PSSC Labs Announces “Greenest” New Eco Blade Server Platform for High Performance Computing

May 22, 2017 by · Comments Off on PSSC Labs Announces “Greenest” New Eco Blade Server Platform for High Performance Computing 

LAKE FOREST, CA – PSSC Labs, a developer of custom HPC and Big Data computing solutions, today announced its new Eco Blade server platform, the most energy efficient high performance blade server on the market.

The Eco Blade is a unique server platform engineered specifically for high performance, high density computing environments – simultaneously increasing compute density while decreasing power use. Eco Blade offers two complete, independent servers within 1U of rack space. Each independent server supports up to 64 Intel® Xeon® processor cores and 1.0 TB of enterprise memory for a total of up to 128 Cores and 2 TB of memory per 1U.

There is no shared power supply or backplane, a unique design feature that translates to power savings of up to 46% on a per server comparison with servers of similar capabilities from leading brands. By lowering the power consumption of these servers, PSSC Labs is offering the greenest server of its kind on the market, translating to lower lifetime ownership costs for institutions that adopt the Eco Blade servers.

According to the EPA, volume servers are responsible for 68% of all electricity consumed by IT equipment in data centers in 2006. A study by the US government found that in 2014 US data centers consumed about 70 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, making up 2% of the country’s total energy consumption. Using over 90% energy efficient power supplies and combining them with power saving features, the Eco Blade servers result in significant savings in energy costs over the lifetime of the product. Along with the significant reduction in power used, the Eco Blade is built using 55% recyclable material, it a move that cements PSSC Labs’ commitment to finding sustainable enterprise server solutions that reduce waste and powers progress.

“The global thirst for more computing power and storage see demand for volume servers and the resulting energy consumption to continue to rise. As an industry, it is our responsibility to find ways to reduce power consumption while still providing the computing ability needed to fuel cutting edge research and groundbreaking enterprises,” said Alex Lesser, Vice President of PSSC Labs. “PSSC Labs has taken a big step in engineering a HPC / data center server that does not compromise on performance but will significantly reduce power consumption. By deploying the Eco Blade server instead of traditional servers from other manufacturers, companies will reduce their cap ex and op ex while being good stewards of the environment.”

In addition to the lifetime saving in energy costs, the Eco Blade servers allow higher density rack configurations which reduce the amount of infrastructure and networking equipment required, translating to huge cost savings during the initial purchase as well as savings to recurring maintenance costs.

Eco Blade Technical Specs:

  • Supports 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2600v4 Processors
  • Up to 128 Processor Cores in just 1U of rack space (with hypertheading enabled)
  • Up to 1.0TB of High Performance ECC Registered System Memory Per Server

Webnames.ca Launches Domain Aftermarket

May 22, 2017 by · Comments Off on Webnames.ca Launches Domain Aftermarket 

VANCOUVER, BC – Webnames.ca, a leading provider of Internet solutions in Canada and the original .CA domain name registrar, continues to enhance its product portfolio by offering innovative solutions. Webnames.ca (http://www.webnames.ca) has now launched its Domain Aftermarket, a marketplace where its customers can buy and sell domain names. “A gateway to great names,” the domain aftermarket helps startups, businesses and brands find their ideal web address by exposing them to premium domains that are available to purchase every time they do a domain search.

A leader in BC’s business community and a determined advocate for businesses, Webnames.ca CEO Cybele Negris (http://www.cybele.ceo) moved to incorporate a marketplace for premium domains into Webnames product lineup after realizing that increasing numbers of businesses are beginning to understand the branding, search engine and marketing benefits of a relevant, compelling or memorable domain name. By offering a market to purchase premium domains owned by 3rd parties, prospective registrants would have a larger field of names to choose from, and potentially purchase the exact domain name they had originally envisaged for their brand, or a suitable alternative.

Unlike some of their competitors, Webnames.ca’s domain aftermarket is not an auction site, nor will it offer domains that are expiring. Webnames.ca wants domain buyers to be secure in the knowledge that they will actually get the domain name that they have added to their shopping cart. Many businesses don’t want to wait 3 days for a domain auction to end, with the potential that they could be outbid at the last minute, or cross their fingers that they will be the lucky buyer of an expiring domain name. Webnames wants to enable businesses to move forward and begin using their new domain assets as quickly as possible. Why some premium domains require a prospective buyer to request the price, the overwhelming majority of names in the domain aftermarket have a stated price and can be purchased in a matter of minutes.

“Our customers know that we are here to help them succeed with their venture – be it a new product, project or brand. With our new Domain Aftermarket, transparent pricing and simple purchasing, we’re trying to make getting a premium domain name easy,“ offers Negris. “Our goal with this service is to enable more businesses to get high quality domain names early on in their lifecycle, because we know the investment pays off in the long run.”

As with all of its services, Webnames differentiates itself from the competition through unparalleled support and a mandate to “amaze every customer with exceptional service” – a core value that applies to its Aftermaket Domain business also. “Our team of domain experts is here to help should buyers have any questions about the Aftermarket, the buying process for premium domains, or related services like Domain Brokering” explains Customer Support Manager Shawn Randhawa. “We take pride in the care and support we offer to both our longtime and new customers alike.”
