SeaMicro Launches an Atom-Powered Cloud Computing Server with 512 Atom processors in a 10u rack mounted unit. Thanks to clever engineering, the company has fit eight server processors into a card smaller than a sheet of paper and hundreds of chips into a space usually occupied by less than a dozen.

If you want to run an Oracle database or an OLTP server, then stick to a Xeon machine. But if you want to just serve up pages, “your calculator can do that,” said CEO Andrew Feldman. “You don’t need aggressive branch prediction and all these tricks that the microprocessor industry has brought in to wring additional performance out of processors.”
