Blade servers and Linux go together like Slashdot and any story about Linus Torvalds, so I’d like to link to a cutesy little diatribe about blades over at our sister blog Server Specs.
Apparently, Hewlett-Packard has introduced “Shorty,” a “smaller blade chassis looking to capture the attention of smaller companies in a similar way that the BladeCenter S aims to. It’s 10.5 inches high, fits eight blades and can plug into a standard 110-volt wall outlet. All in all, it’s a pretty good mini-BladeSystem. Called the c3000, the chassis has its own MySpace page.” That quote courtesy of colleague Mark Fontecchio, News Writer and current North American vagabond (inside joke alert).
Done snickering? Because it’s totally true and it begs the question: Does Tux have a MySpace page yet, or is he totally into Facebook? These are the things I need to know.
