We have just added five new server configurations to our web site, a Sempron 3000+, Athlon64 3500+, Core 2 Duo E6600, a dual Woodcrest Xeon 5130 and a dual Opteron 2212. These systems assure that our product line is kept up-to-date and to assure that our customers are receiving the best value possible.
These new configurations are not yet in stock, but should be available in the coming weeks as we fully test the configurations with the available operating systems, etc. We will also be testing a new feature which we hope to make available on all new high-end systems, everything but the Sempron and Athlon64, IPMI. IPMI would give our customers console access of their own, which can make many tasks much simpler while also allowing you to recover a system if there are problems booting, etc. IPMI also provides diagnostic information regarding the servers allowing our customers and our staff to keep an eye on systems and to better evaluate potential issues. This added benefit will be made available at no additional charge and will soon allow us to also implement the automated OS reinstall services, keep checking this blog for updates on that offering.
As a note, we are no longer offering lower end Intel based systems as at this time Intel really has nothing to compete with in that market segments. With the release of the Core 2 Duo, and the fact the Core 2 Solo has not yet been released, the current Celeron and Pentium 4 systems are in lower availability and are simply out-dated. We have elected instead to go with the Sempron 3000+ and Athlon64 3500+ on the AM2 platform in order to provide servers in the lower price ranges with a higher performance per watt rating.
