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." The Sundance Project is one of many development projects currently underway at Linux NetworX to further advance its cluster technology. The new chassis design, along with other upcoming technology developments, will provide Linux NetworX customers with the most powerful cluster technology available.
