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."
