Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Rebel.com, based in Ottawa and formerly known as Hardware
Computing Canada, sells a line of Linux servers that are based on
Intel's StrongArm chip. Rebel.com will add Transmeta's designs to
that NetWinder line, the company said at the PC Expo trade show
"The Crusoe chip will be used in a future line of "gateway"
computers that will connect networks of computers in homes or
businesses to the Internet. With the arrival of comparatively fast
but inexpensive DSL (digital subscriber line) and cable connections
to the Internet, combined with an ever-expanding number of Net
gadgets, gateway servers are a hot area."
"Though AMD and Intel have unveiled power-saving techniques
of their own, Transmeta's methods have won praise from
technologists, and major computer manufacturers are expected to
incorporate Transmeta chips into their product lines. Rebel.com
chose Crusoe because it's compatible with Intel chips and because
its low power means it can work in a small box that doesn't require
a fan for cooling. "These are very important strengths...which
differentiated it from other processor architectures we evaluated,"
Rebel.com president Michal Mansfield said in a statement."
