HP offers slimmer telecom server

Hewlett-Packard has introduced a new server chassis for telecommunications customers, a 10.5-inch thick product that can accommodate as many as eight servers. The bh3700 product can accommodate server "blades" with Intel or HP processors running Windows, Linux or the HP-UX version of Linux. HP had positioned the preceding 22.75-inch thick bh7800 as its "blade" server chassis. But with the acquisition of Compaq Computer, the bh line is being sold for telecommunications customers only, with most customers steered toward Compaq's ProLiant blade line that packs more servers into a smaller chassis.
