NEC-Unisys mega-server

96 core model unveiled

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.
