Acer, which over the past couple of years has muscled its way into becoming one of the top PC manufacturers in the world, is now looking to reclaim a part of the highly competitive U.S. server market.
Acer on Feb. 21 unveiled a lineup of server and storage offerings powered by x86 processors from both Intel and Advanced Micro Devices and aimed at a number of areas of the market, from SMBs to cloud computing environments.
The product rollout comes about a year after Acer reinvigorated its data center offerings with new servers and storage products in the European market, and several years after it made its last efforts to establish a toehold in the United States.
&"Acer has steadily built one of the broadest lines of server and storage solutions in the world, and now we are bringing this offering to the U.S. to meet customer demands for cost-effective performance, simplified management, flexible scalability and return on storage investments over time," Gianluca Degliesposti, vice president of worldwide business development for Acer's Servers and Storage business unit, said in a statement. "Our initial family of 16 server solutions also leverages our deep expertise in virtualization, multi-node architectures and HPC to meet increasingly challenging needs in cloud computing and other complex computing applications."
