Intel® Xeon® 5600

CIARA latest generation of intelligent server and workstation is based on the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series processors. The industry leading performance and energy-efficiency of the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series help our customer reduce operating costs and achieve rapid return on investment.

CIARA server and workstation based on the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series automatically regulates power consumption and intelligently adjusts system performance according to application demand, maximizing both energy cost savings and performance. The secret to this surprising combination is Intel’s new 32nm microarchitecture. Featuring Intel® Intelligent Power Technology, it reduces energy cost over single core servers by automatically shifting the CPU and memory into the lowest available power state, while Intel® Turbo Boost Technology intelligently adjusts performance to application needs.

In addition, built-in hardware-assisted virtualization technology with Intel® Virtualization Technology FlexMigration (Intel® VT FlexMigration) gives you the power and flexibility to virtualize different generations of Intel® Xeon® processor-based systems within the same virtualization pool, giving you the ability to migrate workloads to fewer servers at night to save energy.

Designed for industry-leading performance and maximum energy efficiency, CIARA versatile 1-way and 2-way 64-bit multi-core servers and workstations are ideally suited to a wide range of infrastructure, cloud, high-density, and high-performance computing (HPC) applications.

Transform your workflow with NVIDIA QUADRO GPUs

The latest NVIDIA® Quadro® professional solutions are true technological breakthroughs, delivering up to 5x faster 3D performance and 8x faster computational simulation across a broad range of design, animation and video applications. Built on the innovative NVIDIA Fermi architecture, the latest Quadro offerings are the first professional-class GPUs to integrate high performance computing capabilities with advanced visualization techniques, transforming modern workflows. Featuring new Scalable Geometry Engine™ technology, Quadro can deliver an unheard of 1.3 billion triangles per second, shattering previous 3D graphics limitations. With Quadro solutions, your work flows -- you can design, iterate and deliver higher quality projects in less time.

Solid-State Drives

Smart meets fast. Solid State Drives are renowned for their shock-and-dust-proof durability and the reliability that comes with no moving parts. Our SSDs solution also provide quick data transfers with and a nice range of capacities. The new generation of SSD offers built-in data protection features, better performance, larger capacities and more value for your money. Built with compute-quality NAND Flash Memory, the SSD accelerates performance where it matters most. With random read performance up to 39,500 Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) and sequential read performance of up to 270 megabytes per second (MB/s), your system will blaze through the most demanding applications and will handle intense multi-tasking needs. Couple that performance with random writes up to 23,000 IOPS and sequential writes up to 220MB/s to unleash your system.

Energy Efficiency

CIARA designs its products with the environment in mind. Our product line is designed to be energy efficient right out of the box, free of many harmful toxins, and highly recyclable. CIARA Systems include highly efficient power supply that reduces the amount of power wasted. All of our Systems include high-efficiency power-supply with PMBus capability that when combined with CIARA Intelligent Power Manager provides policy-based power capping capabilities to enable increased rack densities and improved data center utilization. Lower power consumption reduces energy bills and lessens the environmental impact of greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. Our Energy Efficient systems include low-wattage processors, low-voltage memory modules (DIMMs) and high-efficiency fans that adjust spin rates according to server workload and help you manage power in your specific environment.
