Unisys Corporation (UIS - Analyst Report) recently announced the introduction of ClearPath Libra 8290 enterprise server – the first Intel-based platform to outperform proprietary processors. Based on Intel’s (INTC - Analyst Report) Xeon processors, the ClearPath Libra 8290 is very competitive and triples the input/output performance of its predecessors that are based on proprietary CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) processor technology.

These solutions provide clients with greater power and capacity to handle their mission-critical applications and at the same time help them to address the new business challenges while protecting their investment.  It offers enterprise clients new industry-leading server options for their organizations and the highest level of computing performance.

ClearPath Libra 8290 provides certain environmental benefits over its earlier Libra systems. Unlike Libra 800, 8290 uses only one cabinet, reducing floor space by 50% and is expected to reduce energy consumption up to 64% over its predecessors.

The new high-end ClearPath server by Unisys provides organizations with new approaches in reducing costs, simplifying and securing their IT operations, and delivering IT services more cost effectively to end users, customers and citizens.

Based in Blue Bell, PA, Unisys specializes in helping clients to secure their operations, increase efficiency and utilize their data centers, enhance support to their end users and constituents, and modernize their enterprise applications. The primary markets that Unisys serves include financial services, communication and transportation, commercial and public sector, including the U.S. federal government.

Unisys currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Other stocks that look promising and are worth a look in the industry include Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (CY - Analyst Report) and TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc (TQNT - Analyst Report),  both carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
