Dell promises Nehalem servers, new services news this week

The number three server vendor is expected to announce Nehalem EP-based servers and new services offerings on Thursday.

Dell plans to announce in the next few days new servers and services offerings, the company's chief executive said Tuesday.

"We have a very big announcement coming in the next few days around the Intel Nehalem architecture, our eleventh-generation enterprise architecture, along with new improvements in our services offering and enhancements to our EquilLogic storage offering," said Michael Dell at a Tokyo news conference.

Dell has scheduled a news conference in San Francisco for Thursday morning at which the announcements, further details of which were not available on Tuesday, are expected to be made.

Intel is expected to announce next week the launch of the Nehalem EP microprocessors and has allowed server vendors to begin disclosing their plans for the chip ahead of the official launch.

Apple was first in line when it announced on March 3 new Mac Pro workstations that are powered by Xeon 3500 and 5500 quad-core chips, which are part of the Nehalem EP family. On Tuesday Lenovo became the second major vendor to back Nehalem EP.

Shortly after Dell finished speaking in Tokyo it announced its high-end ThinkStation D20 and low-end ThinkStation S20 workstations will run on Xeon 3500 and 5500 series chips.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
