SECAUCUS, USA: ZT Systems, a leading provider of customized server solutions for large-scale data centers, announced the ZT Systems 1253Ra 1U Datacenter Server, featuring the best performance per watt measured to date for an AMD Opteron 4100 Series processor-powered server (SPECpower_ssj 2008 2,106 overall ssj_ops/watt) - a 52 percent increase in performance per watt over ZT Systems servers powered by the previous generation of comparable AMD Opteron processors.
This cost-effective new platform is an outstanding solution for high-density cloud computing data center operators focused on optimizing performance/watt/dollar per square foot.
The ZT Systems 1253Ra 1U Datacenter Server is designed around the new AMD Opteron 4100 Series processor (formerly code-named “Lisbon”), which boasts the lowest known power per core of any server processor**, at 5.83W (35W/6 = 5.83W/core.) Combined with highly energy efficient components including solid-state drives, this platform is ideal for the scale out data center environment where density and efficiency are at a premium. ZT’s custom platform engineering, integration and delivery capabilities leverage this new technology as part of precision-fit solutions to the unique technical and business requirements of individual data centers.
