The article features Azul server, a starter unit with 96 microprocessors and costs $89,000, from Azul Systems. Azul Systems CEO Stephen Dewitt said that his hardware costs half much over time because it uses half the power or less, takes up far less space and needs less manpower to manage. Azul boasts 24 cores per chip, with up to 16 chips packed into a single server. Those chips can sop up the millions of small communications chores coursing through data centers.
