Finally even the rule of thumb – a server for a service – considered but until recently guarantor for a robust and flexible IT infrastructure. Now, the conventional server farms are challenged by a small thumbnail server. Because the maxim of isolated applications can implement much simpler and resource-saving Central virtualization server system in a compact box. So what is exactly behind these new technologies and which reasons to use? Using virtualization technology, a virtual machine can be used to for almost any application. The systems will be decoupled from each other and isolated from each other together can be operated on a single physical server.
Programs and their data are also abstracted from the hardware resources. A central server system resources form a pool, which distributes its resources to the programs according to the needs. For example, promises the model Intel modular server in combination with VMware flexible scalable compute and storage technologies, space-saving combined in a single central server system, which are unparalleled in price, performance, and reliability on the market. The chassis modular server can one with up to 6 compute modules or blades are fitted. Every individual compute module is a stand-alone server that has its own CPU and memory. The Intel modular server compute modules work with up to two latest Nehalem CPUs with Intel Xeon 55xx quad-core processors up to 2.8 GHz and 8 MB of cache and fast DDR3 RAM memory with up to 1333 MHz. The integrated storage offers a maximum data throughput of 6 GB / s SAS technology and usage of 2 SAS storage controllers and is thus equal to the classic and expensive SAN systems with fibre channel connectivity. Another highlight is the up to 96 GB per compute modules expandable RAM memory.
