The Irvine, Calif., company this week is rolling out the Gateway 9510 Series tower serverwhich will replace the 960 and 980 systemsand two new rack-mount systems, the 1U (1.75-inch) 9315 and 2U (3.5-inch) 9515. The servers support the latest processor technology from Intel Corp., including EM64T, which enables the systems to run both 32- and 64-bit applications. They also support Intels E7520 and E7320 chip sets, as well as an 800MHz front-side bus, Hyper-Threading technology, PCI Express and faster DDR2 memory.
The 9510 was able to replace two other towers because of its flexibility, including up to 10 hot-swap drive baysup to six SATA (Serial ATA) drives or 10 SCSI drivesas well as redundant power supplies and fans, said Tim Diefenthaler, senior director of product marketing at Gateway.
