BEAVERTON, Ore., Sept. 26 -- File serving and database
applications powered by PolyServe Matrix Server(TM) shared data clustering
software are gaining the performance and memory advantages of the 64-bit
Intel(R) Xeon(TM) processor with Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel
EM64T), PolyServe announced today.
PolyServe has added support for the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor to the
latest release of Matrix Server, version 3.1 for Linux. Matrix Server software
provides the technology foundation for PolyServe's scalable file serving and
database consolidation solutions.
Matrix Server 3.1 offers full EM64T support for both Novell SUSE SLES 9
and Red Hat 4.0 Linux offerings. This added capability enables PolyServe
shared data clusters to support larger databases that require 64-bit memory
addressing and offer increased I/O performance on 64-bit file serving
"Intel's 64-bit Xeon processor technology is a leading server platform for
enterprise data centers," said Mike Stankey, president and CEO of PolyServe.
"PolyServe is making utility computing based on Intel Architecture servers a
reality for enterprise data centers."
PolyServe solutions combine clusters of Intel Architecture-based servers
with high availability services, a cluster management application called
Matrix Manager and on-demand system server and storage scalability for a best-
in-class price-performance utility computing platform.
"We are pleased that participation in the Intel Early Access Program has
helped PolyServe take advantage of the promise of data center utility
computing on 64-bit Intel Architecture," said Melissa Laird, general manager
of Intel's Developer Relations Division. "By making it easier with Matrix
Server 3.1 to add throughput capacity as needed without disrupting existing
applications, PolyServe adds to the total cost of ownership benefits for
enterprise data center customers running on 64-bit Intel Architecture."
