Intel unleashes management tool to accompany channel server onslaught

Heather Clancy Heather Clancy Profile: Heather Clancy

As part of its latest server technology onslaught for custom systems builders and other channel resellers focused on hardware innovation, Intel has introduced a management tool specifically designed for custom server builders and the VARs deploying servers using its latest processor line.

The introduction is part of Intel’s massive server microprocessor, motherboard and component refresh rolling out this quarter, the Xeon Processor E5-2600 series. That technology is at the heart of server refresh wave from many major OEMs, and the tools introduced this week by Intel at its premier channel event, the Intel Solutions Summit, are its latest competitive weapons for the channel.

Lest you worry that Intel has focused too heavily on the needs of big OEMs, Intel has shipped eight new motherboards and four new chassis specifically designed for the needs of custom server builders.

There are now more than 50 different solution guides now available for the Xeon Processor E5-2600 as part of the Intel Enabled Solutions Acceleration Alliance. Channel system builders including Appro, Bell, Penguin Computing, Seneca, Proactive Technologies, SuperLogics, sgi and ZT Systems have all come to market with new servers designe to server the needs of data center VARs.

The new software management suite that accompanies the new server line is called the Intel Server Continuity Suite. The software was designed to aid with real-time monitoring, backup, and virtualization provisioning. It complements all of the different server configuration supported in Intel’s channel-focused portfolio, including rack, pedestal and modular.
