Rackable and BioTeam roll out Linux cluster

Rackable Systems and The BioTeam have released Rackable Linux cluster servers bundled with BioTeam's Inquiry bioinformatics software tools suite.

Inquiry includes more than 200 bioinformatics applications that can be accessed through a web interface while Rackable manufactures and sells high-density server and storage products aimed at companies with high-demand computing environments.

Rackable customers include Yahoo and Google, with their web farms and search engines, as well as Pfizer and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on the pharmaceutical-scientific end of the business.

Rackable and The BioTeam have collaborated for the past couple of years, said Tom Barton, Rackable's president and chief executive officer, who attended Linuxworld, where the Linux servers with Inquiry were demonstrated.

Rackable is the first large-scale server supplier to offer Inquiry on Linux.

The cluster server with Inquiry is available now worldwide with pricing starting at $5,000 (£3,000) for a non-commercial licence, up to $15,000 (£9,300) for commercial use, with the price higher for customised configurations.
