Blade servers as told by the master
IBM, HP, Sun and Dell dissected
Meat Cast It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to a new age - the age of Semi-Coherent Computing.
The audio selection below marks the first in what will hopefully be a long line of hardware-themed broadcasts. We'll be using Semi-Coherent Computing to explore the current state of data center affairs, cutting edge technology and good, old fashioned hardware history. Anyone with suggestions on topics they'd like to see covered or people they'd like to hear interviewed should send e-mail to hardware (at) theregister.com.
This first show - code-named 'Too Hipp to Burn' - has us talking to Chris Hipp, co-founder and CTO of blade server pioneer RLX Technologies. Hipp knows his blades, servers and microprocessors, having worked at RLX and Orion Multisystems in addition to working with numerous hardware start-ups.
In this 30 minute show, Hipp and your reporter cover the major blade players and the state of the blade market. We also touch on some supercomputing items, blade PCs and the semi-coherent nature of reality. Anyone who wants to consider themselves up to speed in the blade game will need to listen to this show. Seriously.
Special thanks go out to legend in the making Todd Phelps for letting us use his song "You Can Call Me Daddy Tonight." You'll find Phelps's web site here and his MySpace page here. Do yourself a favor and click.®
Re: BladeRunn... oh, ferchristssakes...
yo, amanfromMars, is these any way that I can translate that into reasonable English?
I know I have to read this site with <sarcasm> and <irony> tags enabled, but you defy all logic.
Just answer me this:
Are you the same person who writes all the documentation I get with all my hardware?

"but its a superb interview and great easy listening while coding some boring systems... for our blade servers!"
It certainly plugged in to the hilt on MISystem and that is PROMISing. Are Blades the de facto Operating System for Virtualisation and Quantum Communication ....... which as you may or may not already know, researches Teleportation Modes/Nodes?
Kudos Ashlee, you'd think such a topic would be a cure for insomnia, but its a superb interview and great easy listening while coding some boring systems... for our blade servers!
Ed - Please fast track a few more of these ;) 1 daily would be good.
