product details

Are you ready for enterprise-class Windows® in your data center? You won't find all of these features on any other Intel®-based server — only on the ES7000 Orion 540 server!

A midrange enterprise-class alternative to scaled out commodity servers, the ES7000 Orion 540 server is ideal for application consolidation and high-performance, large-scale databases.

The Unisys ES7000 Orion 540 server is a high-end system for leveraging the benefits of Microsoft® standardization into your data center. This rack-mount cell-based server with Intel® Xeon™ processors MP brings mainframe characteristics to Microsoft® Windows® operating environments.

The 32-bit performance leadership of the ES7000 Orion 540 enables you to get the most out of your mission-critical applications, such as business intelligence. The ability to divide it into four partitions makes it an ideal platform for consolidating applications and large-scale databases.

Features of the 32-bit Windows® on Intel® servers:
  • Scales up higher than any other 32-bit Intel® based server on the market
  • Can ultimately grow up to 4 cells with 32 CPUs, 64 GB memory, 32 IO slots and 4 partitions — plus 8 blade servers (PDF 240kb) for your Web/edge tier
  • An extra level of cache: 32 MB per 4-CPU module (256 MB total)
  • Unisys Sentinel management software for Windows® based ES7000 servers offers self-managing and self-healing functionality for your Windows® operating system and ES7000 hardware layer as well as for your applications and databases
  • Better performance, price-performance and availability than other high-end 32-bit commodity servers — while addressing requirements for even greater growth. And better price-performance overall than any UNIX-based server on the market!
This rack-mount pay-as-you-grow server delivers all of the same ES7000 frame-based server availability, manageability and performance, preserved in this compact design.
