vnunet.com has an article on container computing (think Sun’s Project Blackbox…er, Modular Datacenter) with this great quote
“The market is a little slow,” George Reitz, vice president of sales at Rackable Systems, told vnunet.com.
“Until we see better software support then that will be the case. At the moment only the biggest or fastest companies are using them to augment existing systems.”
Right, so we knew the market was “slow” for these. But this is the first I’ve heard of software taking the blame. I’ll admit I’m at a loss to understand what software problems there could be outside of the usual pain of moving from deskside computing to supercomputing. Anyone out there shed any light on this?
