MSI today announced its first 64-bit server barebone for AMD Opteron processors. The barebone is designed in 1U form-factor and may become an interesting option for enterprises looking for cost-effective rack-servers.

MSI’s K1-1000 server supports up to 2 AMD Opteron CPUs with up to 12GB of PC2700 registered memory, is based on AMD 8111 I/O bridge and AMD 8131 PCI-X tunnel. It has built-in dual Gigabit Ethernet controllers from Broadcom, 2 PCI-X slots and optionally provides a high-speed Ultra SCSI 320 interface. Surely, the server has ATI’s Rage XL graphics chip onboard and grants SMBus (I2C) and temperature, voltage, and fan monitoring features.

The MSI K1-1000 server also supports the latest uStar Server Managenent function developed by MSI, and the uStar Server Managenent includes MMS (MSI Server Management Suite) server management solution, that carries out the remote control and surveillance functions of the Server Management through a MSI proprietary server management software, iConsole.

Pricing and availability details were not issued at press time.
