Intel have just released their next generation dual proc Haswell-EP-based servers. We ordered a batch from our trusty systems integrator. And this morning the servers arrived at our Dallas data center loading dock! Those same servers are now available now on our dedicated server ordering page.
Pricing is from USD 409/m with a base config of 32GB of memory and 2x1TB hard drives.
The Haswell-EP follows on from the older Nehalem-EP, Westmere-EP, and Sandy Bridge-EP systems.
We are currently offering two of the Haswell-EP CPUs. The 6 core E5-2620v3 (2.4Ghz) and the 8 core E5-2630v3 (2.4Ghz).
Benchmarks show the Haswell-EP systems out performing similar clock speed previous gen CPUs by about 20% overall.
The new CPUs come with a new socket so there is a new main board with lots of important performance improvements:
- RimuHosting are currently using the SuperMicro X10DRI mainboard.
- This mainboard is based on Intel's C612 chipset.
- All SATA ports are SSD-loving SataIII 6gbps. Previously only 2 ports were Sata III and the remainder were SataII.
- Memory slots are DDR4. DDR4 runs at a faster speed than DDR3 (we are currently using DDR4-2133). Throughput can be increased by up to 50%. On these servers the memory is ECC registered. DDR4 power consumption is a bit lower leading to cool, reliable systems.
As usual we have options with redundant power supplies on A+B power. We also offer Intel SSD storage; hardware RAID; memory up to 256GB; and private networking.
If you wanted a Haswell-EP server in a location other than Dallas, just email us and we can quote for that in one of our other data centers.
