Radisys RMS420-5520DT Drives Performance Edge With Addition Of Intel Xeon Processor 5600 Series and Intel 5520 Chipsets

Radisys High Performance Embedded Server Provides Maximum Compute Performance in a Single Platform

HILLSBORO, OR — March 16, 2010 — Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a leading global provider of application–ready software and hardware platforms, today announced the release of its second–generation Procelerant™ RMS420–5520DT, a high–performance embedded server platform now available with the newly–unveiled Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series. Radisys will now offer the RMS420–5520DT with the long–life quad–core Intel® Xeon® processor E5620 at 2.4 GHz and six–core Intel® Xeon® processor E5645 at 2.4 GHz. Designed for compute–intensive applications, the RMS420–5520DT combines high memory bandwidth, exceptional I/O capability and multi–core processors for significant performance increases and improved energy efficiency for applications such as medical imaging, video streaming and high–end test and measurement. Ideal for parallel processing, in many applications the RMS420–5520DT server can replace two previous generation servers, providing customers maximum compute performance in a single platform, enhanced functionality and reduced costs through system consolidation.

“Our embedded servers provide the industry–leading compute power that our customers’ high–performance applications require, and with the addition of Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series to the Procelerant RMS420–5520DT, we are able to deliver to our customers the latest Intel processing technology in conjunction with its market entry,” said Michael Reunert, Product Line Manager, Radisys. “By offering a scalable embedded solution, we enable our customers to hit their price and performance targets, in addition to freeing up engineering resources for developing value–add applications.”

The Procelerant RMS420–5520DT is the latest Radisys embedded server, designed specifically for parallel processing, incorporating high–performance multi–core Intel® Xeon® processors, and offering support for high–performance graphics cards and/or additional co–processors. By leveraging the latest Intel processors, Radisys’ embedded servers can continue to deliver on the promise of Moore’s law, offering one or two high–performance multi–core processors for up to 12 total CPU cores in a single server.

Built on industry standards, Radisys’ embedded servers enable Original Equipment Manufacturers to leverage years of industry–leading embedded systems design expertise, optimizing a computing solution with design features that meet their specific application needs. Procelerant servers are only 20 inches deep, versus other providers’ typical 26 or 30 inches, allowing for a smaller application form factor—a critical benefit in space–constrained environments. In addition, Radisys encases high levels of processing power within specially designed, noise reducing chassis, allowing equipment manufacturers to build devices that can operate safely and quietly in close proximity to technicians and patients. Given long regulatory approval cycles and equipment manufacturers’ product lifecycles, Radisys works closely with its customers to deliver long–term product availability with strict engineering change control.

About the Radisys Procelerant™ RMS420–5520DT

The Procelerant RMS420–5520DT features single or dual, quad–core or six–core processors from the Intel® Xeon® processor E5600 series with integrated DDR3 memory controllers and dual Intel® E5520 chipsets, which provide 72 lanes of PCI Express® 2.0 connectivity. The standard server offers 3×16, 2×8 and 2×4 PCI Express 2.0 slots. The optional on–board RAID controller replaces one of the x8 slots. The RMS420–5520DT can be equipped with power supplies up to 1200W and cooling to support up to three, 225W co–processor cards and additional I/O. A variety of server configurations are available including up to six 3.5″ or ten 2.5″ SATA or SAS hard disk drives. The RMS420–5520DT also supports extended operating temperatures and meets EMC Class–B radiated emission standards.
