Wednesday 9 March 2005 09:19 CET | News

Teradata, a division of NCR, has started shipment of the sleek NCR 5400 Server that accelerates the Teradata Warehouse performance by 20 percent with the capability to handle increased data volume.

The Teradata enterprise data warehouse solution, supported by the NCR 5400 Server performance boost and the Teradata database, enables Teradata customers to make better, faster business decisions. In addition to performance, the NCR 5400 Server cabinet has up to a 40 percent smaller footprint, which optimizes the use of data center floor. The cabinets efficient design can now support up to 10 nodes or processing units, an improvement over the 4 nodes accommodated by the previous cabinet. The patent-pending design revolutionizes the manner in which the coldest room air is channeled through the cabinet effectively cooling the nodes and providing a 30 percent boost in storage reliability. The NCR 5400 Server supports current 32-bit and future 64-bit solutions leveraging the Dual Intel Xeon EM64T 3.6 GHz processor technology with hyper-threading. This hyper-threading design allows a single processor to manage data as if it were two processors by handling data instructions in parallel rather than one at a time, increasing system performance and throughput. The NCR 5400 Server has been configured to coexist with five previous generations of NCR servers providing customers with protection for investments made in prior technology. Instead of replacing older generations of servers when the data warehouse expands, businesses can incrementally grow their data warehouse with a new NCR server while using previous models and maximizing their investments.
