    Aspen Systems Introduces Glacier Dual Blade Server System
    Monday February 02 2004 @ 11:45AM EST

    Wheat Ridge, CO, February 2, 2004 Aspen Systems, a leader in the custom design, manufacture and service of Linux®-based supercomputing clusters and a wide array of additional high performance computing (HPC) solutions, introduces the Glacier Dual Blade Server System, based on dual Intel® Xeon™ processors. The Glacier Dual Blade Server System delivers equivalent performance and capabilities of a rack server, but with easier installation, service and management.

    Aspen Systems’ Glacier Dual Blade Server System makes networking and storage expansion simple with dual integrated network environment support and internal and external storage expansion capabilities. The blade server platform is also highly reliable thanks to built-in redundancy for every component. You can even mix and match a wide variety of blades in the same chassis.

    No tools or expertise are required to add, remove or replace a new blade in the system, and there are no cables to disconnect. The compute blade connects to the server chassis and other components through a midplane. This midplane replaces an average of nine cables typically required in rack and pedestal server configurations, eliminating excessive cables.

    Individual blades are easily managed locally or anywhere on your network with the Intel® Server Management Module SBCECMM with integrated Chassis-level system management and a KVM switch. The Server Management Module, integrated into the Intel® Server Chassis SBCE, streamlines and simplifies the management of all 14 server blades in a single chassis.

    “The Glacier Dual Xeon Blade Server System has 14 dual processor server blades in a 7U chassis. That is twice the density of rack-mounted servers,” stated Tom Leinberger, VP of Sales at Aspen Systems. “This system allows you to be more productive with fewer resources, and reduces the overall infrastructure and support costs.”

    "We're pleased to be working with Aspen Systems as they introduce their new Blade Server based on the Intel Xeon processor," said Phil Brace, director of marketing, Enterprise Platforms & Services Marketing, Intel Corporation. "The Intel® Xeon™ processor offers outstanding platform dependability, value and versatility."

    The Blade Server System Architecture · 7U Chassis supports up to 14 individual blades, each ultra-thin blade consist of processors, memory and storage options · Dual Intel Xeon processors running at 2.67 GHz, 2.8 GHz, and future speeds · Dual integrated network environment support · Internal and external storage expansion capabilities · Integrated Chassis-level system management and KVM switch for compute blade configuration, control and status
