Alienware Introduces Hivemind Rack
Alienware, a leading manufacturer of high-performance desktop, notebook,
media center, and professional systems, announced the availability of a brand
new line of single and dual-processor rack servers that provide companies with
powerful, yet affordable solutions for the growing demands of modern business.
Easy to manage and maintain, Alienware's new Hivemind(TM) series of servers
offer performance, scalability, reliability and security.
From the dual-processor-powered Hivemind 2525 and Hivemind 1525 to the
budget-friendly Hivemind 1220, Alienware rack servers are equipped to handle the
critical business demands of customer resource management and data warehouse
applications to messaging and web hosting. Hivemind rack servers feature up to
two high-performance 64-bit Intel(R) Xeon(TM) processors that allow you to run
both 32-bit and 64-bit applications at maximum performance on the same platform.
Providing flexible storage capabilities with plenty of room for expansion,
Hivemind rack servers support up to 2.4TB of SATA or 1.8TB of SCSI hard drive
storage. Hivemind servers also allow you to increase server memory as your
application demands increase, supporting up to 12GB of ECC DDR-2 memory. In
addition, costly, unscheduled downtime is not a concern thanks to memory
mirroring and redundant network interface controllers that help to keep your
systems running and your data protected.
"In response to the increasing number of companies that are relying on
Alienware's award-winning desktops and notebooks for their pressing business
needs, Alienware has developed the next-generation line of Hivemind rack servers
to meet additional demands for government and corporate customers," said Nelson
Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer at Alienware. "In a business world that can be
highly volatile, Alienware's Hivemind servers add a critical measure of
reliability and performance for everything from data warehouse applications to
messaging at a great value."
"Built on a foundation of high performance and reliability and augmented with
innovations such as 64-bit computing and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, Intel
Xeon processors are the preferred platform for servers, and are a natural fit
for Alienware's impressive new Hivemind rack servers," said Phil Brace, general
manager of server platform marketing for Intel's Digital Enterprise Group.
"Working together, Alienware and Intel have produced some of the PC industry's
top systems in recent years, and now that tradition has extended to servers."
Initially the Hivemind series of servers will be available in the US only and
will be launched in Europe shortly.
