Intel® is a world leader in computing innovation, designing and building the essential technologies that serve as the foundation for the world’s computing devices. On April 5, 2011, Intel announced the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 family, an entry-level server processor built to meet the unique demands of small business applications, ranging from collaboration tools to storage and back-up applications. This new processor family is supported by Intel’s new motherboard family, the Intel Server Board S1200BT (also called “Bromolow”). The Bromolow server platform (S1200BT) ships with the Pilot 3 integrated Baseboard Management Controller (iBMC) embedded in it.
The Pilot 3 iBMC, an integrated lights-out management controller, is ideal for server and storage manufacturers looking for a remote management solution to keep pace with enterprises’ always-on, globally distributed environments. The new Intel S1200BT server family is based on the Intel Sandy Bridge microarchitecture, and leverages the Intel C200 chipset. The Emulex Pilot 3 iBMC is the premier microcontroller embedded in new server designs, extending the triple-core architecture with enhancements geared at the new Intel processor, offering faster speeds, support for more ports, additional sensors and reduced power requirements.
