Dell's 8-CPU Intel Servers Increasing Its Enterprise Focus


Dell began shipping its eight-CPU Intel server, the PowerEdge 8450, in late September. This comes on the heels of Compaq's shipment of its ProLiant 8000 and 8500.

The PowerEdge 8450 is part of the next generation of Intel servers (along with offerings from Compaq, HP, IBM, and others) which utilize the Profusion chipset. (This chipset allows servers to break through the previous limitation of four CPUs for the Intel architecture.) The PE 8450 is based on Intel's OCPRF100 Read More

HP’s LT 6000r Six-CPU Server


HP has re-entered the enterprise computing race with the release of its LT 6000r, a six-CPU server with improved performance and excellent transactional price/performance.

(Hewlett-Packard also released their NetServer LH 6000 at the same time. The LH 6000 is also a six-CPU server, but is more focused on internal disk expansion than on packing a bunch of CPUs into a rack.) The NetServer LT 6000r is aimed at those users who want to increase the number of computes per square foot of floor space. As floor space becomes more Read More

It Takes More Than a Fast CPU to Rule the Web


Compaq Computer Corporation, desperate to get some kind of high-end UNIX benefit from its ill-conceived acquisition of Digital Equipment Corp., has announced its massive, 32-CPU capable GS series of Alpha systems. But, as was the case with Digital, Compaq marketing seems overly concerned with CPU - not system - performance.

Krause - June 26, 2000 Event Summary NEW YORK and LONDON, May 16, 2000 - Compaq Computer Corporation today announced an aggressive attack on the $32 billion high-end UNIX market with the worldwide launch of its new AlphaServer GS series systems. Targeting dot-coms as well as customers in telecommunications, high-performance technical computing, healthcare and financial services, the new AlphaServers are optimized to Read More

IBM's Four-CPU Wintel-Based Rack Servers High Performance, High Cost


IBM's four-CPU servers, the Netfinity 5500 M20 and 7000 M10, yield top notch web-focused benchmark figures, but also very high price/performance figures for mainstream applications.

Vendor Recommendations 5500 M20: The 5500 M20 is a fairly standard, middle-of-the-road system, with the exception of its unusual size. IBM should consider reducing the system chassis to 7U. Since it takes a year or so to redesign a chassis, IBM should play up the performance aspects of the 5500 (in the meantime), an area where Read More

An Introduction to Load Balancing


Is it possible for a business to ensure uninterrupted, secure, and high-performance access to network-based business applications and web sites? Yes. With network load balancers, user requests are evenly distributed among available servers so that individual servers do not become overwhelmed. Learn about the basics of load balancing and how it can improve the performance and security of your business applications.

cpu heatsink  have different requirements for CPU usage, I/O throughput, etc., it is possible to increase eficiency by using some servers to handle transactions, and others to provide storage or other functions. Also, with Layer 7 request switching, certain users can be directed to higher-power servers to provide the highest service level. Global server load balancing In addition to enhancing load balancing with Layer 7 request switching, organizations can beneit from class server load balancing (GSLB) across the Read More

Clientele CRM.NET Suite Gains Scalability, Smart Client from the .NET Framework and XML Web Services


When The Clientele Group of Epicor Software Corporation was faced with scalability and performance limits in their CRM software, they redesigned their application around the Microsoft® .NET Framework. A server architecture based on SQL Server™ 2000 and XML Web services removes their scalability limits, and supports multiple client applications. A smart client built with Windows® Forms gives customer support personnel a responsive application that is easy to deploy and update. A Web portal built with ASP.NET Web Forms gives authorized customers access to the same records as customer support sees internally. The new architecture can support 500 users on a single dual-CPU server, and offers many ways to scale up and out.

Best Practices for a Data Warehouse on Oracle Database 11g


Companies are recognizing the value of an enterprise data warehouse (EDW) that provides a single 360-degree view of the business. But to ensure that your EDW performs and scales well, you need to get three things right: the hardware configuration, the data model, and the data loading process. Learn how designing these three things correctly can help you scale your EDW without constantly tuning or tweaking the system.

cpu heatsink  components - from the CPU to the disks - are orchestrated to work together to guarantee the maximum possible IO throughput. But how do you go about sizing such a system? You must first understand how much throughput capacity is required for your system and how much throughput each individual CPU or core in your configuration can drive. Both pieces of information can be determined from an existing system. However, if no environment specific values are available, a value of approximately 200MB/sec IO Read More

In addition to the product wins for AMD, the PowerNow! technology is another example of AMD taking the fight to Intel. Intel announced Read More

Will Intel Take a Loss on Each CPU, but Make It Up in Volume?


There are reports that Dell may buy AMD’s Spitfire chip. If the reports are true, then look for competition to produce lower prices.

cpu heatsink  chose Intel for the CPU in its upcoming X-Box gaming console. If Intel decides to play the price-cut card, this will put a damper on Intel's profit expectations, since Dell now occupies the top position in U.S. PC sales, having passed Compaq last year. Because of the bus speed at which the Spitfire is expected to operate (200 MHz), its performance should exceed that of the Intel Celeron - the chip against which it's designed to compete. If AMD can post great performance numbers against Celeron, and keep Read More

In addition to the battery life issue, Crusoe utilizes Mobile Linux , a scaled-down version of the increasingly popular Linux OS, and something Transmeta calls Code Morphing software, which allows the processor to be compatible with x86-based applications. Microsoft does not expect the Tablet to ship until 2003 Market Impact This is interesting on a number of Read More

Compaq's Alpha - Moving Toward Its Omega?


Compaq's powerful Alpha processor is reaching a crucial juncture - will Compaq expend the effort necessary for it to challenge Intel's dominance, or is it destined to become another Betamax (great technology with no market)?

cpu heatsink  a generational leap in CPU (and system) performance. In addition to the higher performance of the chip itself, Alpha is based on a 64-bit architecture, providing (according to Digital/Compaq) far superior performance to the 16-bit and 32-bit architectures in use by the Intel x86 architectures. The other strength is Alpha's ability to run multiple OSes: Windows NT, Unix (Compaq's Tru64 Unix ), Linux, and VMS. Although Alpha-based products exist in multiple market spaces, their greatest success so far has Read More

Dell's High-End Rackmount Servers - Challenging Compaq's Wintel Dominance


Dell Computer Corporation has shaken up the PC Server market, in three years moving from the #5 US market share position to a solid #2 (and #3 worldwide) - and has set its sights on #1 Compaq. This note assesses its strengths and weaknesses in the ever-growing and increasingly important rackmount server marketplace.

cpu heatsink  Customers who want significant CPU power in a small box will find the 6350 a good choice. The 6300 is better suited to high-performance and general-purpose computing, although its price/performance numbers need to improve. Dell consistently receives high reliability marks from industry surveys, which is good, since their customer service strategy is less clear than Compaq's. Because the 6300 maxes out at only eight 1.0 HDDs, the customer should consider using this point as a bargaining tool when Read More
