NEC and Unisys have revealed the first fruits of their research collaboration by launching a high-end server.
The new server, with 96 core/16 processor capability, has been designed to offer mainframe-class reliability and assist in large scale server consolidation. It will use Intel's new Dunnington six-core Xeon chipset. The new server has been aimed at tasks such as database-intensive activities, ERP and server consolidation.
NEC and Unisys signed a joint deal in 2006 in an attempt to reduce research and development costs.
The server will initially be available only in Japan.
