Intel Dual Sandybridge servers avilable

Intel-Sandy-BridgeWe are pleased to announce the immediate availability of powerful new dual processor servers running Intel Sandybridge E5-2620 or E5-2630 CPUs. These impressive machines are built on the popular Supermicro platforms using the X9DR-f motherboard

This new platform will enhance any large scale dedicated or virtualized deployments with access to 24 hyperthreaded cores and support for 128GB RAM or more in a 1U form.

Anandtech have shown about 40% speed boosts over the previous generation E5560 processor for common server loads, up to 70% increases for some computationally intensive tasks.  They say:

Our conclusion about the Xeon E5-2690 2.9 GHz is short and simple: it is the fastest server CPU you can get in a reasonably priced server and it blows the competition and the previous Xeon generation away.

The servers are available for ordering in Dallas at http://rimuhosting.com/order/startorder1.jsp?hom=t-ded-dal in the dual CPU section under "2 x 2012 Sandy Bridge Xeon"

You can configure the server with up to 96GB of memory.  There are dual power supply and redundant power options.  Plus our standard option of private networking.
