine these stateless blades with PAN Manager software by Egenera, enabling customers to automatically align computing resources to application requirements and scale performance dynamically.
