The NEC FlexPower meets their expectations perfectly since it combines all server, storage, network and administration functions, making the IT system simpler and more flexible on a reduced budget. Furthermore, the NEC FlexPower integrates perfectly with server or client workstation backup and virtualisation solutions.
The launch of this new version is the result of a long-standing partnership with Intel®, in conjunction with the release of the Westmere Intel Xeon series 5600 processors.
NEC will also be present at the Intel® roadshow, which will be held in Paris on April 8th.
It is possible to increase FlexPower capacity on request: storage and blade servers can increase in number according to needs. This enables the product to support the company as it develops.
Its evolutionary, modular design lets you add blades (up to 6) and storage (up to 14 2.5” disks, giving up to 8.4Tb* of raw storage) according to the intended use.
* Available from the end of April
NEC Computers’ FlexPower offers simplified operation at a lower cost.
Administration is simplified with its “FlexPower Manager” software, which enables the system to be managed remotely using a simple web interface. The management system is fully integrated, simple and intuitive: the administrator can see all components and control them remotely using the console, just as if they were in front of the system!
Very practical for small businesses, this solution is silent and mobile: its sound footprint is reduced (equivalent to a PC) with its optional "ActiveSilencer” case.
Note that its low electricity consumption enables you to reduce energy costs by 30%!
The new version of NEC FlexPower gets the most out of the power of the new generation of Intel® Xeon® Series 5600 multi core processors!
This solution contains up to 6 computer modules, each fitted with 2 Intel Xeon six or four core processors making it both more powerful, more frugal in terms of electricity consumption and able to strengthen virtualisation and consolidation capabilities.
With the NEC FlexPower, businesses can see an increase in performance 63% higher for pure calculation and up to 50% for database or ERP type business applications while consolidating administration costs and strengthening security.
The level of performance is optimised with:
The NEC FlexPower solution is available from 6,395 Euros (recommended price).
