"Compaq today released its long-awaited "Photon" server, putting
new pressure on IBM, Sun Microsystems, Network Engines and VA Linux
Systems in the race to cram as many processors into the thinnest
"The Photon server, officially called the ProLiant DL 360, holds
two 800-MHz Pentium III chips in a server just 1.75 inches thick, a
measurement called 1U among those who spend their time bolting
hundreds of such servers into racks in air-conditioned rooms."
"... Compaq expects 75 percent of Photons to run Windows NT
or 2000, 20 percent Linux and the rest Novell NetWare. The Photons
are well-suited to Web hosting, file and print services, streaming
audio and video, email and other specific jobs, said Paul Miller, a
marketing director at Compaq."
