Hivelocity, a global provider of bare-metal servers, edge-compute, colocation and cloud hosting services, announced today its dedicated servers are now available with Intel’s latest generation coffee-lake Xeon processors.
Intel’s latest generation of Xeon E processors introduce additional cores and higher clock speeds when compared to the previous generation. Hivelocity will be offering both the 6 core E-2236 and the 8 core E-2278G processors. The latter not only includes the Intel UHD Graphics P630 integrated onto the chips’ die, the “G” in the part number stands for “graphics”, but also offers a base clock speed of 3.40 GHz with an amazing 5.0 GHz possible with the turbo feature.
“Our customers are doing some really incredible stuff and seem to have an ever increasing thirst for more cores and higher clock-speeds. Intel’s latest Xeon E processors provide us with the ability to give our customers a very power entry level bare-metal solution for around a hundred bucks,” said Hivelocity COO, Steve Eschweiler.
“More and more customers are spinning up large volumes of these entry level servers, instead of fewer higher end systems, and using Kubernetes to spread the workloads across the many servers while giving them increased redundancies,” he added.
Hivelocity was founded in 2002 and provides it suite of IaaS and Edge-Compute solutions from its data centers in Atlanta, Amsterdam, Chicago, Dallas, Frankfurt, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Jose, Seattle and Tampa.
