HPCwire: Linux Networx has enjoyed record revenue growth over the last several quarters. In Q2, the company enjoyed its fifth consecutive record quarter in a row. Over the last six years, Linux Networx has refined its HPC offerings and grown its customer base to the point where it is now considered one of the premier supercomputer vendors. But some changes are afoot.
In the past few weeks HPCwire learned that the company had started to do some internal realignment. There were rumors that as many as 60 workers had been laid off. At the same time, they were looking to expand other parts of the workforce. Subsequently we learned that a rather large amount of venture capital money was heading its way. In an exclusive interview, Linux Networx CEO Robert "Bo" Ewald tells HPCwire what prompted these changes and what it means for the future of the company.
