Cray scoops Brit switch maker staff and assets from administrator

Mops up after Gnodal collapse

Security for virtualized datacentres

Cray, the supercomputer maker, has bought intellectual property assets from the collapsed UK switch maker Gnodal and is taking on "the vast majority of staff" to bulk up its European R&D team.

Bristol-based Gnodal, a small start-up with just 15 employees, was venture-backed so we infer that it failed to get a new funding round.

The company, which went into administration in October, designed high-density, super fast Ethernet switches for HPC shops, and its technology should mesh in nicely with Cray's product portfolio.

Cray's press release is here, and there is a good summary of Gnodal's history at Wikipedia. ®
