ttec Computers accelerates CALLEO 340 Servers to the next level

transtec servers now available with new Intel Xeon 5600 Processors

(PresseBox) (Zaventem, ) ttec Computers is releasing CALLEO 340 Servers with the new Intel Xeon 5600 Processor, codenamed Westmere. The processors come in quadcore or sixcore variants. They deliver improved computing performance and reduced energy consumption over the predecessor model. The intelligent processor management automatically adjusts clock cycle and energy consumption to prevailing computing requirements. Offering a maximum 96gigabyte RAM, the processors have enough capacity to adapt to everincreasing performance demands. The new transtec servers provide companies with a maximum return on investment. transtec CALLEO 340 Servers are available from 1,819 Euros (excl. VAT).

Universal application at low energy costs

The new transtec CALLEO 340 Servers are designed for standard business use as well as intensive computing applications such as multimedia or database applications, for instance. The new servers are also a solid basis for virtualisation or as an integral part of a highperformance cluster. The servers can be configured with SATA, SAS II or SSD hard drives depending on the area of application. The maximum memory capacity is 72 terabytes. The transtec CALLEO 340 is particularly energyefficient thanks to the Intel Processor performance management and the deployment of highquality 80plus power supplies. Heat and noise emissions are kept to a minimum - and energy costs are reduced accordingly.

Efficient decentralised server administration

The new transtec CALLEO 340 Servers are configured with an Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI 2.0) as standard for administrators to manage, control and fix all functional and power modules centrally over the network. An administrator is only required onsite in the event of a hardware breakdown. A dedicated LAN port for remote access and comprehensive security features ensure that authorised persons only can gain access.

Immediate use and efficient

Server breakdowns or upgrades affect business productivity. This is why transtec servers are tested thoroughly before shipment. Server experts ensure that standard and customised systems are ready for immediate and efficient application. Torsten Schmidt, transtec's Server Product Manager comments: "For over 30 years, transtec has been advising and supporting SMBs and institutions in configuring and running their IT environments. It is a fact that the best IT systems are those you don't have to worry out. The new transtec CALLEO 340 Servers deliver twice the security of other systems: they offer absolute reliability and fail safety in operation and they have sufficient computing and storage capacities to last the next few years."
