This is the back of a server we are putting together for a customer. This is a fully populated RP8420 with four cells carrying 32 cores and a fibre channel card for every slot. The 8420 is very versatile. All of those resources can be configured as a single 32 core server, or the cells can be divided up with hardware partitions into individual systems. You can take that division further with virtual partitioning.
It does carry a large footprint when compared to some of the blade options available, but we still see a lot of the RP and RX 84/86XX hardware in use. If you have any needs for your own cell based systems, we have a number of upgrades in stock.
