NEC appoints ILA Microservers as Smart Enterprise Business Partner for its Smart DX Microserver Series

Hilversum, 9th May, 2017 – NEC Enterprise Solutions, a global leader in enterprise Communications & IT solutions, today announced that it has appointed Dutch ILA Microserver as its first business partner in Europe with a focus on the Smart  DX microserver series. ILA Microservers will provide end-customers and technology partners with solutions based on the NEC platform. NEC’s DX microserver series provides a highly scalable solution, allowing customers to start from a small configuration, scaling up to tremendous numbers of compute cores per industry standard racks. Optimized for real-time parallel processing in today’s Big Data and Internet of Things (IoT) era, the DX series is also suitable for high-speed and redundant NW requirements for cloud workloads.

Fred Buining, co-founder and CEO of ILA Microservers says: “The NEC DX series with 3 types of Intel® Xeon®-D server nodes is the ultimate hardware for low and medium compute workloads. Hyperscalers, cloud builders and large enterprises can use the DX series for serving, storage, or network function virtualisation. In Oil & Gas, Finance, Industry 4.0 applications the DX series can be used for Big Data analysis, benefiting from its tremendous memory bandwidth performance. The DX2000 is the ideal system for scale out workloads. With its Xeon D processors it provides a better performance/ Watt then the Xeon E3 servers and if we look at the TCO it can even compete with some of the lower end E5 'pizza box' servers. The DX series saves energy, space, labour and provides an unprecedented performance/ Watt for Intel processors.”  

Buining continues: “Our customers cannot risk any disruptions in their business processes and need hardware they not only can rely on but that also creates value in their business processes. NEC has a long tradition of driving hardware innovation and an excellent service. Partnering with NEC ensures that our customers not only today can buy the most innovative, reliable and cost effective hardware but also for the future”.

Tonko Wedda, managing director Benelux and Nordics, is very happy with ILA Microservers: “ILA Microservers is the ideal partner for NEC to build new successes with the DX platform. Their focus is extremely important to become a strategic player in this relatively new market. Together we will continue to build use cases and develop new business models that will fit the IoT era.”
