"VA Linux Systems, a computer maker that concentrates on building and customizing Linux servers, has released a new model designed to be stacked as tightly as possible."

"The FullOn 2x2 has two Pentium processors and is 3.5 inches tall--a height of 2 "U" in the lingo of those who bolt computers to racks to cram as many as possible in a given amount of floor space. One expected use for the system: serving up Web pages to Internet surfers."

"The FullOn 2x2s cost between $2,825 and $18,787. They can accommodate as much as 180GB of data storage space spread across five hard disks. The innards of the servers can be accessed without tools, and drives can be removed and added without having to turn the system off, VA said."
