Intel Corp. has announced the SSR212MC2, touted to be the industry's first 2U, 12-drive integrated quad-core storage server for the small- and medium-sized business markets.

Powered by the quad-core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series, the new rack-mount server can be configured as a broad range of enterprise and small business storage solutions, including network-attached storage, storage area network and application servers.

The SSR212MC2 also comes with an option of including one or two dual-core Intel Xeon 5100 series processors, as well as a choice of enterprise-class serial-attached SCSI or high-capacity serial ATA hard drives. The SSR212MC2 uses Xyratex's 2U chassis that delivers power, package and cooling technology to top OEMs.

"Intel has made it easier and more cost-effective for storage solution providers to bring enterprise-class storage solutions to businesses of all sizes with this highly customizable system," said Mike Wall, general manager, Intel storage group. "With more than twice the performance improvement over our previous product generation, the SSR212MC2 hardware platform provides resellers and integrators a high-performing building block upon which they can build effective solutions."

Intel's SSR212MC2 storage server cost $2,800 MSRP with no RAID controller and $3,600 MSRP with the Intel SRCSAS144e RAID controller. It will be available from participating Intel partners in May.
