"The first systems to appear under the new moniker are the UP2000+ mobo supporting dual Alpha 833 MHz processors, and the rack mount CS20 clustering server which API claims is the world's most powerful 1U server and also the first 1U dual-processor Alpha server, delivering 3.3 GFLOPS. Up to 42 CS20s, producing a total of 140 GFLOPS, can be housed in a single rack."

"Both support Linux in firmware which boots directly at power on, along with dual on-board Ethernet controllers and remote administration."
