Rackable adds 1/4th busload of servers with quad-core Xeons

(Load based on the average seating of a Greyhound bus)

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Rackable Systems is willing to cram the Intel 5400 chipset into pretty much any chassis it can get its hands on. Today the server n' storage firm began selling 13 new servers based on Xeon 5000 series quad-core chips.

The company's new herd of boxen all have support for Intel's 1600MHz front side bus, and sport sixteen memory slots compatible with 800MHz fully-buffered DIMMs.

And now for the rainbow of form-factors. Hope you like bullet points!
