Fabric7 Introduces 16-Way AMD Opteron-Based Enterprise Servers

Fabric7 Systems today introduced its flagship servers, the Q160 and Q80 based on the company's proprietary fabric computing architecture and AMD Opteron microprocessors. More Fabric7 Q160 and Q80 features include:

  • Enterprise-class 16-way x64 servers with hardware partitioning
  • Mainframe-inspired virtualized I/O
  • Low-latency, high-bandwidth fabric
  • Single fabric-wide view and management of resources
  • Based on AMD Opteron processors with Direct Connect
  • Fabric7's Q-Par technology enables customers to hardware partition the chassis into separate servers and provision guaranteed levels of bandwidth for network and storage I/O. The servers can be provisioned and managed dynamically using Fabric7's Q-Visor management system.

The Q160 can be configured with up to 128 GB of memory and up to 30 Gbps of external I/O. The Q80 can be configured with up to 128 GB of memory, eight full-speed (133 MHz) PCI-X slots and eight built-in 1 Gbps Ethernet RJ-45 ports. Fabric7 servers run off-the-shelf Red Hat Linux and Novell's SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server and Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

The Fabric7 Q160 server is generally available now with a starting list price of $144,000. The Fabric7 Q80 server is currently available for customer trials and will be generally available in January 2006 with a starting list price of $42,000.
