Hivelocity Announces New Sandy Bridge Server Line

July 27, 2011 by · Comments Off on Hivelocity Announces New Sandy Bridge Server Line 

Hosting ServicesTampa FL – Hivelocity Hosting  announced this week they are introducing a new line of i5 Sandy Bridge dedicated servers.   The Intel i5 processor will be replacing the Core2Quad, which currently serves as the introductory line of servers Hivelocity offers.  As Core2Quads slowly fade away with end-of-life approaching, the quad-core i5’s will slide right into that lower pricing segment.

“We have worked with Supermicro to put together a very solid system at a really good price.  The end result is our customers get new Sandy Bridge servers that offer significantly more power than the older Core2Quads for about the same price they have paid for lesser systems in the past,” comments Hivelocity GM Steve Eschweiler.  “Our customers have given our E3-1230 Xeon Sandy Bridge server rave reviews  for the last few months and we anticipate the introduction of another Sandy Bridge system in the lower price spectrum to be just as popular, if not more.  Our customers love a powerful server and they love saving money even more, so the i5 should be a home run for everyone.”
