Hivelocity Announces New Sandy Bridge Server Line

Web HostingTampa 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.”

Intel’s latest generation of servers offer increased power, less energy consumption and  cater to the higher needs virtualization technology requires.   Each chip includes turbo-boost 2.0 technology which allows the chip to provide extra needed power exactly when and where it is needed.   Similar to how new car’s engines are able to turn cylinders off and on to save fuel and to provide sufficient power when needed, Sandy Bridge processors are able to surge and subdue power to use only the power required to achieve the task efficiently.  As virtualization and cloud technology become more prevalent, Intel’s chips continue to address the needs to support this sector.

Hivelocity specializes in dedicated server hosting and offers systems starting at $59 per month.  The EOL Core2Quad systems start at $99 with the i5 currently priced at $139 per month.  The i5 Sandy Bridges include twice the memory as the Core2Quads however.  Hivelocity servers are provided by Dell and Supermicro exclusively.   Hivelocity has recently opened a brand new data center in Tampa Florida.
