New Server Offers High Performance in an Affordable, Compact Form Factor
NAMPA, Idaho, Nov. 15 -- MPC Computers, a wholly owned subsidiary of HyperSpace Communications, Inc. (AMEX:HCO), today announced the new NetFRAME 1420 server, which offers the latest server technology at an affordable price. The NetFRAME 1420 features hot-swap SATA II hard drives and DDR2 memory, and provides small- to medium-sized businesses and government agencies with a cost-effective solution in a 1U rack-mountable form factor. The system also features support for dual core processor technology, which incorporates two processing units into a single processor chip. The NetFRAME 1420, powered by Supermicro, is designed to increase performance in the single processor configuration, especially when running multiple applications.
This new server also features system improvements such as a dual gigabit network interface, PCI Express technology, and LANDesk's Server Management Software. The dual gigabit network interface enables high network bandwidth, while PCI Express technology increases performance with over 3.5 times more bandwidth than previous PCI slots. The NetFRAME 1420's LANDesk Server Management Software offers an easy-to-use interface to manage all of the clients within an IT environment from a single administrative console.
"The NetFRAME 1420 is a full-featured, reliable server in the popular 1U rack-mountable form factor," said Paul Petersen, MPC's vice president of product marketing and development. "It's the ideal choice for use as a Web server, development server, or appliance server for dedicated applications."
