The CPU will effectively replace current Pentium D processors, which some system makers--including Dell and IBM--have been using to power entry-level servers for small businesses.
The server, which it showed off at LinuxWorld, has a 64-bit processor, is reportedly low-power, and has an integrated Gigabit Ethernet controller and encryption.
NEC on Tuesday plans to unveil its first Linux offering for the channel: The Express5800/320Ma high-availability server, now certified for Red Hat Linux.
Mobile PCs are more integrated than desktops, Moorhead said in an interview with Computer Reseller News, a fact that plays into the company's ATI acquisition. "When you look at our ability to more tightly integrate the design, validation, firmware, and software tools, it leads to a much better stable image platform," Moorhead says.
IBM says it plans to offer its high-availability options to four-way through eight-way systems. The options have, until now, been available only on 16-way and 32-way servers.
