Data centre specialist Egenera has released a new blade system based around one of Intel's fastest server processors.

Egenera has brought out a two-processor blade server that uses Intel's 2.8GHz Xeon chip. The server fits into Egenera's Processing Blade family, which also has systems based on slower Xeon chips and Pentium III chips.

Egenera said its blade products have proved particularly popular among financial services companies. Some vendors have focused on using the compact blade server form factor to make their systems as dense as possible. Egenera, however, has gone with faster processors and a less dense design that appeals to companies using blades for running business applications, as opposed to Web or e-mail serving, for example.

Egenera's blade servers fit into its BladeFrame chassis that also handles IP (Internet Protocol) networking and storage networking and runs the company's management software. The BladeFrame chassis starts at $200,000 (£129,470) with six blades, the company said.
