Sun Rolls out Quad-Core Xeon Blade

Sun today announced the new Sun Blade X8450 server module, the first Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor-based blade for the Sun Blade 8000 modular system. Compared to other blade servers in its class, the Sun Blade X8450 server module delivers up to twice the memory capacity, internal storage, and integrated networking connectivity – giving customers more headroom to grow, virtualize, and save.
Sun has enjoyed significant customer growth for its entire line of Sun Blade systems, distinguishing Sun as the fastest-growing blades company in the world. Since re-entering the blades market in mid-2006, Sun has moved into the top 4 position in the blade server market, released 29 new blades and supporting products, and gained more than 300 new Sun Blade customers.
With a choice of AMD, Intel, or UltraSPARC T2 processors, Sun Blade systems make an excellent platform for HPC clusters like the TACC ranger supercomputer, which will be dedicated on February 22. Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
