NEC

NEC Corporation has announced the global release of a new Express5800/A2000 Series of enterprise servers for Windows and Linux operating systems with the latest Intel Xeon Processor E7 v3 Family (up to 18 CPU cores), suitable for mission critical systems and processing Big Data.

These new servers enhance memory controller features, memory sparing functions and memory mirroring functions (Address Based Memory Mirroring, which enables efficient use of memory space), making them ideally suited for the growing needs of Big Data processing and sophisticated social infrastructure, while providing reliable and stable system operations.

“In recent years, there is an increasing demand for reliable, high-performance, non-stop processing of enormous amounts of data for the IT infrastructure that supports, for example, security systems for social infrastructure, banking systems and management systems for business operations. There is also a growing need for Big Data processing in order to forecast market trends and to analyze customer profiles. In order to respond to these demands the importance of memory space that can perform real-time processing with high reliability is rapidly increasing,” said Tomoyasu Nishimura, General Manager, IT Platform Division, NEC Corporation. “In addition to improving the availability and reliability of memory space, these new products are equipped with functionality that enables efficient use of memory and caters to a wide range of needs.”
