Kontron has unveiled the IP network server NSN2U at the ESC Silicon Valley conference in San Jose, California.

The Kontron NSN2U is a 2U rack mount server for IP network applications, supporting the latest Intel micro architecture within the Intel Xeon Processor 5500 Series.

The chassis design combines extensive network port density, high-capacity processing, and additional advanced features in a dense and compact 2U package, suitable for network data applications with intense I/O and compute performance requirements.

Using the capabilities of the Intel Xeon 5500 platform, the Kontron IP network server NSN2U features the Intel 5500 Xeon processor series with an integrated memory controller, and Intel Quickpath, Turbo Boost, virtualisation and Hyper-Threading technology.

It combines greater performance and power efficiency to provide improved performance per watt compared with previous rack-mount servers.

It provides support for the latest technologies and industry standards including PCI-E Gen2, Power Management Bus (PMBus), DDR3 memory, enhanced remote management capabilities via IPMI and directed I/O virtualisation technology.

It also includes hot-swap, redundant fans for greater uptime and improved serviceability.

Increased memory and storage capacity are now possible, with 12 slots for DDR3 RDIMM/UDIMM memory (96Gbytes maximum), and support of up to eight hot-swap 2.5in SAS/SATA hard-disk drives, which can allow greater HW RAID options and flexibility for fine tuning to optimised safety and transfer rates.

Further storage options are also permitted through support of solid-state drives with either SATA or USB interface.

The NSN2U continues the benefits of the existing IP network server product family, including three- to five-year extended lifecycle, dual-redundant AC or DC power, and high I/O density – all in a ruggedised, shallow-depth chassis.

The IP network server NSN2U will become available in production by July 2009.
