Verari Systems announced the industry’s first blade-based hybrid server and storage system. The SB5255 DataServer combines two Intel 5300 series dual-socket, quad-core processors with the highest storage density available in a blade server. The combination of blade-based high capacity and low-cost storage with a high- performance blade server is a powerful enabler for a wide range of vertical markets where data and applications such as Web 2.0 need to be hosted on a single platform. Each Verari Systems SB5255 DataServer comprises a SB1205 server blade and two SB1056 disk blades. The SB1205 server blade delivers exceptional processing power via high performance dual-socket, quad-core processors with up to 16GB of memory while the two SB1056 disk blades hold 24 terabytes of RAID storage capacity.
