Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

Dell is jumping on Intel's Extended Memory 64-bit Technology (EM64T) bandwagon pretty hard these days, but it is really moving product with the help of Linux.

The Round Rock, Texas-based computer maker listed two new workstations at its online store Wednesday. The Dell Precision 470n and 670n workstations run on Intel's latest Xeon Nocona processors with its coordinating Tumwater chipset.

Pricing for the 1U or 2U towers start at $1,603 for the 470n with an option for three hard drives and $1,903 for the 670n with space for four hard drives. The standard configuration includes a 2.80GHz Xeon with 1MB L2 cache, which can be upgraded all the way to a 3.40GHz chip.
