Kontron's NSN2U IP Network server is a 2U rack mount server with the latest and greatest Xeon processor and is suited for network data applications with intense I/O and compute performance requirements. Other features include PMBus, DDR3 memory, directed I/O virtualization technology, hot-swap redundant fans, up to 96GB of memory, and support for up to 8 hot-swap 2.5 inch SAS/SATA hard drives. NSN2U will become available by July 2009, according to the company.
