Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Do you need a workstation? And we mean, an
honest-to-goodness, take-no-prisoners, kick-butt Unix workstation?
Then you should be looking at VA Linux Systems' tiger shark of a
system: the VA Linux 420."
"It's a box that'll make power users drool. Designed to run
rings around most workstations hard at work on CAD, CAM, DTP,
software development, and other staples of a workstation's life,
the 420 starts with an Intel state-of-the-art 810e chip set and a
133MHz system bus, and works up from there...."
"Running Red Hat Linux 6.2, we found this system to be a
compelling Linux workstation. And make no mistake about it, the
word is Linux. If you already know Linux, the box is ready to go.
Unlike Corel's software-only package-Corel Linux OS-this is not a
system with which someone who doesn't know Linux can sit down and
start working immediately."
