Press Release September 4, 2007 Stirling 4x4 Processing!
Aberdeen's Server Delivers Quad, Quad-Core Power

Santa Fe Springs, California, Sept. 4, 2007 - Aberdeen LLC, the Custom Server Solution Provider, and Supermicro Computer, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-quality motherboards, have joined forces to deliver an innovative HPC server solution. Featuring the 4-way quad-core Intel® Xeon® Processor 7300 Series, Aberdeen's Stirling 444, high-performance server, caters to enterprise server markets such as; grid computing, HPC (High Performance Computer Cluster) and EPIC (Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing).

"We are excited about our new 4x4 server, and feel that the Stirling 444 can maneuver through the toughest of computational terrains." states Moshe Ovadya, President of Aberdeen.

The award-winning Aberdeen Stirling line of high-performance rackmount servers utilizes the quad socket, quad-core Intel® Xeon® Processor 7300 Series to combine high performance processor technology, power efficiency and reliability into every customizable server. The multi-processor Stirling 444 is a multi-tasking beast that delivers the best value in multi-processing and delivers optimal performance in clustered environments.

“Intel and Aberdeen both work to deliver high-performance and innovation for server customers," said Boyd Davis, general manager, Intel’s Server Platform Group Marketing. “The Aberdeen Stirling 444 server is a great example, incorporating the industry-leading performance, efficiency, and dependability of the new 4-way Quad-Core Xeon processors.”

The Stirling 444 is effectively a 16-core supercomputer available to perform highly calculation-intensive tasks such as quantum mechanical physics, weather forecasting, climate research, molecular modeling, flight simulations, AI, graphic rendering and 3D modeling. As for multitasking, the quad-core multi-processor Stirling provides intensive computational power by off-loading certain tasks to specific cores, thus freeing up additional processor resources for other tasks and resulting in improved productivity for; universities, military agencies, scientific research laboratories, game development, digital media design, film and video rendering.

The Aberdeen Stirling HPC servers offer; quad-core quad-processor support with a 1066Mhz front side bus, low energy consumption, 8MB Cache, up to 192GB of fully-buffered DIMM DDR2 memory, redundant 1200W power supply and SAS storage technology for premium disk drive performance and SATA compatibility for a maximum of 5TB storage capacity. Starting around the $8000, the Stirling 444 provides high-performance 16-core processing and delivers radically increased throughput, capability and reliability.
