ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS), today introduced the NCLV-DS motherboard, which supports a dual-Intel Xeon platform with EM64T (Extended Memory 64 Technology).
It also adopted the latest Intel E7320 chipset to provide powerful features in server systems.
The NCLV-DS delivers a dual-Xeon processing platform on 800MHz front-side-bus (FSB) and incorporated EM64T to handle current 32bit and future 64bit applications. Supporting 16GB DDR 333, the motherboard offers an affordable memory solution that also provides ample bandwidth for fast data transfers.
Scalability is another advantage the NCLV-DS brings to users. Equipped with the x4 PCI Express interconnect (through x8 connector), it supports various add-on expansion cards for future upgrade.
Also available is the dual-Gigabit LAN controller design for server-class network capability. It allows larger bandwidth for data transfers and backup network connection just in case one of the LAN card fails.
Stability, efficiency, cost and convenience are critical in determining a quality server. And a reliable tool for system monitoring is essential to ensure the four criteria mentioned are indeed included in the server system. ASWM 2.0 (ASUS System Web-based Management) allows MIS engineers to conveniently and remotely monitor, manage and upgrade server systems. Traditional solutions for system management and maintenance are time consuming and inefficient. When a system malfunctions, MIS engineers have to first understand the server they are dealing with, open up the server and determine whether the problem is at hardware or software levels. ASWM 2.0 eliminated all the hassle mentioned. With a few clicks on the mouse, status of th e system is presented in seconds, even from a remote location.
The NCLV-DS is developed for the value-conscious users who still demand excellent performance and features. It is an excellent foundation for file servers, web servers, high-performance clusters etc.
