Quanta QCT Announces Availability of Four New Servers Based on Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 Product Family
FREMONT, Calif. – March 6, 2012 /Businesswire/ – Quanta QCT today announced the availability of four new STRATOS servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family. Intel® announced availability of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family at an event today in San Francisco.
QCT is a part of Quanta Computer, a $37-billion original design manufacturer based in Taiwan. Quanta Computer is one of the world’s largest providers of datacenter solutions. Since 2006, Quanta Computer has engineered and manufactured server, storage and networking equipment for many well-known datacenters. Quanta Computer also serves as the ODM for datacenter equipment branded under other names.
"The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family offers the performance, energy efficiency, I/O innovation and hardware security features to become the heart of flexible efficient data centers,” said Dylan Larson, Director of Marketing for Intel's Datacenter Infrastructure Group. “Quanta’s thoughtful engineering, creative problem solving and reliable manufacturing capability allows them to utilize the latest Xeon processor to deliver exceptional value and performance to datacenter customers."
The four Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family-based servers Quanta QCT announced today are:
• STRATOS S210-X12RS: Offers up to 24 DIMM slots in 1U for datacenter applications that demand large memory capacity, such as virtualization and real-time financial transactions. The STRATOS S210-X12RS is optimized for the demands of the densest datacenter environments. It boosts general performance by up to 80 percent over a previous generation Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers, and provides up to 768GB of memory capacity in a space-efficient 1U form factor.
• STRATOS S210-X22RQ: Uses the same motherboard as the STRATOS S210-X12RS, but in a 2U-chassis that provides more local storage for datacenter applications demanding large memory capacity and storage capacity.
• STRATOS S210-X12MS: Offers 16 DIMM slots in 1U. System functions are streamlined to provide high performance, cost-effectiveness and power-efficiency. The system boosts general performance by up to 80 percent and enables up to two times better technical computing performance with Intel® AVX technology over a previous generation Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers. Ideal for datacenters requiring floating point or high-performance computing.
• STRATOS S810-X52L: This high-density server includes four Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family-based server nodes in a 2U chassis design. Each node supports 16 DIMM slots. Having twice the computing density of traditional 2-way servers, the system features extremely high density, unsurpassed performance, and energy efficiency from shared power and cooling modules. The S810-X52L is ideal for HPC, clustering, cloud infrastructure and datacenters demanding high computing and memory density.
“These new STRATOS servers offer dramatic improvements in performance, and our product design offers impressive power and cooling efficiency,” said Mike Yang, general manager and vice president of Quanta QCT. “The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family-based platform has allowed us to deliver the efficiency and return on investment our customers increasingly demand.”
Each Quanta QCT’s STRATOS server is tuned to a different need in the datacenter. Because each product is specifically engineered for each function, the over-engineering and feature creep often found in conventional equipment designs are eliminated. As a result, Quanta QCT products measurably outperform conventional designs in energy consumption, cooling efficiency, acquisition cost (CAPEX) and operational expense (OPEX).

Quanta QCT is the only company that delivers server, storage and networking equipment design and manufacturing experience in a single, proven resource. Presently, enterprise datacenters are built with server, storage and networking equipment from different manufacturers. While the industry has adapted to this inefficiency, Quanta QCT now makes it possible for customers to build datacenters with confidence that all components are designed to work together. For the first time, they can work with a single manufacturer to verify that the solution is engineered to deliver the customer’s targeted technical and cost performance benchmarks.
