Intel’s betting that combining an Atom processor with an integrated chipset will provide enough ooomph to power a small business server for the home, SOHO and SMB server market. InternetNews.com has the details.
Intel is aiming to tackle the small-business server market with its first server platform based on the Atom processor.
Unveiled here today at the CeBit trade show in Germany, Intel’s new take on the Atom — the processor most widely associated with the popular netbook form factor — relies on coupling the CPU with a low-end server integrated chipset. The idea is that the combination will provide enough power to satisfy the storage needs of home, small office/home office (SOHO), and SMB customers without breaking the bank or fattening their energy bill.
This is not the first Atom-based server, but it is the first from Intel (NASDAQ: INTC).
