Aberdeen Debuts Storage Servers

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. -- Aberdeen LLC proudly announces the next generation of scalable storage servers. Featuring the Intel Xeon® Processor 5500 Series, formerly code named Nehalem, these Aberdeen Stirling storage servers deliver unprecedented processor performance, dynamic scalability and increased storage expansion capabilities.

Aberdeen's Stirling servers anchor the robust array of fully customizable, performance tuned, storage dense servers on the market. By offering servers scalable from 4TB up to 400TB of storage capacity, upgrading to Stirling servers can result in an estimated 8 month return on investment. This latest iteration of the Stirling storage servers, on display at the International Security Conference and Expo in (ISC West) in Las Vegas at the Sands Convention Center in booth #37044 from April 1-3, 2009, will demonstrate the performance of the next generation Intel® 5520 chipset in conjunction with the Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series.

"Typically the industry is seeing exponential storage growth while the critical need for capacity is outpacing the available performance paradigm," says Moshe Ovadya, President of Aberdeen. "Our Stirling servers define affordable storage scalability, while delivering exceptional RAID performance and industry leading processing performance."

Highlighted by the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series, the Aberdeen Stirling storage servers deliver up to 2.25 times better performance than the previous generation. By providing the industry's most dynamic and trusted server architecture, the Stirling continues to enable unprecedented storage capacity. Migrating to the next generation Stirling storage servers from the less efficient legacy single core servers can increase performance by up to 9 times and 9:1 server consolidation reduces operating costs up to 90% yielding an estimated 8 month payback on investment.

"By taking advantage of the new Intel® Xeon® Processor 5500 Series, the Aberdeen Stirling X888 can significantly reduce costs, boost flexibility and achieve a rapid return on investment," said Boyd Davis, general manager, Intel Server Platform Group Marketing.
