NEC Launches Scalable Enterprise Server Utilizing the Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E7 v2 Product Family

Tokyo, Feb 19, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) today announced the global release of its Express5800/A2000 Series, a Scalable Enterprise Server developed with the Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E7 v2 Product Family, the latest CPU containing up to 15 cores.

The A2000 series is ideal for systems that perform high-speed operations and require mass storage, such as mission-critical tasks and large-scale virtualized IT infrastructures, as it offers superior performance, high reliability and flexible scalability.

"In recent years, there is increasing demand for reliable, high-performance, non-stop processing of enormous amounts of data for the IT infrastructure supporting security systems for social infrastructure, banking systems and management systems for business orders and production. At the same time, demand for open, high-performance and highly reliable IT infrastructure has been increasing, as there is a growing need for the processing of big data, such as forecasting market trends and analyzing customer profiles. This new product meets all of these needs, including a full range of demands for mission-critical use," said Kimihiko Fukuda, senior vice president, NEC Corporation.

Key features of the Express5800/A2000 Series are as follows:

1.Up to 4 CPUs (60 cores) and 2 times more powerful

The Express5800/A2000 Series is 2 times more powerful(*) than NEC's conventional servers, as it contains up to 4 CPUs belonging to the Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E7 v2 Product Family. It also supports an in-memory database that processes data at high speed using large-capacity memory, as it can accommodate up to 4TB of memory, which is twice the memory capacity of conventional servers. Further, the new server is equipped with up to 16 PCI-Express 3.0 slots (8x and 4x), delivering real-time analysis infrastructure that simultaneously supports network, storage and flash storage.

2.Responds to CPU failures and memory failures with NEC's original design that ensures the system continues operating

The reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) functions achieved with NEC's EXPRESSSCOPE ENGINE SP3 service processor technology and firmware technology enables enhanced monitoring of CPU cores and autonomous monitoring of memory when signs of failure are detected.

3.Improves operating efficiency by optimizing CPU resources and adopting the highly efficient 80 PLUS R Platinum certified, highly efficient power supply

The new server is equipped with the capacity on-demand function that allows the efficient use of CPU resources. When it is necessary to scale the performance due to increased amounts of work, CPU cores can be added online without suspending the system. Moreover, use of a highly efficient 80 PLUSR Platinum certified power supply significantly reduces power utilization when compared to conventional servers.

Based on its Mid-term Management Plan 2015, the NEC Group is working towards the safety, security, efficiency and equality of society. Going forward, NEC aims to develop solutions for a wide range of social issues, as a company that creates value for society through the promotion of its "Solutions for Society," which provide advanced social infrastructure utilizing ICT.
