Tatung Continues Push into UK Server Market with Dual 64-bit Intels
* Two Intel Nocona processors and 9 disks in rack-mount server
* Channel opportunity for high performance computing applications

Swindon, England – 16 November 2004 - Tatung Server, which made its UK debut market last month, has launched a dual-processor 64-bit Intel Nocona rack-mount server. The high performance Tatung TSS-2552, available immediately, offers ultra-high power server technology in a 2u rack server, with twin Nocona processors up to 3.6Ghz.

The new server lines up with Tatung Server's first product, introduced earlier this month, a blade server based on dual Opteron processors. "Our intention is to deliver ultra-high performance servers and blade servers to the UK market and this launch underlines our technical ability, using two of the latest 64-bit processors to achieve superb performance," said Mark Burnett, UK Sales Manager for Tatung Server. "We believe we can offer better price/performance than any other manufacturer, drawing on our expertise of over ten years design and manufacture of server products."

The new dual-Nocona server, available through Tatung Server's UK distribution channel, can accommodate eight/nine, hot swappable SerialATA/ Ultra320 SCSI drives, and up to 24Gb of DDR RAM. Six PCI slots are provided for expansion with a range of full height and low-profile cards, and twin Gigabit LAN connections ensure wide connection to the outside world.
E-commerce-applications, ERP, CRM and database applications will capitalise on the increased performance, scalability and availability of the new server solution. Also applications like CAD, commercial and financial applications will benefit from the higher data throughput by receiving results faster. The increasing demand on 64-Bit applications is seamlessly supported by Tatung's latest server technology.
