EMC (NYSE: EMC), NEC (NASDAQ:NIPNY) and Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) have delivered a new solution for Microsoft SharePoint 2010. At the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2011, EMC and NEC announced a storage and server configuration solution for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 that includes EMC VNX unified storage and NEC Express Server configuration--powered by Intel Xeon E7 processor family.

According to EMC, the tested configuration enables 108 million database documents stored, searched, and retrieved. Together, EMC and NEC--armed with the latest Intel processor technologies--help enable SharePoint 2010 customers to scale densely with a cost-effective overall solution.


"The tested configuration leveraged a VNX 5700, powered by the latest Intel processors. The VNX delivered the capacity, density and performance to generate the large amount of content used during testing. The VNX was then used to do search and retrieval tests-with zero performance degradation.

"NEC's Express 5800/A1080a scalable, high-performance server features Intel® Xeon® E7 processor family with 10-core, eight sockets for a total of 80 total cores, a highly effective configuration for processor-intensive requirements such as Microsoft FAST Search and SQL Server. These additional cores, additional cache and faster clock speed contributed to the scalability results of the tested configuration.

"The testing configuration included an additional NEC server to support a large number of SharePoint applications virtualized with Microsoft Hyper-V using a 64-core server.

"NEC's Express5800/A1080a server can accommodate up to two terabytes (TB) of memory and 160 threads with modular in-box partitioning in an innovative single 7U chassis."
