Strategic partnership with leading systems builder to fuel further expansion

In conjunction with today’s launch of AMD’s highly anticipated (Shanghai) Enhanced Quad Core 45nm processors, Boston Limited, a UK based system builder and distributor are delighted to announce the launch of our award winning Igloo GP platforms.

Boston’s highly innovative Igloo 3000GP 1U server solution features an astonishing 16x AMD® Opteron™ 2382 processor cores and arrives within a highly innovative Supermicro® Twin 1U ™ chassis design that features two motherboards within a single 1U enclosure, utilizing the nVidia MCP55-Pro Chipset.

“Our new Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ processor is designed to deliver great performance, great power efficiency and tremendous value to our customers in a time when IT budgets are being cut. With the new 3000GP rack server Boston Limited has an innovative platform in its portfolio which addresses exactly the market needs and what the reviewers from PC Pro confirm,” says Ian McNaughton, Senior Manager Product and Platform Marketing EMEA AMD.

“Through working closely in partnership with partners such as Supermicro® and AMD® over the past few months, Boston have been able to ship a validated platform to market immediately from launch date. With our rapidly increasing market share within the HPC (high performance computing), clustering, and rendering market with our Twin 1U platforms this latest addition to Boston’s award winning range of servers and storage solutions is set to raise the bar even further. In terms of processing density, power consumption, TCO and performance the Igloo 3000GP seriously cannot be faulted” says Manoj Nayee Managing Director at Boston Limited.

PC Pro Magazine have awarded the Igloo 3000GP 1U server with the highly coveted “PC PRO Recommended” award thanks to it’s astonishing feature set, their verdict - “Four of the very latest quad-core Opteron processors, dual motherboards, a low power consumption, full remote management and all in a 1U rack chassis – what more do you want?”, says it all!

Boston will deliver this solution to organizations worldwide who are looking for a solution that offers unrivaled processing performance and density whilst at the same time significantly reducing the cost and power needs against rival platforms. With a full range of worldwide warranty packages and carbon offset schemes Boston are well positioned to increase our channel growth against tier 1 vendors.

Other variants of the Igloo 3000GP feature Infiniband Mellonox ConnectX and BMC IPMI v2.0 with dedicated LAN support on-board providing a ideal platform for those seeking low latency HPC solutions..
