March 3, 2010 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – 1&1 Internet Inc.
, the world's largest Web host by known servers, is the first Web hosting company to globally launch dedicated servers with Hexa-Core processors (also known as Six-Core AMD). 1&1 has expanded its server portfolio with two additional premium models for professional use as a Web or application server. The advantages include outstanding performance with high-level availability and supreme reliability, with the servers benefiting from excellent connectivity to 1&1’s best in class data centers.
1&1’s new flagship server is the Hexa-Core 3XL, with 2 AMD Hexa-Core Opteron 2423 CPUs, a massive 32 GB of RAM, professional redundancy with RAID 5 and 2 Terabytes of usable disk space. The Hexa-Core 3XL is priced from $599.99/month. The second newcomer, the Hexa-Core XXL, also provides the same 12 processor cores, with 16 GB RAM and 1.5 Terabytes of usable disk space. The Hexa-Core XXL is priced from $499.99/month. This extremely powerful hardware is most beneficial when used for resource-intensive applications such as developing and hosting applications, distributed computing, virtual platforms, or online games.
1&1’s Hexa-Core servers set a new performance standard. An independent institute conducted a benchmark study that found that as a result of their unparalleled Hexa-Core technology, the new servers deliver up to 47 per cent higher performance as compared to existing top models that use Quad-Core.
1&1 will utilize the energy-saving High Efficiency (HE) version of the AMD Opteron series, meaning the performance benefits are accompanied by high efficiency. With a 2 GHz clock frequency, the fast Hexa-Core processors consume only 55 Watt ACP (Average CPU Power) and 79 Watt TDP (Thermal Design Power).
1&1’s Hexa-Core XXL and Hexa-Core 3XL servers are available in Linux or Windows configurations. 1&1 also offers a “Website Server” solution for users running a Web server. Furthermore, all 1&1 dedicated server solutions include 2 physical hard drives in RAID configuration, 1 free domain name, 3,000 free email accounts, 1 dedicated SSL certificate for secure information transfer and generous traffic allocations. Regularly, the commitment period for both new server packages can be selected as either 1 month with $99 set-up fee, or 12 months with no set-up fee. However, in March and April 1&1 is offering the first 6 months at 50 per cent off with a 12 month contract commitment.
1&1 has also cut the price of their Quad-Core XXL server from starting at $499.99 to $449.99.
