T120a-M - One-Net Communications

NEC Express5800/100 Series
■ Highly expandable 2-socket tower server
The T120a-M is a powerful and reliable server with high capacity internal
Up to two Intel® Xeon® processors 5500 series
Up to 192GB of memory
Up to eight 3.5-inch SAS/SATA or 16 2.5-inch SAS/SATA disk drives,
with optional RAID 5 and 6 capability
PCI Express 2.0, with twice the bandwidth of the previous generation
80PLUS® energy efficient power supply for reduced AC/DC loss
■ Dynamic scalability
Powered by Intel® Xeon® 5500 series with QuickPath Interconnect
(QPI) technology, the T120a-M achieves significant throughput
performance improvement. The latest processor features include:
Enhanced performance of individual processor cores to process more
instructions per clock cycle

own dedicated memory
High-speed QuickPath interconnects to link processors to memory
and I/O without the conflict between processors
■ Simplified deployment and management
The T120a-M offers integrated setup and management tools.
The EXPRESSBUILDER setup support tool provides step-by-step
guides via intuitive graphic interface and automates the setup process
with the Express Setup function, dramatically reducing hands-on
management of the server.
The ESMPRO management software and the EXPRESSSCOPE
Engine 2 remote management controller interact to monitor, control
and troubleshoot from a remote console, with no need to travel for onsite operational tasks.
■ Ideal Environments and Applications
The T120a-M is ideal for medium to large businesses needing robust
scalability and proven reliability for compute-intensive environments.
Application server to consolidate business-critical and general office
applications, and process high volumes of data in tandem with a
backend database
Database server to handle large volumes of data, while providing
greater compute power for working with application and web servers
Web server to handle increasing user access requirements, while
enhancing business efficiency by interacting with groupware and an
application server
