TAMPA, Fla., April 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Savtira Corporation, a new provider of outsourced Cloud Commerce solutions, today announced it has selected Dell's PowerEdge C line of servers and solutions to deliver streamed media and applications from the cloud for the Savtira Cloud Commerce platform and Entertainment Distribution Network (EDN).
Dell Data Center Solutions is providing Savtira Corporation with a suite of High Performance Computing (HPC) products for the Tampa Data Center, including the Dell™ PowerEdge™ C410x PCIe expansion chassis running NVidia® Tesla™ M2070 GPUs on the Dell™ PowerEdge™ C6145 server.
"After a competitive evaluation we found that Dell's Data Center Solutions team provided a versatile and economical solution without sacrificing the performance we need for server-side streaming," said Timothy Roberts, CEO of Savtira. "According to NVidia, GPUs deliver the same performance as CPU's for 1/20 of the power consumption and 1/10 the cost. As we continue to grow our Entertainment Distribution Network, we see Dell as a long-term partner in this effort."
The Dell PowerEdge C410x PCIe expansion chassis generates an enormous amount of processing power on a very small footprint. A single NVIDIA Tesla M2070 GPU processor exceeds 400 cores. Multiply that times sixteen GPU's (the capacity of a single C410x) and you get a whopping amount of processing power that was only available before by using a very large number of CPU-based systems. As for footprint: a single PowerEdge C6145 can power two fully populated C410x's for a combined total of 33 Teraflops in just 7u.
Businesses will now be able to use Savtira's Carrier-Class Entertainment Distribution Network (EDN) to stream all digital media from the cloud to any device. All types of software and digital media (business applications, games, music, movies, audio/ebooks) are available to consumers on a rental or subscription basis. Not only is no download or installation necessary, but consumers will also have the ability to seamlessly switch between devices, pausing media on one device and resuming it on another as all data, state and configuration is stored within the cloud.
