Dell to Resell SeaMicro Servers

SeaMicro's server rival, Dell (NASDAQ: DELL), has a reseller agreement for the SeaMicro SM10000-64 server which packs 256 of Intel's dual-core, 64-bit Atom N570 processors in a 10U rack-mounted chassis. As noted in this report on The Register, it is just a reseller agreement and Dell is not putting its label on the machines or OEMing any of SeaMicro's technology. And there is no talk yet of Dell going all the way and buying SeaMicro.


 

"It may not be a big deal to Dell, which is the third largest supplier of servers in the world ranked by revenue, behind IBM and Hewlett-Packard, but it is pretty significant seal of approval for the SeaMicro design and its place for certain kinds of processing jobs.

"According to Acosta, the reseller agreement covers only the SeaMicro SM10000-64 server, which was announced in February and which packs 256 of Intel's dual-core, 64-bit Atom N570 processors in a 10U rack-mounted chassis. Dell is not peddling the older and original SM10000 servers, launched in June 2010, which makes sense because these machines only supported 2GB of memory per server node and only ran 32-bit code. Dell is also not reselling the SM10000-64HD, a denser machine sporting 384 of the dual-core Atom N570s that debuted back in July."
