Very cool, well done to Rackable, they’ve been doing well recently. The more vendors we have, the more choice there is which has to be a good thing for the consumer, let’s not forget that by knowing what the different vendors are doing in their space, I am better informed about the platform and more able to ask my vendor(s) if they are going to provide similar functionality.
