According to company officials, the scalable server can be expanded with single or dual Intel (News - Alert) 5500 Xeon processors and up to 96 GB DDR3 memory for maximum uptime for high-density monitoring and prevention. Up to 16 total drives for 32 TB of storage are also available for more sophisticated network analytic applications with extensive storage requirements.
"NEI's platform expertise and support services provide real value to software providers serving the security market," said Jeff Hudgins, vice president of marketing at NEI, in a statement.
Hudgins said that enterprise network threats are growing, and the company wants to make sure that the customers can deploy and service the increasingly sophisticated network security solutions their customers demand.
He said that the S-3000 R2 is purpose-built for a variety of network threat and mitigation applications.
According to company officials, the S-3000 R2 also features up to six full-height, full-length PCIe slots, as well as integrated hardware RAID, redundant AC or DC power, and hot swap enterprise class hard drives, all designed to provide maximum reliability for real-time, data-heavy security applications.
Company officials said that with NEI's Smart Services, customers can also receive full lifecycle management to ensure optimal performance of the server from design and development to deployment and in-field maintenance.
