Ace Computers and Ace Tech Partner to Bring in Custom Server Advances

By CIOReview | Wednesday, September 2, 2015

CHICAGO, IL: Custom server builders and its associate, Ace Computers and Ace Technology Partners release server related advances following up the major order received by them from U.S. Air Force for custom servers through the company’s NETCENTS 2 contract. This builds a year of outstanding contract sales for both NETCENTS 2 and SEWP V. Jointly the two contracts sum up to a total potential value of over 44 Bn dollars.

John Samborski, CEO of both affiliates says, “We’ve been very busy with HPC orders lately and custom server orders have also increased. Of course those two contracts are responsible for much of this business, but our private sector business is also performing very well.”

Ace Computers’ Vice President Marc Fertik adds more about the servers based on Intel Xeon processors and says, “We are starting to see more interest in quad socket systems built around the Intel Xeon E7-4800/E7-8800 v3 and the Intel Xeon E5-4600 v3 platforms. They offer significant processing power for virtualization in applications where the end user needs to run many virtual machines on a single physical machine. They also support very large memory configurations of 6TB and 3TB respectively using 64GB LRDIMM. We have sold both of these types of systems recently to a wide range of clients-both public and private sector.”

InfoWorld reports that it is non surprising as the market for the custom servers are the fastest growing when compared to any other technology sector. It saw around 47 percent increase in 2013 and anticipates an even higher figure of growth for 2015.  The growth in this market is in sync with resource-intensive HPCs and supercomputers, which require increasingly powerful, customized servers—basically what Ace Computers is experiencing now.
