NEC COMPUTERS INC. ANNOUNCES EXPRESS5800/120RC-2.
"With the new service provider platform, NEC Computers continues to bring comprehensive server solutions to ASPs/ISPs and e-businesses by helping to simplify the decision-making process, while continuing to offer customers a variety of choices," said Stephen Blanchette, vice president and general manager of NEC Computers Inc.'s Server Business Unit. "The service provider platform brings together the key IT elements that our customers need to help them operate and grow their businesses cost-effectively, including high-performing server solutions, management tools, service and support."
NEC Computers' new service provider platform features the dual-processor-capable Express5800/120Rc-2 server, a 2U rack system designed for superior levels of uptime. The system is powered by Intel Pentium III processors and supports a range of operating systems, including Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server, and Red Hat Linux. Key service-provider platform options include an industry-standard APC rack (42U), which fits up to 21 Express5800/120Rc-2 servers, for a maximum of 42 processors; EMC CLARiiON FC5300 high-performance fibre channel storage; a factory hotload option for Red Hat Linux 6.2; and an APC uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for emergency battery backup.
The Express5800/120Rc-2 server is designed to deliver scaleable performance, outstanding reliability and maximum uptime, with high-availability features including hot-swap hard-disk drives, power supplies and redundant cooling. A broad range of RAID board options is available to promote reliability and data integrity.
As part of the service provider platform, NEC Computers also offers two new installation services: the Rack Installation Service and NOS Installation Service. The rack installation service includes assembly and installation of all rack components and connection of the server into the customers' networks, verification of the factory installed network operating system functionality, and diagnostic testing to verify hardware integrity and operability. The NOS installation service provides on-site installation and basic testing for selected operating systems Windows NT, Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server, Novell NetWare, SCO OpenServer and UnixWare that are not pre-installed at the factory.
All Express5800 servers are shipped standard with the ESMPRO Management Suite software with integrated Management Workstation Application (MWA), which enables system administrators to continuously monitor, analyze, and manage client/server information and operation throughout the network via LAN or WAN. The ESMPRO Management Suite software facilitates quick response to critical issues and provides tools for proactive planning and server administration, which reduces the risk of system downtime or failure. The updated EXPRESSBUILDER setup and configuration software is designed to enable seamless system installation.
All products are available today through select resellers and direct from NEC Computers. The NEC Express5800/120Rc-2 server is available for sale now with system prices beginning at $3,469(1).
NEC Computers has also introduced the Express5800/120Ed system, an architecturally advanced dual-processor-capable Intel Pentium III-based server. An economically viable choice for growing workgroups and small businesses, the Express5800/120Ed server offers high-reliability features, and comprehensive remote management capabilities to enhance system control of server operations.
