Platform Solutions (PSI), developer of open mainframe servers, and NEC Corporation of America, have entered into an agreement for PSI to market and resell NEC's Express5800/1000 series server and D-series storage technology for enterprise data centers.

According to Irving, Texas-based NEC, customers can consolidate IBM z/OS, Microsoft Windows, and Linux in a single managed server bringing new levels of consolidation to the datacenter, when combined with PSI's open mainframe server technology.

The third-generation NEC Express5800/1000 series servers amplify the capability of the dual-core Intel Itanium 2 processor. Leveraging NEC's supercomputing and mainframe technology, such as low latency and high performance memory and crossbar interface, the Express5800/1000 series servers are designed for the high-end server market and offer the performance and reliability that enterprises require for mission critical operations, said Sunnyvale, Calif.-based PSI.
