Hitachi Data Systems has updated its VisionBase server line, including the addition of a new eight-way machine, and Dell Computer also announced yesterday that it will soon start shipping an eight-way server.
The Dell PowerEdge 8450 can be ordered from September 7 for shipment at the end of next month. The 8450 runs on up to eight Intel Pentium III Xeon 550MHz processors and uses Intel's new Profusion chipset. Six of the servers can be stacked in a standard rack.
Hitachi is taking orders now for delivery in Asia/Pacific expected by year's end, the company said yesterday.
