The new product is designed to deliver 410Gflops of performance in a rack-mountable 1U blade server form factor.
Mercury says that such blade servers will likely see use in compute-intensive embedded applications such as image processing, medical imaging and seismic processing. In addition, the company says that rack-based blade servers, like the 1U Dual Cell-Based Server, will be used increasingly in aerospace and defence applications.
The Mercury 1U dual Cell-based server joins the previously announced BladeCenter-compatible dual Cell-based blade, the compact Turismo system, and the PowerBlock 200 product, each of which offers a Cell BE-based solution.
