Server Mania, a provider of dedicated servers and cloud hosting, has launched new dedicated servers based on the Intel Xeon D-1500 series processor family. The new product line provides the processing power of the 14nm Broadwell architecture, which would be ideal for a variety of workloads such as dynamic web serving, dedicated web hosting, warm storage, and network routing.
The Xeon D-1500 series represents Intel’s first Xeon-based System on a Chip, and includes integrated I/O circuitry and networking.
Server Mania’s dedicated servers based on the 8-core Intel Xeon D-1540 processor include 32GB RAM, and one 1 TB SATA drive or one 120 GB solid-state drive. Customers can upgrade their storage at any time and add memory to a maximum of 128GB. Customers can also select a chassis model with four hard drive bays.
The Xeon D-1540 would draw 45W of power, and has a base speed of 2.0GHz, all core turbo speed of 2.5GHz, and one core turbo speed of 2.6GHz.
Benchmark testing shows massive performance gains compared to the 8-core Intel Atom C2750 processor, according to Server Mania. “Compared to some of our legacy, single-core processors, the E3-1240v3 and E5-1600 series, switching to Intel Xeon D-1540 processors can provide huge performance gains,” said Chris Niedojadlo, COO of ServerMania. “By providing servers with the D-1540 at our data center facilities, we are able to provide a higher level of value to our clients through our additional services and support.”
Server Mania provides all dedicated server customers 10 TB per month data transfer (upgradable to up to 50 TB per month), managed backup, and DDoS protection powered by enterprise-grade RioRey DDoS mitigation appliances. It would also provide a 100% uptime SLA, and 24×7 technical support that responds within an average of 15 minutes.
“We think the Intel Xeon D-1540 processor provides excellent performance as well as value,” added Niedojadlo. “Providing this technology to our customers will help them run intensive applications more economically from our data centers, all while being backed by our experienced technicians and 100% uptime guarantee.”
