Cray Lands $200 Million Linux-Opteron Super Deal with DOE
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

A few weeks ago, supercomputer maker Cray said that the next quarter or two might be a little bumpy, but that it was pretty confident that it would make its numbers for the year. And, apparently, with good reason. Last week, the company announced that it had landed a whopping $200 million deal to build an Opteron-based parallel supercomputer that runs a hyped-up version of Linux for the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

HP Says It Will "Blade Everything" As Next Gen Boxes Launch
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Hewlett-Packard last week launched the next generation of its BladeSystem blade servers at an event in its Palo Alto, California, headquarters, and Ann Livermore, who is essentially third in command at HP (after chairman Patricia Dunne and chief executive officer Mark Hurd), was on hand to put the announcement into a much larger perspective. While the new BladeCenter c-Class machines might be able to give HP the pole position in the blade server market, HP laid it on a bit thick in trying to position a server launch as something much larger than that.

JBoss Moves Into Systems Management, Delivers Seam 1.0
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Open source middleware juggernaut JBoss, now part of Linux distributor Red Hat, hosted its second annual--and perhaps final--JBoss World customer and partner event in Las Vegas last week, coinciding with the 10-millionth download of its JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite (JEMS). Having secured its position in the middleware space and been acquired by financially secure Red Hat, now JBoss is pumped to move out from the middle into the systems management space and to establish, through the Seam project, itself as the framework for Web 2.0 applications.

The X Factor: Virtual Server Sprawl
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

It is hard to find a server maker who is not gung-ho about virtualization these days. This might seem a bit perplexing, given that one of the main marketing drivers for virtual machine partitioning or logical partitioning on modern servers is that by carving up a physical machine into virtual, dynamic slices, customers can do server consolidation on a grand scale, and in theory reduce their footprints.
