At these densities, I'd rather just say that you sell a "hot product";-)

**Not true. Air temp coming out of Xeon BladeRack is mildly warm (actual
temp is 110F at exhaust). Over 50 of these deployed (66x50 nodes)
without a failure related to heat. SC2002 & SIGRAPH  had BladeRacks in
Intel and AMD's booth, fully populated running 24/7, sitting on padded
carpet, 70-75F temp without a single failure/error. The same racks have
been in production since.

Interesting.  Vertical case mounts and nifty control features, hmmm.

**Come see them at Linux World - AMD's Booth. You will be impressed. We
do offer free evals!!! :)
