LINUX SERVER VENDOR Pogo Linux today unveiled the Katana 4100 Blade Server, featuring AMD Dual-Core Opteron processors. The server offers the highest computing density in the industry with 24 sockets for dual core Opterons, meaning there's a total of 48 processors in a 4U enclosure. The server is compatible with quite a few versions of Linux, including Red Hat Enterprise 4, Fedora Core 4 and CentOS.

The Katana offers 12 blades inside the 4u enclosure with two processor sockets per blade. The Katana apparently provides a lot of flexibility, having the ability to configure each blade with both Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron processors simultaneously.

If you're after a Katana 4100, expect to dish out $9,999 for a four-bladed enclosure, and you can get your hands on one come the 22nd of this month. µ
