Providing enterprise-level performance and efficiency for small and medium businesses
In keeping with its aggressive strategy for commercial products, Acer has advanced its server line with a new generation of server products featuring Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2 product family.
Acer F2 servers introduce improved performance with new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2 product family which are manufactured with 22nm process using 3-D Tri-Gate transistors. These smaller and more power-efficient transistors provide up to 37% performance increase at low voltage versus Intel’s 32nm planar transistors or 50% reduction in power consumption when operating at the same performance as the previous 32nm generation. By utilizing new Intel® Xeon® processors featuring cutting-edge 3-D Tri-Gate transistor technology - three gates wrapped around a silicon channel in a 3-D structure - Acer F2 servers offer an unprecedented combination of performance and energy efficiency.
Equipped with higher clock and Turbo Boost speeds, Acer F2 generation servers allow businesses to protect, manage, process, and distribute data more efficiently.
Evis Lin, AVP of Enterprise Product Business Unit at Acer Inc. remarked, "The new F2 line up of server products demonstrates Acer’s continuous strive to deliver robust solutions for the modern business, enterprise and datacenter." He continued, “By merging Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge technology with our server expertise, this F2 generation of servers boasts excellent performance as well as an outstanding energy-saving architecture.”
"We are pleased to see Acer announce its updated F2 server products featuring the leading performance and power efficiency of the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2 product family. These processors are built for the unique demands of small and medium business owners who require technology that lets them rapidly respond to market conditions and maintain a competitive advantage.” Said Dylan Larson, Director Xeon Product Marketing in Intel’s Datacenter Infrastructure Group.
Acer offers the same set of standard management tools – Smart Setup, Smart Console, Smart Server Manager and Smart Integration Pack – for the AR320 F2, AT310 F2, and Smart Setup for the AT110 F2 server products. Acer enhances this toolset with features such as remote firmware updates and power monitoring and has also integrated a power management tool kit as an add-on expansion for its own Smart Server Manager. This optional feature enables Acer’s AR320 F2 and AT310 F2 servers to run power capping commands via a uniform interface to ensure each machine is providing optimal power-performance needed for mission-critical applications.
Simple, focused and innovative, Acer's new server line up with Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2 product family support provides enterprise-level performance and efficiency for small and medium businesses.
