SYS-CON Radio Interviews Tom Barton, Rackable Systems

LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2004 San Francisco

SYS-CON Radio Interviews Tom Barton, CEO of Rackable Systems, live at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2004 in San Francisco about Rackable's leading-edge data center server products, and his company's open architecture approach to technology design and manufacturing.

Pioneer of large-scale deployments, Barton tells too of the early role played in The Google Success Story by this market-leading manufacturer of rack-mount servers...in conjunction with Linux of course.

Rackable built Google's first 10,000 servers, had early success with Yahoo! too, is now Intel's biggest channel partner and is one of the largest Opteron systems vendors in the world. 70% of Rackable's deployments are Linux, he notes.
