Custom Built Business Workstations

ERP Solutions & Auditing, LLC’s creates a unique line of custom built High-speed, Paradox™ Business Workstations.  All carry full manufacturer’s warranties handled by us and all come with our unique custom “No Data Loss Guarantee.”  (Review our no data loss

Contract for details).

We pride ourselves on responsiveness to unique client requests, however to maintain our reputation of selling some of the most Powerful Workstations for businesses and to know for certain we have provided a client the best solution for their dollar, while configurations may vary, there are certain components and specifications we require. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” way of doing business and at first our requirements may seem to be the most expensive selections.  This is only until our clients find out they have been paying double or more for ½ the power and reliability. 

Our Required Components Total Three/Four

designed by erpsaa
1. The Mainboard (single or dual LGA 2011)
2. Intel® CPUs.

3. PCIe 3.0 or PCIe 2.0 HW RAID for storage, unless a client selects a single drive.

4. ECC Registered RAM. While we will not force a client to use ECC Registered Memory, and while most of the the server and Workstation Mainboards we use will run either see below for our reasoning.

 

There are no exceptions to numbers 1 and 2 and the only exception to 3 is a rare single disk build.

 

intel-core-i7-extreme-processor-logoWe build a Workstation with only an Intel® board which conforms to Server System Infrastructure (“SSI”) standards and more specifically, only an LGA 2011 Socket, running Intel’s 600 series or X79 series chip sets.  The expansion lanes are PCIe 3.0, however, upon a client’s request there are both Intel® and ASUS Mainboards which conform to the Intel® specs as indicated, however as one example a client may request a PCI slot.  This applies to both single and dual CPU builds.

 

asus-logoWe use Intel® CPUs for single CPU Workstations and then only the Intel® Core™ i7-3930X Processor Extreme Edition, the Intel® Core™ i7-3960X Processor Extreme Edition, the Intel® Core™ i7-3970X Processor Extreme Edition, or the Intel® Core™ i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E, all of which are PCIe 3.0 compliant.

 

 

For Dual CPU’s we typically recommend the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 line, however, as long as a client selects an an LGA 2011 Intel® Xeon® processor we’re fine with that.  Experience has taught, under heavy loads the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 line runs cool with minimal effort.

 

As indicated above, we highly suggest the use of ECC RAMDownload this .PDF to understand exactly why. As we mentioned, most of the Mainboards we sell accept both ECC and Non ECC (unbuffered), and we only sell Mainboards certified to run 24x7x365 at load and the propensity for error begins with Memory and ECC Memory can avoid such errors. 

 

As an example, we often use the ASUS Z9PE-D8-WS board. Feel free to download the specs and note, the Quad Channel Memory Architecture with ECC RAM can use up to 256GB while only 64GB may be used with Non-ECC.xenon-cpu

 

Lastly, our specialty is in the unique Storage Arrays we implement so far with each Workstation we have sold.  All are RAID-0 (unless a client requests otherwise) combined with pre-installed Enterprise Backup and Restore, as well as our “No Data Loss Guarantee,” on all RAID implementations, including RAID-0. The fastest Workstations run at speeds of up to 12 GB/s SAS and at Full Scaling when using SATA600 SSD’s all implemented at RAID-0, with an LSI PCIe 3.0 Hardware RAID Card, Dual Core RAID on Chip (ROC) CPU with 1GB RAM.

Storage Arrays & a Build

We’ll build any type of storage array using any type of disks a client requests.

Intel-Gold-Partner

ERP Solutions & Auditing, LLC is not only an Intel® Technology Gold Partner, we have attained the status of Technical Experts for both Business and Consumers. Our Paradox™ line of Workstations cost 2/3 to 1/2 the

price of commercial products, yet run at higher speeds, and carry a no data loss guarantee.  We have yet to find

one commercial vendor who builds storage arrays the way we do and also guarantees no data loss, while delivering Workstations with Pre-installed Enterprise Backup and Restore.  

 

lsi-prefesrred-logo The pictures below have been built with a Full Tower, accommodating (ATX, CEB and EATX), 4 Hot Swap Bays, two 5.25” Thermaltake Backplanes, each with two 40MM Fans, and each of which hold 6 x 2.5” SAS or SATA600 SSD’s, for a total of 12. The Hot Swap Bays holds 4 x 3.5” HDDs, or SSD’s and there is space for 2 more 3.5” HDD’s, or a redundant PSU.  

 

The storage array contains 8 x 240GB Vertex 3 SSDs, 90,000 IOPS each and are run with an LSI® 9271 8i MegaRAID™ Gen 2 PCIe 3.0 x8 “ROC” Dual Core 800 MHz processor with 1 GB of DDR3 RAM.

 

The Mainboard is the ASUS P9X79 Workstation Board, SSI CEB and has 7 lanes of PCIe 3.0, for a total of 40 lanes, none of which are Legacy and which runs 24x7x365.    

 

The HW RAID LSI® 9271 8i MegaRAID™ Card is pictured with a small $7 exhaust fan built to go with the card and whichlsi-9271-hw-megaraid-pcie 3.0

removes more heat, cooling the card well below Spec. 

 

The CPU is an Intel® Core™ i7-3960X Processor Extreme Edition which runs at an average clock speed of 4.5MHz and rarely makes it over 47 degrees Centigrade, with one Thermaltake® Self-contained CPU Radiator cooling system and 7 fans, strategically placed. 

 

There are two ASUS GeForce GTX 660 GPU’s, non SLI, 4Gb.  They are used to power dual 1920 x 1080i Monitors, with no concern for oversampling.

 

 

What follows are some photographs which do much better at

explaining how our Workstations are built.

The ATTO Bench was run using 8 x 240 GB Vertex 3 Max IOPS (90,000 each) SSDs at RAID-0.  Each drive has a Read speed of 530 MB/s and a Write speed of 510 MB/s.
