believe the central power supplies used boards like these to create high amp
DC to send to the various CPU blocks in the full-rack chassis. Several jobs
ago, my company was given a very large AViiON system in the hope that we'd
port our database/4GL product to the system. Some work started in that
direction, but didn't finish before EMC bought DG and servers were scrapped.
The three rack behemoth stayed in the lab powered off until they closed the
facility some years later.
What a waste. It is possible. Someone else suggested that it came from
a Clariion disk array (what's up with the "ii"?) ... it looks like it
would fit in the poser supply box for one of those.
