Start-up enters ultradense server market

Start-up e-Appliance has begun selling a computer that squeezes four separate servers into an enclosure 1.75 inches thick, the company said. The company competes not only with larger companies, such as Compaq, that plan to begin selling their own "ultradense" servers but also with smaller companies such as Einux, which sells a four-server machine 1.75 inches thick. The four-server e-Appliance SuperScaler 500 costs $7,700 for a basic model and $23,500 for a fully configured model.
