PENGUIN:INTEL XEON 1U LINUX SERVER.

Penguin Computing Inc. has announced the immediate availability of its next generation Relion class 1U server.

The Relion 140 features the latest in technology from Intel. Built around the Intel E7500 Chipset, the Relion 140 supports dual Intel Xeon processors and DDR SDRAM in the small 1.75 inch tall 1U form factor. "This server represents the absolute latest technology in scalable system computing," said Sam Ockman, CEO for Penguin Computing. "A new level of performance is now available in a 1U rackmount server, and Penguin Computing's new Relion 140 is at the forefront of this evolution."

The Xeon processors in the Relion 140 are available in pairs at speeds in excess of 2.0GHz and with 6 open memory slots, the server can accommodate up to 6GB of fast PC2100 Double Date Rate (DDR) SDRAM. The storage subsystem is comprised of 3 hot-swap SCSI drives for up to 219GB of hard disk capacity. The Relion 140 also benefits from two Intel network ports on the motherboard -- one 10/100MBps interface and one gigabit interface. With the proliferation of 1000MBps speed networks, the Relion 140's on-board gigabit port leaves the PCI slot free to be used for a RAID Card, an external SCSI card for a tape backup unit, or an additional high-end network/storage interface.

The Relion 140 is targeted for customers requiring the highest 1U density available, coupled with the high availability features of the RAID disk subsystem. Such beneficiaries include Internet infrastructure customers who require the processing of large amounts of web traffic, plus Fortune 1000 companies building their internal networks, application and database systems, or external web presences. The performance of the dual Xeon processors with large amounts of fast RAM will also suit the exceptional performance needs of clustered computing customers in the scientific and educational communities.
