Short Take: Hitachi embraces Profusion

Hitachi Data Systems is selling eight-Xeon processor servers based on the Profusion chipset--though not the same Profusion chips as Intel will be selling. Hitachi is a licensee of the Profusion design and makes its own in Japan, said Michael Krieger, vice president of PC servers for Hitachi. The servers cost between $50,000 and $200,000, and run either Windows NT, Sun Solaris, Santa Cruz Operation UnixWare, or Novell NetWare.
