SGI and IRIX SGI hopes to emerge as a leaner, meaner organisation by the end of the third quarter. The hardware maker this week filed an amended reorganisation plan that calls for it to finish off bankruptcy proceedings by September. If all goes as expected, SGI will trim its total debt down to USD 70m from USD 345m. Some of the debt will be removed in exchange for the privilege of investing more money in SGI 2.0.

I think SGI finally realized that clusters are eating away at their market. So they decided to come out with their own

One biggest problem with white-box linux clusters x86 is hardware failure. If they use high quality components like they used to with their workstations then this helps solve that problem.

If they can offer a powerful cluster at a decent price with a good support contract they might have a winner on their hands
