Think of it this way- IBM puts human faces on their innovation which is good

Maybe the nice lady is not working out. It is like Intel using actors to promote technology. Use the guys to sell it.

Nothing wrong with that though. They show cars with humans by the side. This could be a new level of marketing.

It is a bit buried but the HW is here: Chassis: http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/flex/chassis/index.html Compute Node: http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/flex/compute-nodes/x86/index.html Top level web site location: http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/pureflex/enterprise/ Look at the virtual tour or datasheet

No offense to Rodney but perhaps IBM could borrow a concept from a car industry and put a nice lady in front of the pure system if they are concern of showing technology details...what's the point of that picture?...if we are to make building technology exciting for young people we have to present it in more inteersting way

Instead of showing an executive and a cabinet with a blue cover IBM could show us what is inside the box or at least how the front panel looks like...Kris

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
