Will Azul Reign on the Server Market?
A 105-person company, Azul Systems, is almost ready to enter the competitive server market with a new approach to computing named 'network-attach processing,' similar to the NAS approach for data storage. In "Azul: A Server Startup with a Plan," BusinessWeek Online writes that the company will release its product in early 2005.

Azul designs its own chips and the first boxes will come with an amazing number of 384 cores. These servers will only run 'virtual-machine' codes, such as those written in Java or .net. And the company claims that its servers will be ten times more efficient than other servers. Of course, this is largely unproven technology and the company is trying to build its credibility by giving access to its boxes to selected undisclosed customers for early evaluation.

So will Azul unseat IBM, HP, Sun and Dell? Time will tell, but Azul already envisions a second-generation box with 896 cores. Read more for selected excerpts about this radical new approach to computing.
