"Our customers have been asking for cost-optimized open-hardware platforms as the foundation of their software-defined infrastructures," said Costa Hasapopoulos, President. "WHITEBOX OPEN™ servers are the ideal high performance solution for demanding applications such as Content Delivery, Cloud Services, Software Defined Storage, Virtualization, and Analytics/AI. At the same time, these innovative platforms provide benefits of scale and volume, component standardization, ease of service logistics, and the means to avoid vendor lock-in."
