Aberdeen's Stirling Server Delivers Six-Core Performance

Santa Fe Springs, California, Sept. 15, 2008 - Aberdeen LLC, the Custom Server and Storage Provider, continues to provide innovative high-performance servers. Featuring the Intel® Xeon® Processor 7400 Series, the Aberdeen Stirling 144 high-performance quad multi-core processor server, caters to enterprise server markets such as; grid computing, HPC (High Performance Computer) and EPIC (Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing).

"We are enthralled by the launch of the Dunnington chips and this leap in performance," states Moshe Ovadya, President of Aberdeen. "Aberdeen is primed to deliver the utmost in computational performance by utilizing four multi-core Intel Xeons in a single U space."

The award-winning Aberdeen Stirling high-performance rackmount server line offers quad socket, six-core Intel® Xeon® processors to provide the highest performance, power efficiency and reliability into the 1U Stirling 144 customizable server. The multi-processor Stirling 144 is a multi-tasking beast that provides the best value in multi-processing while delivering optimal performance in clustered environments.

“The Aberdeen Stirling 144 server is a great example of incorporating industry-leading performance, efficiency, and scalability of the new 4-way multi-core Xeon processors.” said Boyd Davis, general manager, Intel’s Server Platform Group Marketing.

The Stirling 144 is effectively a 24-core supercomputer available to perform the highest calculation-intensive tasks. As for multi-tasking, the multi-core Stirling 144 provides intensive computational power by off-loading certain tasks to specific cores. By freeing up additional processor resources for other tasks, the multi-core based 1U Stirling improves productivity for the most laborious tasks such as; global warming research, quantum mechanical physics, molecular modeling, gnome mapping, flight simulations, artificial intelligence, graphic rendering, 3D modeling and video rendering.

The Aberdeen Stirling HPC servers offer; six-core quad-processor support with a 1066Mhz front side bus, low energy consumption, 16MB Cache, up to 64GB of fully-buffered DIMM DDR2 memory, 1000W power supply and SAS storage technology for premium disk drive performance and radically increased throughput.  A fully configured 24-core Aberdeen Stirling server supercomputer starts for just under $15,000.
