Earlier this morning at WorldHostingDays outside of Frankfurt, we announced our new line of PowerEdge C microservers. While this is our third generation of microservers, its the first that are available beyond the custom designed systems we’ve been building for a small group of hyperscale web hosters.
If you’re not familiar with microservers, their big appeal is that they are right-sized for many dedicated hosting applications and provide extreme density and efficiency, all of which drive up a data center’s revenue per square foot. As an example, our first generation allowed one of France’s largest hosters, Online.net to efficiently enter a new market and gain double digit market share.
To see exactly what these systems are all about, check out this short walk thru by Product Manager Deania Davidson. The system that Deania is showing off is the AMD-based PowerEdge C5125 which will be available next month. Also announced today is the Intel-based PowerEdge C5220 which will be out in May.
