Egenera upgrades top-end Linux servers
Egenera's servers include 20 thin "blades," electronics boards with two or four Xeon or Pentium III processors, that plug into a rack about 6 feet tall. Intel is working on future Xeon processors, including the "Gallatin" product for four-processor servers in coming months and the "Nocona" product for two-processor servers in 2003. Gallatin is built using a manufacturing process with features as small as 130 nanometers; Nocona will use the 90-nanometer process.
