SAN DIEGO, Calif., Aug. 21 -- Cirrascale Corporation, a premier developer of build-to-order, independent blade-based computing and storage infrastructure for conventional and modular data centers, announced its integration and technology refresh program plans for customers and licensees looking to move to Intel’s future Intel Xeon E5-1600 v2 and E5-2600 v2 product families. The highly anticipated processors, formerly codenamed Ivy Bridge-EP, will be part of a planned technology refresh program, developed by Cirrascale, specifically aimed at High Performance Computing, content creation, and cloud computing environments to assist customers in refreshing their aging install bases.
“Today’s applications are demanding more, and companies are struggling to do it all with less,” said David Driggers, CEO, Cirrascale Corporation. “With the upcoming Intel Xeon E5-1600 v2 and E5-2600 v2 product launch, we are able to provide our customers with higher core counts and faster processor speeds, as well as the continued flexibility to deploy the most optimized compute and storage solutions for increased performance and savings. The technology refresh program will be targeted specifically to facilitate a painless, easily manageable upgrade path to deliver these benefits fast.”
The future Intel Xeon E5-1600 v2 and E5-2600 v2 product families are built on Intel’s latest advanced processor microarchitecture based on its 22nm Tri-Gate manufacturing process. The latest microarchitecture supports Intel OS Guard, Intel Secure Key, and Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller Virtualization.
Additional details and information regarding Cirrascale’s full support of the future Intel Xeon E5-1600 v2 and E5-2600 v2 product families will be released upon official announcement from Intel later this year. Products supporting the future processors will be immediately available to order at launch and will be shipping subject to the announced component availability. Licensing opportunities will also be available immediately to both customers and partners.
