Hardware upgrade for free public Mascot Server

We have upgraded the public Mascot server to an IBM eServerTM BladeCenterTM, as described on the Mascot Cluster product page. There are 14 blades, each containing dual 3.06 GHz Xeon processors and 1.5 Gb memory. The operating system is Debian Linux. The new system will provide the increased capacity needed to cope with the very large numbers of searches submitted during peak hours.
