    New Dell Servers C

    Very interesting.... We will see the price and how they compare for example against R710; C2100 seems a R710 / R510 Mix

    Good luck on the Fortuna. We were told they were designed for "many hundreds" of nodes, not the dozens we were initially looking at. Think 6 figures to get started...at least that's the way it was when they first came out.

    Upon contacting our Dell rep for a quote on the C6100 it was somewhere around $30,000 list price - fully populated with 4x slides (servers), 2x E5520 Proc + 16GB RAM and 300GB 15K SAS HDD.

    This is still high even after factoring our Corporate discount. Hopefully, the price will come down after a few months.

    The C1100 reminds me of rackable's. It can't be too difficult to come up with a new brand name.

    It reminds me of the older Intel Xeon servers.

    Those do indeed look interesting. I would love to get some more specs on those. Really curious about the power requirements.

    From the information provided to us, the C6100 with 4 sledges fully populated takes about 12+ amps of power - they are power hungry which is unfortunate.

    That's probably what the power supply is rated, which usually is higher than the actual power consumption.

    so does each node have its own memory slots or do all four nodes share a common bank of memory?

    c6100 has the same concept as supermicro quad-node 2U superserver (2026TT-HTRF;~$2700):
    http://www.supermicro.com/products/s...IBQRF.cfm?INF=
    4 independent hardware nodes (board+CPUs+RAM+HDDs) housed by 4 independent hot-swap node tray. the only thing shared by all 4 nodes is the dual redundant PSU. regardless Dell or SM, we must prey that the power distribution backplane is super duper reliable, otherwise a bad power backplane can bring down all 4 nodes!

    as stated many times before, these types of twin-node 1U or quad-node 2U hardly make any sense unless the power consumption is under the ever-standard 0.8amp(120v)/U power allocation. thus far, only Atom based nodes (under 0.4amp/node) can be low enough to be seriously considered to have reasonable 2-node/U density.

    Not that it will impact most of you, but I was told Dell isn't officially supporting any Windows OS other than 'Azure' (the cloud platform) and a couple select linux installs. While I'm sure 2003/2008 would run because of available drivers, Dell isn't going to support it, so if there's a problem you're on your own. At the price they are asking it's not easy to entirely pass the support chain.

    I didn't get concrete pricing, but my guess of 2-2.5x the price of an equivalent 1U per node is in the ball park. They are targeting the platform entire at the HPC market and users like 'Facebook' (not my words).

    Still an interesting alternative to blades considering the density even if the power is a bit high.
