(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – 1&1 Internet, Ltd., www.1and1.co.uk, a global leader among Web hosting providers, today launched an innovative Intel-powered Dedicated Server featuring an 8 core ATOM C2750 processor. Priced from only £39.99/month+VAT, and offering an optimal balance of performance, scalability and price, 1&1’s new entry-level Dedicated Server A8i fits especially the needs of small and medium sized business users.
Dedicated Servers are the ideal solution for IT professionals and businesses that require robust server operations for applications and data storage without the capital expenditure or the physical space required for running hardware. The 1&1 A8i Dedicated Server delivers all the power and consistency of dedicated hardware at low cost. The new server has been developed in close co-operation between the 1&1 R&D centre and Intel in order to meet the high quality requirements 1&1 has for every Dedicated Server with regards to reliability, data security and performance.
1&1’s close global partnership with Intel has resulted in a hybrid server package that offers a fast and highly scalable solution, ideal for a range of user cases. The Intel ATOM C2750 processor is unique in that all 3 main controllers (memory, storage and network) are directly attached to the CPU which creates faster communication between them and means faster CPU performance in general.
For the user, the use of 8 CPU cores means the server offers ground-breaking speeds, consistently responsive performance and lower latency for this price range. Those requiring processing power for a number of simultaneous intensive computing workloads and Web requests – for example, an online business with significant databases, will thrive on this platform.
Priced from only £39.99/month+VAT, (with a one-time £49 setup fee), and available in Linux, Windows or Managed configurations, the 1&1 Dedicated Server A8i delivers 8 CPU cores, 8 GB of RAM, 2 x 1000 GB SATA hard disk storage, 300Gbit/s external network connectivity, full 64-bit support, and is accompanied by 24/7 expert support. There is a choice of 1 month, 12 month and 24 month contract terms. Server management is conducted directly from 1&1’s Control Panel and can be further enhanced with Parallels Plesk 11 included.
Robert Hoffmann, CEO Hosting, 1&1 Internet Ltd., comments, “It is pleasing to be at the forefront of collaboration with Intel in applying this exciting new technology to a dedicated server environment. The result is a great 1&1 server package – compared to earlier versions, the new A8i server delivers 30 per cent more performance for the price-point”.
A key element of Intel ATOM technology is the low power consumption of the CPU core. Whilst 1&1’s new dedicated server operates at high density, it does so with very low-power consumption. This is a perfect fit for 1&1 as a server provider focused on reducing heat loss and off-setting 100% of its energy usage of 1&1’s five international, green powered data centres.
