:This sounds like Hammer will be very well suited for embedded products
:like NAS boxes. Indeed Hammer would make a great product as a combined
:backup/file-server appliance, using CIFS to serve Windows clients.
:I am curious how much CPU such an appliance would ideally need, i.e. how
:CPU-bound Hammer is, for example compared to UFS. Any recommendations?
:For example would a low-power 1 GHZ single-core Sempron work out well or
:is it better to use a Quad-core? I'm happy with any qualitative
:Thanks in advance.

    Yah, I think it would work very nicely in that regard.  HAMMER's cpu
    use is about the same as UFS's.  Some things are more costly, other
    things are less costly.  It winds up about even in the end.
