A Deluge Of New Servers
Intel is calling Monday's processor launch the biggest ever, and server vendors were quick to agree.
Nearly all the tier-one and tier-two branded server vendors on Monday unveiled Nehalem-based servers ready to ship, while several custom server builders said they were ready to custom-build units for clients as soon as they placed their orders.
Common to all server vendors and their new rack-mount, blade and tower servers was an emphasis on not only the added performance from the new Xeon 5500 processor, but also their ability to significantly reduce power consumption and the data center footprint.
