A family of rack-optimized highly integrated server systems designed for flexible, high-density server solutions
Intel® Server Systems SR1500AL, SR1550AL, and SR2500AL are intended to provide different levels of power and cooling redundancy and flexible storage solutions including 2.5"/3.5" SATA or SAS drives, as well as support for both tape drives and optical drives. These systems designed for space-constrained environments are optimized in either a 1U, 1U with redundant power or a 2U form-factor. The 1U systems (Intel® Server Systems SR1500AL, SR1550AL) are designed for organizations running front-end Internet, Web-hosting, and high performance computing (HPC) applications. The 2U system (Intel® Server System SR2500AL) can handle more demanding departmental database, datacenter and other high-transaction applications.
Features and benefits: - Multi-Core processing. Multiplies server performance by doubling processing ability on a single chip, without increasing power consumption. - Dual independent bus architecture. Enables dedicated data flow to each processor, maximizing system performance. - Fully buffered DIMM memory. Increases capacity and memory bandwidth to keep pace with the processor and I/O performance enhancements. Intel® Extended Memory 64 Technology Extends the amount of available server memory. - Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT). A platform innovation that helps get network data to and from server applications faster, while consuming far fewer CPU cycles. - Intel® Virtualization Technology. Turns a physical server into multiple systems (virtual machines) allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run inside a single platform. - Execute Disable Bit. Reduces exposure to viruses and prevents harmful software from executing on the server or network. - Enhanced Intel® SpeedStep® Technology. Allows processors to adjust their operating speeds to meet varying performance needs, while balancing power consumption.
