Express5800/A1080a

Overview

Exceptional configuration flexibility, capacity, record-breaking performance and reliability - exploiting the inherent functionality of the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 (Westmere-EX) series servers.

Scalable and Flexible

NEC’s Express5800/A1080a series server can accommodate up to 2 TB of memory and 160 threads with modular in-box partitioning in an innovative single 7U chassis. Whether for memory hungry virtualization solutions, compute intensive databases, or high availability for mission-critical business, IT managers have the flexibility to scale and configure the new Express5800/A1080a series server as a common platform for their unique datacenter requirements.

Exceptional Performance

Building upon the record-breaking performance of the NEC enterprise scalable servers, the A1080a series server utilizes Intel’s QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) technology, delivering over 200% improvement in database performance compare to previous generation.

NEC n°1 in TPC-E - Top Ten Performance Results

TPC Benchmark™ E (TPC-E) is a new On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) workload developed by the TPC.

The TPC-E benchmark simulates the OLTP workload of a brokerage firm. The focus of the benchmark is the central database that executes transactions related to the firm’s customer accounts. Although the underlying business model of TPC-E is a brokerage firm, the database schema, data population, transactions, and implementation rules have been designed to be broadly representative of modern OLTP systems.
