Intel Xeon X3400 Series

Businesses today rely heavily on the performance, as well as on the dependability of their computer network to make their companies more efficient, more productive and more competitive. Despite this, many still use PC solutions for their server systems. These desktop based technologies weren’t designed for the 24/7 multiuser type of workloads demanded of servers that are the backbone of the network. 

Whether your client is a large enterprise or a small medium business, the computer infrastructure is critical to the success of the company. Recommending systems that delivery server management functionality, have advanced diagnostics, proper thermal dynamics, and are validated across a large spectrum of applications such as Intel’s server solutions help VARs differentiate their value proposition as well provide a higher ROI to their clients.

One of the best options is the award winning Intel S3420GP series of server boards as well as the Intel Xeon X3400 series processor which have brought server performance and price to the small medium business server sweet spot. As with all Intel server solutions, these products offer businesses robust management functions, detailed diagnostic capabilities, and Intel’s renowned validation.
