Texas-based Newisys, which designs enterprise-class server and storage products, has teamed up with Thacker - based in Jebel Ali - the Middle East distributor who owns Dubai-based Sky Electronics. "In many cases we have seen that corporate accounts like to play with someone local. But locals often aren't able to offer the product lines they would expect," explains Jan Puchert, director of channel sales EMEA enterprise computing and storage, Newisys when asked about why the Texans chose Thacker. "We see a lot of need for our products and services in the Middle East," says Werne Paulus, manager channel sales EMEA enterprise and storage. "Thacker offers logistics, marketing, and some support, and we offer full support on our products," he continues. At Gitex, Newisys pitched its 4300-E, one of the most powerful yet compact servers on the market, which provides maximum performance, availability and manageability for business-critical workloads. The firm reckons that it's products are ideal for enterprise databases, online transactions processing, data warehousing and data mining, business-critical corporate datacenter, ERP, CRM, enterprise mail and messaging, internet infrastructure, complex compute-intensive analytical workloads. The server is used in disciplines such as engineering, life sciences and financial services. The 4300-E Enterprise Class server is one of the most powerful yet compact 4-way rack servers on the market claims Newisys. "Leveraging AMD Opteron 800 series processors, the 4300-E delivers enterprise performance, expandibility, serviceability and redundancy in a best-in-class 3U form factor," continues Werne. "It provides headroom for growth while protecting your IT investment today. Based on the AMD Opteron processor, the Newisys 4300-E delivers leading performance for today's 32-bit workloads, yet also provides support for 64-bit applications that were previously the exclusive domain of high-priced, proprietary 64-bit RISC servers," explains Werne. The Newisys 4300-E also supports AMD latest Opteron dual core processors and implements the Direct Connect Architecture to eliminate performance bottlenecks that the company claims are found in other industry-standard server designs. With up to 64GB of high-speed DDR400 memory and extensive hot-swap PCI-X expansion capability, the Newisys 4300-E server is suited for mission-critical database and enterprise application. The server includes a dedicated service processor for complete operating system independence and maximum availability of systems management. This allows 100% "lights out", remote system management, such that the system can be administered from anywhere using a secure web-based graphical user interface, secure command-line interface or SNMP integration with third-party framworks.
