Tatung Science and Technology and 3Up Systems used the Server Blade Summit last week to launch ultradense servers.
Tatung Science and Technology rolled out the TUD-4010, a 4U (7-inch) chassis that can hold up to 10 dual-processor blade servers running Intel 2.4GHz Xeon chips. The system features integrated switch and management blades, as well as hot-swappable server blades, and can support up to 200 Xeon chips in an industry-standard rack. Each server blade can run Linux or Windows. Pricing for the TUD-4010 starts at $9,980.
Startup 3Up Systems unveiled its first product, the CMS-4U. Its chassis holds 12 dual-Xeon blades, or 240 processors, in a rack. Integrated into the system are Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching and a single control panel for remote management. The CMS-4U supports Windows and Linux and is due in the third quarter.
