NEC Launches New Servers Based on New Intel(R) Xeon(R) E5-2600 v3 Product Family

Tokyo, Sept 17, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today the launch of four new models of its Express5800 Series of industry-standard servers. These new servers feature the Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor E5-2600 v3 product family and include rack, modular and blade models, which improve input/output (I/O) performance and network flexibility for various virtualization environments.

Also, NEC has started to use a common design guideline for the Express5800 Server Series and NEC Storage Series to improve usability for operators and maintenance engineers. The new common design is applied to NEC's new servers and storages released in September and later.

In recent years, the number of virtual machines per server has been increasing as server performance increases. On the other hand, I/O performance could bottleneck when concentrated accesses to the server occur, since the number of network ports and network performance is limited. To address such an issue, the new servers are equipped with more network ports and support various network cards, as well as adopting 12Gb/S SAS RAID controllers and hard drives to strengthen I/O performance.

Key features of the new servers include the following:

1. Increased number of network ports and improved flexibility

The new rack mount servers Express5800/R120f-2M and R120f-1M have four network ports(1) which is double when compared with the previous models. The network ports can be selected from 1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-T+10GBASE-SFP+, and 10GBASE-T as a flexible LOM (LAN on Motherboard) for various user needs.

The new blade server Express5800/B120f has two 10GBASE-T ports and can be expanded up to 8 ports by adding 6 ports, which delivers up to 80Gbps network bandwidth.

The new modular server Express5800/E120f-M has four network ports which is double when compared with the previous model. Also, in spite of high density design, there are two PCI slots which support various options such as RAID cards, InfiniBand adapter, and PCIe SSD adapter for flexible system configurations for virtualization and high performance computing.

2. Performance improvements with the latest processors and DDR4 memory

The new servers equipped with the Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor E5-2600 v3 product family with up to 18 cores(2) and high speed DDR4 memory, enable processing performance to be improved by 40%(3) when compared to previous models.

Furthermore, adopting 12Gb/S SAS RAID controllers and hard drives improves storage I/O performance by as much as 40% (*4) compared to previous models.

3.New common design to improve usability

NEC had previously been providing each product lineup with individually optimized design. On the other hand, system administrators are facing increasing workloads as systems are becoming more complex with a wide variety of platform products. NEC has started to use a common design guideline for the Express5800 Server Series and NEC Storage Series to improve usability for operators and maintenance engineers. The new common design is applied to NEC's new servers and storages released in September and later.

The new design guideline includes:

1. Color for hot-swappable parts
2. Product information indication rule on the front (type of HDD/SSD, capacity, etc.)
3. Adopting mono-color LEDs only
4. LED location and order, unified design of icons
