Short Take: Sun readies "Flapjack" server

Sun Microsystems on Monday will debut "Flapjack," a super-thin, single-purpose server, sources said. The server,just 1.75 inches thick, uses a 300-MHz UltraSparc chip, is geared toward telecommunications companies and Internet firms needing to stack lots of computing horsepower in very dense configurations.
