The graphics processing units should speed up server performance in specific-use cases, the company said. The blades include two full-length PCI-Express slots that will be able to accommodate up to two 250-watt graphics cards
Cisco's recent decision to develop its own blade servers may have angered IBM, HP and others in that market. As a result, server vendors are aligning themselves with Cisco competitors in the networking space
Startup Teak Technologies has debuted a 10G Ethernet switch for blade servers. The hook is a new traffic-management and congestion-detection technology built into the hardware, which, the company says, eliminates latency and makes standard 10G connections look slow.
