Aberdeen LLC Ups the Ante with Its Bold New Line of Servers and Storage

For immediate release
Aberdeen Ups the Ante with Its Bold New Line of Servers and Storage

Santa Fe Springs, California, October 18, 2012: Server and Storage manufacturer, Aberdeen once again stakes its claim to its position as a leading provider of the latest technologies to the IT community. Aimed at all IT users from the smallest businesses to multi-petabyte storage consumers, this newly released offering promises to deliver the most bang for the buck at every level.

IT and data center managers know that you can only get the most out of servers and storage if they are ready for the upcoming technologies, which is why Aberdeen added PCI Express 3.0 support to its Stirling servers and AberNAS storage solutions. This means every new model will support the latest PCIe 3.0 controllers with a bus that provides up to two times the bandwidth of the previous models. This will enable Aberdeen customers to benefit from the upcoming PCIe 3.0 controllers such as RAID, HBA, Fibre Storage and multi-port 10 GBit Network controllers at their full speed by taking advantage of all of the functionality provided by the newest Intel E5-2600, Sandy Bridge-EP processors.

When it comes to storage solutions, it all starts with capacity. Aberdeen's product lineup offers a variety of options for customers. Aberdeen products come in 1U to 8U form factors with 4, 12, 16, 24, 36, 48, or 64 drive bays depending on the model you choose. Every system supports enterprise level hard drives up to 4TB per drive, thus delivering as much as 256TB of hard drive capacity in a single device.

The 21 new products which make up this incredibly aggressive release include 7 new Windows NAS products featuring Windows Storage Server 2012, 7 new Linux NAS products featuring Aberdeen's latest 64 bit Linux NAS operating system and 7 new Servers running Windows Server 2012 or your choice of many popular flavors of Linux.

Remote monitoring and management is handled in a highly efficient manner by the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) which is standard in all models. This functionality is further enhanced by including a dedicated, Out of Band, IPMI RJ45 LAN port, which means the server's hardware can be monitored and managed without taking up a chunk of the storage array's bandwidth. This feature also delivers the facility for users to manage the system from a remote location, even if it's powered off, which means you can restart or power on the server or NAS while away from the data center.

With form factors ranging from a 1U 4Bay up to an 8U 64Bay, up to 256TB of storage, Intel E5-2600 processors, up to 512GB of memory, Dual onboard 10 GBit or 1 GBit Ethernet ports, PCI Express 3.0, a dedicated IPMI port, JBOD Expansion Capabilities and redundant hot-pluggable power supplies, Aberdeen's Stirling servers and AberNAS storage systems are clearly the right choice for the discerning IT user.

  • 1U, 2U, 3U, 4U, 5U, 8U Form Factors
  • 4, 12, 16, 24, 36, 48 or 64 Hot Swap Drive Bays
