Penguin Computing plans blade servers

Linux computer maker Penguin Computing will offer a "bladed" server design with numerous servers in a small space, Chief Executive Sam Ockman said in an interview at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo this week. The system, a rack-mountable model 5.25 inches tall, holds nine or 10 two-processor blades and will be available within the next six weeks, said Pat Patla, director of product marketing. Penguin Computing laid off a quarter of its work force in August but lost its major competition in June when VA Linux Systems announced it would abandon the hardware business.
