Dual Head Unit Stirling 277 - VMware ESXi 5.5 Server and FT Ready

VMware HA-along with new VMware vSphere 5 capabilities of clusters and resource pools and tighter integration with other VMware tools such as VMware vCenter Server, vMotion, and VMware DRS-greatly simplifies virtual machine provisioning, resource allocation, load balancing and migration, while also providing an easy-to-use, cost-effective, high-availability and failover solution for applications running in virtual machines. Using VMware vSphere 5 and VMware HA helps to eliminate single points of failure in the deployment of business-critical applications in virtual machines. At the same time, it enables you to maintain other inherent virtualization benefits such as higher system utilization, closer alignment of IT resources with business goals and priorities, and more streamlined, simplified and automated administration of larger infrastructure installations and systems.

Higher I/O Connectivity

The Stirling 277 features an incredible seven PCI Express 3.0 slots, with all slots free for expansion use. This allows for up to seven slots of add-on cards such as GbE or 10GbE network interface controllers and 8Gb Fibre Channel adapters for storage expansion.

E5-2600 Xeon Processors

Based on a new Intel microarchitecture and Intel's leading-edge Sandy-Bridge technology, the latest Intel Xeon processor E5 product families deliver up to 80% more performance than previous-generation processors. They offer more cores, cache, and memory capacity, and include Intel® Integrated I/O, which increases I/O capacity and reduces latency up to 30%.
Superior Performance with G7i Controller

Organizations require solutions that can offer excellent performance levels to meet the demands of mission-critical applications such as HD media editing and broadcasting, cloud services, and HPC. Featuring advanced hardware platforms, XDAS D-Series G7i solutions provide superior throughput to any prior XDAS ever sold. XDAS G7i solutions more than double the performance of existing XDAS D-Series arrays and are ideal for demanding applications such as high-definition media editing and broadcasting, cloud services and high-performance computing. For example, in media environments the G7i solutions are able to accommodate two high-resolution 4K video streams, whereas even a single 4K stream tended to be challenging for existing arrays.  

High-speed SAN with Powerful Scalability

Aberdeen furnishes all its XDAS D-Series Fibre-to-SAS/SATA models with four 8G FC host ports on each controller and a new SAS2.0 6G hard drive backplane. When data grows out of the capacity threshold of a single subsystem, you can scale it up to an installation housing more than one hundred drives through expansion enclosures. Powered by the new-generation RAID engine as its heart, the new D-Series Fibre-to-SAS/SATA Series can deliver outstanding performance for processing large amounts of data. The no-delay, smooth operations it enables can satisfactorily meet the service levels your business requires. Coupled with the broad support for enterprise-level OS and server virtualization, it can serve as data storage for top-tier applications.

VMware Bundle Choice

* All VMware kits and licenses are available upon request.

* Essentials Plus: If more ESXi servers are required, an upgrade to the VMware Standard Acceleration kit is necessary. After that, any additional vSphere ESXi licenses can be purchased and applied according to needs.

* Standard Acceleration: If more ESXi servers are required, no upgrade is necessary, only additional vSphere ESXi licenses should be purchased and applied according to needs.
