Azul CentiCore Solution "Delivers the Power of 100 CPUs For the Price of 2 Dell Servers"
A Pre-Configured Integrated Solution For Only $59K
Nov. 30, 2005 07:00 AM
Azul Systems, Inc., has announced the availability of the Azul CentiCore integrated solution, combining the power of multicore architecture with open source software designed to provide SMP processing power at an affordable price for small or medium size enterprises (SMEs). The CentiCore solution is a pre-configured integrated solution comprised of one specially configured 96-way Azul Compute Appliance with 32GB shared memory, two 2-way/1GB Linux servers, an HP ProCurve Gigabit Ethernet switch both from Penguin Computing, and the open source JBoss Application Server and JBoss Portal.
This specially-configured solution enables small and mid-tier enterprises (SMEs) with symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) quality compute resources, while delivering all the benefits of commodity scale-out economics with significantly fewer servers to manage. Without any application level modifications, binary compatibility requirements or operating system dependencies, network attached processing directly addresses the issues faced by IT managers worldwide.
Network attached processing allows businesses to seamlessly tap into Azul compute pools, regardless of existing infrastructure, and solves some of the most difficult challenges typically associated with scaling service-oriented applications such as Java™ or J2EE™ platforms. This fundamentally new approach allows customers to get more out of their existing servers and drive significant cost out of managing their data centers.
The CentiCore solution occupies 8U of standard rack space, consumes 1.75 kilowatts and is priced at less than two similarly configured 4-way DellTM PowerEdgeTM 6850 systems. Through a strategic partnership with JBoss® and Penguin Computing®, Azul Systems® has combined the substantial benefits of open source and multicore technologies. The CentiCore solution is creating a multiplier effect in cost savings making it ideal to address the needs of SMEs or individual projects in large enterprises.
More Bang for the Buck
Seamlessly Inject Into/Out of Existing Environments
Predictable Service Levels;
Control Hidden Commodity Costs
The combined power of multicore and open source introduces a massive multiplier effect that provides unprecedented productivity and cost savings to IT projects. Application development will no longer be constrained by traditional server infrastructure limitations, but can now be tied to business goals and objectives.
