Former Compaq execs announce 'Razor' servers

Author: JT Smith

From LinuxToday: "Transmeta's Crusoe processor and Linux will be key to a group of ex-Compaq executives' plans to "redefine server
economics" with a high-efficiency server platform aimed at Internet data centers.

RLX Technologies was unveiled in a teleconference today. Headed by former Compaq Systems Division chief Gary Stimac,
and former president of Compaq's North America operations Michael Snavely, the company has yet to produce a prototype
of the new platform, code-named "Razor", but they promise it will leverage Transmeta's low power consumption and heat
output to provide a more cost-efficient server platform."
