Westborough, MASS. — Data General announced its new AV 35000 server with powerful Pentium III Xeon processing. The AV 35000 is Data General’s latest and most innovative enterprise consolidation solution. The newest member of the award winning AViiON series, this enterprise server can adapt to changing workloads by scaling up to 64 Pentium III Xeon processors.
The AV 35000 offers a simple upgrade path from the AV 25000 with fourth generation NUMA technology and the ability to meet UNIX environment demands.
“In keeping with our server-line enhancements, the AV 35000 offers a cost-effective consolidation solution for business-critical needs,” said Rick Strom, director of AViiON marketing. “This enterprise-level server offers investment protection and high-power and is an ideal solution for both new customers and current AV 25000 users.”
“Data General continues to meet its customers’ needs by providing, reliable and high-performing Intel-based servers, featuring the Pentium Xeon processor,” said Raghu Murthi, director of marketing for Intel’s Enterprise Platforms Group. “Intel-based servers provide the platform headroom, availability and scalability to keep up with the increasing demand and workload of the new Internet Economy.”
“AViiON servers are a key component of GERS’ electronic software solutions,” said Jim Henderson, president and chief executive officer of GERS Retail Systems. “With this new product, our customers will be able to depend on AViiON’s high-reliability as they implement mission critical transaction management applications for web commerce and store-based retailing. Our association with Data General demonstrates a shared commitment to delivering powerful solutions for the retail marketplace in more than 400 GERS installations worldwide.”
Both the AV 25000 and the AV 35000 ccNUMA systems are servers of choice for the largest database OLTP, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), data warehousing or healthcare applications.
