"BSDi, the leader in Internet infrastructure-grade solutions, announced today its iXtreme Series 1U rackmount Internet servers -- the industry's first dual-processor 1U systems with dual hot-swappable hard drives."

"The iXtreme Series 1U systems architecture is based on BSDi's new Internet infrastructure-grade systems chassis technology that enables dual processors and dual removable hard drives in the compact 1U form factor popular with ISPs and co-location facilities," said Mark Garver, BSDi's Group Executive, Internet Systems Division. "While general-purpose server manufacturers simply build their systems to order based on a limited set of off-the-shelf configurations, BSDi customizes each iXtreme Series system specifically to our customers' most demanding configuration requirements."

"The iXtreme Series provides a breakthrough to Internet data centers and co-location facilities that are seeking to implement rackmount Internet server systems with the best price/performance combined with the highest density per rack unit. iXtreme Series 1U servers can fill an Internet data center to its maximum density with up to 42 servers per standard 19" rack. The iXtreme Series' innovative new 1U form factor optimizes precious rackspace without sacrificing performance, expandability, flexibility, availability, or serviceability, reducing footprint requirements and providing top return on investment especially for server hosting at co-location sites."
