Giada USA Announces Affordable Micro Server for Small Businesses and Home – GT200
2-Bay Dual Core Celeron Based Server features Low Power Consumption and Active Hardware Control for Reliability
July 22, 2015, Brea, California – Giada Technology, a provider of Micro Servers, Mini-PCs and embedded motherboards, announces its new GT200 Micro Server entry level server for small businesses and homes. The GT200 is powered by a high-performing Intel®1037U dual-core processor with a TDP of just 17W. With 2 hot-swappable SATA 3.0 drive bays, an mSATA bootable SSD slot, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and Giada’s own Active Hardware Control technology, the GT200 packs enterprise features into a compact tower server less than 7 inches tall.
“We priced the GT20 0 within reach of small businesses and designed it to use much less power than a typical rackmount or tower server. In our tests a GT200 fully loaded with 2 SATA drives, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and an mSATA SSD consumed less than 30W at 93% CPU utilization,” said Jessica Hsu, Giada USA Sales Director. “It’s perfect for American entrepreneurs seeking to maximize work per dollar.”
Dual Core Performance at 17W TDP
Featuring a Intel®1037U dual-core processor running at speeds up to 1.8GHz, the GT200 is able to handle application server workloads with just 17W TDP. The Celeron-based GT200 outperforms Atom servers yet uses much less energy than Xeon or Pentium based servers. Small businesses can cut energy costs with the GT200 while supporting office services such as print, email, ERP, surveillance or file sharing. Even home users can afford to run it 24/7.
Intel RST for Storage Performance and Reliability
With support for Intel’s Rapid Storage Technology, the 2 hot-swappable SATA 3 Drive bays can be configured for RAID 0 or RAID 1 for storage performance and reliability. Both 2.5″& 3.5″ size SSD or hard drives are supported for storage flexibility.
Giada Patented Active Hardware Control
GT200 supports Giada’s Patented JAHC Active Hardware Control technology. Through an easy-to-use interface, the GT200 can be programmed for scheduled Wake Ups, Auto Power On after AC Loss and scheduled power-offs. These self-managing features increase server reliability and reduce the need for user management.
Dual Gigabit Ethernet for Speed and Reliability
Dual Gigabit Ethernet connections on the GT200 let users take advantage of link aggregation for higher speeds or high network availability.
OS Acceleration with mSATA Boot Drive
Flash is fast but expensive. With the GT200’s mSATA SSD slot, users can speed up boot times and operating system performance with a fast and affordable SATA III mSATA SSD no matter what main storage they use. Storage space and value can be maximized with high capacity hard drives or affordable SSDs in the hot swappable drive bays while accelerating the OS using mSATA flash.
GT200 will be available in August 2015 at the MSRP of US$ 320.
