Hardcore Computer has announced that Scott McNealy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems, is serving as an advisor to the company's executives. Hardcore Computer designs, manufactures, and markets high-performance computer systems using their patented liquid submersion cooling technology to remove heat, the main barrier of electronics performance.
An early advocate of the networked environment, McNealy championed a network-based computer system based on Sun's Java software, a universal programming language. Sun Microsystems was built around the Stanford University Network (SUN) Unix processor and was part of a large wave of interdependent Silicon Valley startup companies. McNealy came from a business background, having gone to Stanford's Graduate School of Business for his MBA after receiving a Bachelor's degree in economics from Harvard.
‘In addition to bringing his depth and breadth of technology experience to the table, Scott McNealy is renowned for being intense, disciplined, driven and focused,’ said Hardcore Computer chief executive officer Al Berning. ‘We have much to benefit from Scott's strategic counsel on the direction of our company and products. We are very fortunate to have Scott available as an advisor.’
