Pogo Linux Inc., a leading Linux systems vendor based in Redmond, Washington, announced today an AMD64 Linux notebook; a 5U, 12-terabyte storage system; a turnkey Beowulf clustering solution, and other new products. Pogo Linux, a Linux World Silver Sponsor, is demonstrating all new products in booth 1273 at Linux World.
"Customers turn to Pogo Linux for the most advanced Linux hardware solutions and expertise," said Tim Lee, Pogo Linux CEO. "Enterprise IT customers want higher density, higher performance systems with the stability, power and affordability of open source. Our new server, notebook and storage solutions represent Pogo Linux's value proposition: Performance, best of breed configurations and Linux expertise backed by a responsive, experienced and knowledgeable support team."
The Pogo Linux KonaBook 3100 notebook is one of the first notebooks built from the ground up for Linux. Because Pogo Linux has control over the hardware and software, the notebook can be configured to customer specifications.
PogoLinux also announced a new cluster in-a-box offering that gives customers high performance clustering capability at prices starting at less than $28,000 for 16 nodes. While many cluster solutions are optimized for hundreds or thousands of nodes, the Pogo Linux ComputeColony Beowulf Cluster Series is available in 16, 31 and 64 node configurations and gives customers the performance of clustered computing with pricing similar to that to conventional server rack offerings.
