PowerEdge R710 Available

Filed in by Grant Herbon | April 15, 2009 10:07 am

Last week, we launched the availability of Dell’s new 11g server, the PowerEdge R710. We don’t normally launch products the same day they become available to the market because we want to ensure that they’re ready and we’re able to provide our customers with the support and service they’ve come to expect from Rackspace. We’re confident with the R710, we can. The R710 is the replacement for the 2950 MK III. From our perspective, it’s a premium server that is ideally suited for virtualized environments. The capability it can provide proved compelling enough to launch with Dell and Intel.

With the introduction of Intel’s Nehalem architecture and DDR3 memory with a maximum capacity of 144 GB of memory, our customers will be able to get more value out of a single server. And the more our customers get out of their servers, the more we get out of our datacenter.
