    It's always fascinating to see what they come up with. It's amazing how they manage to pack so much computing power into a single standalone system.

    Just noticed they have the wrong motherboard picture up for this. It shows a dual socket, but the X10SLE-DF is single socket with 4 memory slots.

    *edit

    Looks like the X10SLE-DF is a dual node motherboard. Crazy stuff.

    We're looking forward to those units as well. Boggles my mind how they can achieve such density.

    How does it works when you have a failing hard drive in one of the node? It has two nodes per blade if i'm correct, so you have to shut down two servers for replacing an hard disk?

    Looks like that is the case. However personally I would boot these from an iSCSI volume and put no drives in them, saves you the hassle.

    That chassi combined with a nice iscsi target host would make for a very potent high density setup

    It's a pitty it doesn't have a 10Gbe adapter option, even through a mezzanine card.

    Yeah, my thought exactly.

    However doing a 4gb bundle should be okay set aswell.

    I'm assuming the 4x 1GB ports are split 2 each between the 2 systems, so this only gives you a 2x1Gb bond for each node.

    True, still gives you some redundancy though. But yeah. would have been better with more possible throughput - seeing as those are pretty powerfull servers.

    Wow, very impressive. Too bad there's not an option with 2x 10GBASE-T per node... that together with network storage... yummy

    What worries me is the backplain is a single point of failure. I would prefer to spread the risk with 1u units.
