The two classic midrange systems are the ES7000</p>
Aries 510 and 520 servers. The Aries 510 holds between 4 and 8 Xeon chips
from Intel, supports one domain and has 8 I/O slots. The 520 can fit up to
16 Xeons, support two domains and has 16 I/O slots.
The larger Orion 530 and 540 servers stretch up to 32 Xeons each. Both
systems have 32 I/O slots available and can support at least two domains
with the 540 supporting up to 4 domains.
A 4-way system starts at $35,000 and runs up to $750,000 for a 32-way
Interesting. I want! Now all i need is 3/4 of a million dollars for the
server, and hopefully i can get Linux running on it so I don’t have to pay an
other 750,000 for the OS!
