The Hemeris Blade
« on: February 11, 2003, 06:08:45 PM »
Hemeris has a new dual G4/733 Blade Server.

A blade server is not a super big interesting thing for the Amiga market, however, its is on the margins of interest here, and as you can see, from my mini-interview, it turns out there are possible 'possibilities' here (hahaha, wow what a line, look ma I'm a journalist)...

Ahem, back to the subject at hand:

From an e-mail, Alain Marsily of Hemeris:

Q: Is the hemeris a POP design?

Answer:  No, that design lacks smp capability, and besides this just isn't a POP design.

Q: What is your northbridge/southbridge solution?

Answer:  Our chipset is the marvell discovery 2

Q:  Does your server design include AGP expansion?

Answer:  Our design has no expansion at all, but we are evaluating expansion for a future design.

Q:  Why choose a dual 733, as opposed to an 800mhz?

Answer: Because the 733mhz
--is cheaper
--dissipate less
--more importantly allowed us to add a faster L3
cache at a reasonable price

Disclosables specs should be available soon.

They are on the right track...;-)

You are a smart guy, but...

Trolls get treated like "crap," not customers.

Marktime didn't say anything out of place.  Maybe I misunderstood.

MarkTime, BBRV.. If you guys are going to reference another thread somewhere, even for humorous things, please use a link or a name to clue everyone else in?  Thanks.

Inside jokes are okay, but some inside jokes can be percieved as having a bit of heartburn.  :flame:

Thanks for clarifying.  Maybe Bill doesn't understand that not everyone crawls other sites every day looking for arguments...  


Maybe in the future, please clarify what you're referring to so that we can minimize any possible confusion (and flamewar potential)?
