Intel Modular ServerIntel Corporation announced the launch of its first modular server building block products that support a server specification announced last July by the Server Systems Infrastructure (SSI) organization.

In using these modular server building blocks, system builders can uniquely integrate computing, networking and storage capabilities in one system for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), and their needs for budget-friendly IT simplicity and flexibility. The modular server building blocks are based on Intel Multi-Flex Technology, a set of management and storage technologies developed to enable ease of use, low-cost and flexibility.

The Intel modular server building blocks have the ability to support up to six server compute nodes and 14 serial attached SCSI 2.5″ hard disk drives, as well as two Ethernet switch modules, integrated storage attached network and a management module. The server compute nodes support the latest quad and dual-core Intel Xeon processors in a two-socket motherboard.
