Stirling 277 - VMware ESXi 5.5 / Fault Tolerance Ready
vSphere Fault Tolerance (FT) provides continuous availability for applications in the event of server failures, by creating a live shadow instance of a virtual machine that is in virtual lockstep with the primary instance. By allowing instantaneous failover between the two instances in the event of hardware failure, FT eliminates even the smallest chance of data loss or disruption.
Maximize uptime in your datacenter and reduce downtime management costs by enabling vSphere Fault Tolerance (FT) for your virtual machines. FT provides zero downtime, zero data loss, and continuous availability for your applications, without the cost and complexity of traditional hardware or software clustering solutions.
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%.
Intelligent Platform Management Interface
For hardware-level platform monitoring and control functions, the IPMI protocol utilizes an out-of-band network to provide a flawless and secure path for mission-critical applications when regular in-band connectivity is lost or is unresponsive. Remote access for monitoring and administration allows the server administrators to view a server's hardware status remotely, receive an alarm automatically if a failure occurs, and power cycle a system that is non-responsive.
Total System Intel Virtualization Technology Support
Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT-x
) offers investment protection and infrastructure flexibility with multigeneration VM migration across the full range of 32-bit and 64-bit configurations, enabling bigger VM pools.
Intel Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (Intel VT-c
) provides hardware-assisted I/O that accelerates network performance and simplifies VM migration.
Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (Intel VT-d
) helps speed data movement and eliminates much of the performance
overhead by giving designated VMs their own dedicated I/O devices, reducing the overhead of the VM migration in managing I/O traffic.
Virtual Machine Device Queues
Boosts network I/O to meet the demands of consolidated virtual workloads. Multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) introduce heavy traffic-management demands that servers must meet in order to ensure scalability and get the full value of virtualization.
optimizes the processing of VM data traffic by routing them to the correct virtual machines at the chipset level and offloading the hypervisor to improve CPU utilization and bandwidth.
Intel I/O Acceleration Technology
Today's multi-port GbE and 10GbE network adapters deliver enormous data flows that require advanced server I/O subsystems to avoid performance bottlenecks. Intel I/OAT
improves data flow across the platform to enhance system performance while reducing system overhead.
