Compaq’s 'Photon' Comes into the Light
After much anticipation, Compaq’s version of a 1U-high (one 'rack unit') server is finally ready to ship.

1u  DL360 is the only 1U form factor that supports 2-way Pentium III processors, hot plug drives, integrated RAID, two full-length PCI slots and memory expandable up to 4 GB-twice the memory of competing 1U servers. Additionally, it includes new rack mount features such as snap-in rails and simplified cable management, and every server comes standard with Compaq Insight Manager. The ProLiant DL360 also provides an option for the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition, which enables businesses to manage up to thous

Rackmount Server Sales Surge


Rack-optimized servers are reported to have increased their quarter-over-quarter unit sales by over 50%

1u  buying an eight-CPU, 7U-high (1U = one rack unit = 1.75 high), companies like ISPs are choosing to buy 1U-high servers that have one or two CPUs. The incremental cost to add a server is significantly lower for these units, making them desirable for companies expecting healthy growth but still watching the dollars. Whatever the reason, we expect vendors and consumers to increase their focus on rackmount servers in the coming year. User Recommendations Although rackmount servers are not for everyone, the Read More

Dell Updates Its Appliance Line


As part of a far-reaching strategy to grab a large share of Internet infrastructure computing, Dell has announced three new appliance server models.

1u  for remote administration. The 1U PowerApp.cache 100 and 2U PowerApp.cache 200 (3.5-inches) appliance servers are pre-configured with Novell's Internet Caching System application stack. Market Impact With Dell's new professed focus on Internet infrastructure (II), this announcement comes as no surprise. Dell has been dropping hints about server appliances for months. Until this point, Dell customers wanting an appliance would have to buy a PowerEdge 1300 with Novell's ICS caching software pre-loaded onto Read More

Double the ROI of your EVA with iSCSI


Traditionally, 1U and blade servers have not been attached to high-end fibre channel storage due to the cost of adding those servers to the storage area network (SANs). However, by leveraging the HP StorageWorks EVA iSCSI Connectivity Option, you can solve this problem.

Network Engines, Inc. - Double the CPUs for Web Serving


Network Engines, Inc. is a leading vendor of extremely thin rackmount servers used in the rapidly growing area of web serving. In this note, we examine the company and its outlook.

1u  (2 CPUs in a 1U-high rack chassis) and their maintenance and clustering software. It should also be noted that IBM has chosen the WebEngine as the hardware platform for their Netfinity 4000R, whose high-density offering we wrote about in early September. (See TEC News Analysis IBM Announces Netfinity 4000R Super-Thin Server , 9/10/99) NEI will use its high-CPU-density hardware, distribution through IBM, and maintenance processor and software to increase revenue and market share for the near term. For the Read More

Should It Be Renamed 'Unobtainium'?


Reports indicate that Intel will delay the release of its 64-bit 'Itanium' processor yet again.

1u  DS10L is intriguing at 1U (one rack unit), but the available performance figures are unimpressive, given the Alpha's purported power. Microsoft gains in a different way: 64-bit Windows (W64) is not ready, so the Itanium delay helps reduce the gap between hardware availability and OS/application availability. Although Microsoft does not have a reputation for delivering new OSes on time (at least, not to the original schedule), a big gap might provide the Linux community with even more ammunition than it Read More

The Advantages of Row- and Rack-oriented Cooling Architectures for Data Centers


The traditional room-oriented approach to data center cooling has limitations in next-generation data centers. Next-generation data centers must adapt to changing requirements, support high and variable power density, and reduce power consumption and other operating costs. Find out how row- and rack-oriented cooling architectures reduce total cost of ownership (TCO), and address the needs of next-generations data centers.

1u  with blade servers or 1U servers. Rack-oriented: Supplying isolated high density racks, or ultra-high density racks. Another effective use of row and rack-oriented architecture is for density upgrades within an existing low density room-oriented design. In this case, small groups of racks within an existing data center are outfitted with row or rack-oriented cooling systems. The row or rack cooling equipment effectively isolates the new high density racks, making them essentially thermally neutral to th Read More

VA Linux Releases NAS Server


Trying to break into the growing Network-Attached Storage market, Linux-based hardware manufacturer VA Linux has announced the release of its 9205 NAS storage server appliance.

1u  industry's broadest selection of 1U and 2U rackmount Linux servers. Scalable to 2.1 terabytes in an ultradense 8U form factor, the 9205 NAS provides industry-leading storage density - over 10TB in a standard 42U rack - providing the ideal network file sharing solution for e-businesses in ISP data centers, where space is at a premium. The VA Linux 9205 NAS offers seamless file sharing across multiple platforms - Linux, UNIX, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS - enabling transparent file access in heterogeneous n Read More

Hewlett-Packard’s NetServer Division - #3 to Get Ready, or #4 to Go?


Hewlett-Packard is one of the leading computer companies in the world, but they have fallen to fourth place in the Intel-based server market. Will they move back to being a key player, or remain an also-ran?

1u  with the rackable version 1U larger than the Dell PowerEdge 4300, the user ends up losing some density of functionality, which increases cost and TCO. The LH 6000's price/performance is a strong attempt to reverse this trend, but it is only one product - HP needs to ripple this through its entire NetServer line. Looking for one-stop shopping for a heterogeneous environment As mentioned often herein, HP has arguably the most diverse product offering outside of IBM. This allows customers to buy from a man Read More

Management Strategy for Network Critical Physical Infrastructure


Network-critical physical infrastructure includes power, cooling, racks and physical structure, security and fire protection, cabling, management systems, and service. To manage these key pieces of your network’s physical structure, you need to be able to manage devices individually. Find out how an element management solution can help you assimilate and manage the large volume of data necessary for network availability.

1u  device is a dedicated 1U rack mountable appliance for managing physical infrastructure. It provides summary alarm information for building management systems as well as enterprise management systems and also functions as an element manager. Conclusions A best in class NCPI management scheme should incorporate the use of an NCPI element manager. The advantages of utilizing an NCPI element manager are: Cost effective management of the many data points required for appropriate NCPI management. Optimized for Read More
