An all inclusive architecture. How could they lose? I wanted one until I got to the price tag. Should be a win for server farms.

Hello Haven't they re-invented the VME architecture ?

The cartridge form factor here is smaller than anything I have seen from the VME and CompactPCI folks that fits into a muscular server-targeted chassis. The VMEs of the world might sharpen their pencils over this one. Maybe they could break into the mainstream server world with another chassis.

If the new HP servers offer a better value than what the ODMs can offer, then HP will get that business. I think these servers are pretty amazing

But Rick, in general ip2design makes a good point, no? As for me, original or not, I'm happy to see a bold idea tried by an American company.

I believe HP has done something denser than VME (45 processor boards in a 4U) but probably without its mil/aero ruggedness (and cost) and more aligned with PC server standards such as PCI Express and Ethernet interconnects

I'm not really getting the appeal here. 45 wimply processors in 4U doesn't sound that great, given that anyone can get 16 conventional sockets in the same space - 512 cores, 64 ddr3/1600 channels! maybe the story here is the backplane, which hasn't seemed to get much coverage. does it provide something other than 2x Gb and power?

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
