Prices Start From: 1,499 ex VAT

Leading manufacturer NEC Computers (UK) has announced two new additions to its award winning range of Express5800 servers, the 120Rd-1 and 120Rf-2. These two way Intel Xeon rack-optimised servers provide optimum levels of performance and expandability in an ultra-slim format.

“The 120Rd-1 and 120Rf-2 offer enhanced flexibility and capacity for future expansion,” commented Paul Evans business development director of NEC Computers (UK). “With their ultra slim design and enhanced technological capabilities these new servers are ideal for workgroups and departments requiring extensive power and reliability in space constrained environments.”
Both servers provide enhanced I/O capabilities and optimal performance with a 533MHz Front Side Bus, a maximum of 12GB of DDR266 SDRAM and embedded dual Ultra 320 SCSI and Gigabit Ethernet controllers. The 120Rd-1 and 120Rf-2 are integrated with an Intel E7501 chipset and feature up to two Intel Xeon processors running at speeds of up to 2.8Ghz.

The NEC Express5800/120Rd-1 is a (1U) rack-optimised server perfect for corporate customers who require a front-end Web application hosting solution or a network infrastructure server. The 120Rd-1 also provides three 1” internal hot swap disk bays, (up to 219GB) and several external disk subsystem options.

The NEC Express5800/120Rf-2 is a (2U) high-density rack-optimised server designed to deliver scaleable performance, flexibility and easy expansion. The 120Rf-2 features up to seven internal hot-swap disk drives and six PCI-X slots. To maximise the server’s uptime NEC has provided the 120Rf-2 with Chipkill memory, redundant power supply and fans as well as a broad range of RAID options.

As standard the Express5800/120Rd-1 and 120Rf-2 are provided with the ESMPRO Management Suite with integrated Management Workstation Application (MWA). This built-in solution offers remote emergency access and control of server resources (via LAN or standard modem connection). The ESMPRO Management Suite facilitates quick response to critical issues and provides tools for proactive planning and server administration, reducing the risk of downtime or failure. Both of these servers come with ExpressBuilder set-up and configuration software for easy and comprehensive system installation.
