Latest processor offerings enable customers to handle extremely diverse workloads while experiencing an increase in overall performance per watt and headroom to scale.

...These new processors are designed to provide customers with headroom to scale, efficiency to lead, and the performance required to deliver real results.

Cirrascale Corporation®, a premier developer of build-to-order, independent blade-based computing and storage infrastructure for conventional and modular data centers, today announced its popular line of blade and rackmount workstations and servers -- the VB1600 Series, GB1600 Series and RM1600 Series -- have been updated to support the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600/1600 v3 product families. The highly anticipated processors, formerly codenamed Haswell-EP, are specifically designed to deliver the best combination of performance, built-in capabilities, and overall cost-effectiveness.

“Many of our customers are addressing new technical computing challenges that today’s technology struggles to handle,” said David Driggers, CEO, Cirrascale Corporation. “With up to 18 processing cores containing up to 45MB last level cache, as well as up to 40% more memory bandwidth , the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600/1600 v3 product families can begin to tackle the most important issues facing today’s IT organizations at the heart of their datacenters.”

The company’s updated line of blade and rackmount workstations and servers implements the new low power, high speed DDR4 memory technology providing increased bandwidth and power efficiency while enabling higher overall memory bandwidth with lower density DIMMs. These newly released offerings will also support improved performance of various high performance computing, professional imaging and feature detection applications and include next-gen networking improvements, new virtualization and security features.
