Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"New rack mount chassis design will feature marked
improvements to airflow, density and maintenance access."
"Linux NetworX announced today the completion of its first phase
in a revolutionary engineering effort to provide a more efficient
alternative to the standard 19-inch chassis designs used in many
clustering applications. Code named the "Sundance Project", the new
design will be unveiled August 15 at the LinuxWorld trade show in
San Jose, Calif., and will feature marked improvements to airflow,
density and maintenance access."
"Our extensive experience building some of the world's largest
clusters has helped the Linux NetworX engineering team identify
advanced ways to improve critical issues not addressed by the
standard chassis designs available today," said Glen Lowry,
president and CEO of Linux NetworX. "Our initial prototype offers
significant advantages over standard designs. New features include
improved cooling and the ability to increase the number of
processors that can fit into a standard rack without adversely
effecting system temperature."
