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
previous limitation of four CPUs for the Intel architecture.) The PE 8450 is based on Intel's OCPRF100 server (also known as Saber ), which Dell has modified to improve its serviceability and to add an improved peripheral bay. This product is geared toward the enterprise computing segment. As with most enterprise-class servers, the 8450 must be racked, and needs other hardware (primarily disk drives) to support its configuration. This product is aimed at the large datacenter/data warehouse environments,

IBM Announces Netfinity 4000R Super-Thin Server
IBM to ship its 4000R server, a thin server targeted at ISPs and ASPs. The 4000R sets a new standard for CPU density, fitting two Pentium IIIs in a one-rack
a new level of CPU density at two per U or 84 per rack (42U-high) - 75% more than the previous density mark of 8 CPUs in a 7U height, or 48 CPUs per rack. In addition, this server, based on the Network Engines WebEngine product, can be clustered up to 256 nodes. The result of this could be a RAIS - Redundant Array of Inexpensive Servers. At a time when everyone is jumping on the appliance server (a/k/a thin server ) bandwagon, this product has the potential of having a tremendous impact for
What’s All This Benchmark Stuff, Anyway?
Vendors love to quote benchmarks in their product literature, press releases, and any place they think someone will use the numbers to make a buying decision
SPECmark SPECfp95 Workstation Measures CPU floating-point performance AIM Windows NT Server General performance; now defunct AIM Unix Server General performance; now defunct ServerBench (retired) Server Performance of application server hardware and OS in a client/server environment TPS Which Ones to Check? Customers need to know which benchmarks to use for comparing various applications. Shown below is a correlation table of some standard tasks to various benchmarks. A check mark
IBM Netfinity Server Division
IBM’s Intel-based Netfinity servers currently hold third place in the server wars with Dell and Compaq. What are their chances for improving their position?
vertical space, density of CPUs and general functionality is important. Netfinity servers in general are larger than similar offerings from competitors, leading to reduced density of CPUs and functionality in a rack. In years past, IBM was the 800-pound gorilla in the computer world. In recent years, they have suffered some stunning defeats, including the effective collapse of the Aptiva (home PC) product line. IBM is still strong in a number of areas, such as the proprietary AS/400, storage, software
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
and Dell's 4U-high, four CPU systems its smallest four CPU system is twice the size of those products. Customers who need a lot of CPUs in a small space will find this a negative. 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
Compaq, Dell Announce Eight-Way Intel Servers
Compaq and Dell have announced eight-CPU Intel servers, shipping in late August/early September.
their new eight-way (8 CPUs) servers, based on Intel's Profusion chipset. (HP and IBM expected to ship by the end of September.) Early performance figures show an approximate doubling of performance (relative to four-way), and a narrowing of the gap between Unix and Intel/NT servers. Market Impact This means that Intel/NT servers are starting to move into the performance band historically owned by Unix servers. As this trend continues, non-Intel servers will have a tougher time gaining customers in

McVey - June 28, 2000 Event Summary Waterloo, Ontario based Descartes Systems Group reported record revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2001 ended April 30, 2000. Focused on building its transaction-based revenue model, Descartes still finds profits out of reach. License and network revenue totaled $8.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2001, an increase of 138% from $3.7 million in the first
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.
Dell believes that a single-CPU system is sufficiently powerful to drive xSP-type applications, with the bottleneck being the network. IBM believes that for heavy-duty Web applications, dual-CPU systems provide a more robust and powerful infrastructure. We advise customers to test these contentions for themselves before committing large amounts of money to revamping (or building up) their infrastructure. For example, back-end loaded (e.g., calculation/processing-intense) sites might benefit more from a

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.
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
IBM’s Newest NUMA-Q Server to Handle 64 Intel CPUs

Technology: An Evaluation of Requirements and Solutions Introduction Technological change impacts politics as well as business. The recent United States Presidential election sheds light on problems that can arise from the use of punch card ballots, an obsolete technology. Some observers are suggesting high-tech alternatives such as the Internet, while others viscerally distrust computer technology and would eschew it altogether. These issues are similar to the ones that businesses confront every
Compaq and Samsung in Deal to Save Alpha
Compaq Computer Corp. and South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. are planning to announce Monday a preliminary agreement to spend $500 million to advance
be numbered as a CPU alternative to Intel. (See TEC Technollogy Research Note: Compaq's Alpha - Moving Toward Its Omega? August, 1999) Thus, it behooves Compaq to commit fully to making this effort a success. If Compaq is not willing to do what it takes to make Alpha a cost-effective alternative, as well as a volume player in the marketplace, then it should either sell off the remainder of Alpha to someone who will commit, or cut their losses.

This puts Dell Computer and Hewlett-Packard at a disadvantage, since they use the Saber board set as the core of their servers. Compaq Computer will have both a short-term advantage and potential disadvantage. The disadvantage arises from the possibility of the marketplace not differentiating between the
