"Intel is aiming to tackle the small-business server market with its first server platform based on the Atom processor.

"Unveiled here today at the CeBit trade show in Germany, Intel's new take on the Atom -- the processor most widely associated with the popular netbook form factor -- relies on coupling the CPU with a low-end server integrated chipset. The idea is that the combination will provide enough power to satisfy the storage needs of home, small office/home office (SOHO), and SMB customers without breaking the bank or fattening their energy bill.

"This is not the first Atom-based server, but it is the first from Intel (NASDAQ: INTC).

"In its design, Intel paired its Atom D410 and D510 processors with the ICH9R chipset normally used in desktop and low-end server PCs. There are no new chips here: Intel simply validated two previously unpaired parts to make sure they would work well together."
