SAN DIEGO, Calif., Sept. 11 -- Cirrascale Corporation, a premier developer of build-to-order, independent blade-based computing and storage infrastructure for conventional and modular data centers, announced its popular line of blade servers and rackmount offerings -- the VB1400 Series, GB1400 Series and RM1400 Series -- have been updated to support the Intel Xeon processor E5-1600 v2 and E5-2600 v2 product families. The highly anticipated processors, formerly codenamed Ivy Bridge-EP, are part of a planned technology refresh program announced last month by Cirrascale specifically aimed at High Performance Computing, content creation, and cloud computing environments to assist customers in refreshing their aging install bases.
“We’re anxious to start helping our customers experience the performance increase from these new processors,” said David Driggers, CEO, Cirrascale Corporation. “With up to 12 processing cores and 30 megabytes of cache, these drop-in, socket-compatible processors can deliver up to 50% more performance over the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family. Cirrascale is helping data center operators to facilitate a painless, easily manageable upgrade path to deliver these benefits fast.”
The Intel Xeon processor E5-1600 v2 and E5-2600 v2 product families are built on Intel’s latest advanced processor 22nm microarchitecture. The latest microarchitecture supports key advancements such as the Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 offering two times the performance of previous-generation turbo technology while the Intel Advanced Vector Extensions enables up to two times better technical computing. Additionally, Intel Intelligent Power Technology helps to automatically regulate power consumption to combine industry-leading energy efficiency with intelligent performance that adapts to workloads.
“Cirrascale’s support for the Intel Xeon processor E5-1600 v2 and E5-2600 v2 product families shows their continued commitment to helping customers achieve high levels of performance in their data centers,” said Shannon Poulin, vice president and general manager of Intel Datacenter Marketing Group. “In addition to advanced data center technology such as Cirrascale’s unique Vertical Cooling Technology, these new processors provide their customers with substantial performance per watt increases, reduced I/O latency, and increased security.”
The Cirrascale VB1400, GB1400 and RM1400 blade server and rackmount product lines are immediately available to order and will be shipping subject to the announced component availability. Licensing opportunities will also be available immediately to both customers and partners.
